Folk singer Radmilla Cody has a repertoire, which consists of songs from the Native American half of her heritage. Radmilla is also African American: Her mother is Navajo, her father is black.

While Cody grew up negotiating the cultures of both parents, she tells Farai Chideya that she feels closest to her Navajo side.

Her latest collection of songs is called Seed of Life: Traditional Songs of the Navajo.
