Joseph was born and raised on the Hopi reservation and in the neighboring community of Tuba City, Arizona. As an active member in school and sports activities, she maintained traditional and cultural practices of her village community that revolves around the Hopi cyclic calendar. She gives credit to her parents and grandparents for instilling the cultural values of respect, reciprocity, and honesty growing up. She also credits her daughter, Kara, as a main driver for her to persevere in her education. Carrie deeply feels that it is part of her responsibility to encourage and assist with the protection of her daughter’s generation and the many that will follow.
