Oprah Winfrey visited the Navajo Nation this week to gather footage for an upcoming episode of her show, tribal officials said.

Talk show queen Oprah Winfrey visited Native Americans at the Navajo Nation on Wednesday May 31st, 2006 in order to collect footage for an upcoming episode of her talk show.

The TV star explored the Navajo capital of Window Rock, during which she watched children performing a powwow dance. Navajo Nation President Joe Shirley Jr. says, "It was a real honor to have such a celebrity grace us with her presence, especially on sacred ground right under the Window Rock."

Meanwhile, Priscella Littlefoot, who organized the event, says, "Oprah is our key to let the world in. Hopefully, Oprah's visit will portray that while we do have social problems, we're still rich in our heritage, our culture and language."
