He has been involved in Social Justice, Criminal Justice and strongly advocates for the use of Dinĕh Traditional and Traditional ways in resolving conflict and helping people to heal using these ways. He believes our aboriginal knowledge of healing is used in our Justice Ways and has repeatedly remarked that the “Navajo knowledge of Justice is a Healing Way and not a Punitive Way.” He also believes, “Knowledge is Power and Knowledge is Healing.” This he advocates for in his teachings and presentations.

BLUEHOUSE has done extensive research in the Dinĕh Culture and Traditions and teaches in the area.

He uses the Sacred Mountain Bundle (Our Aboriginal Constitution), Protection Paraphernalia, Mountain Tobacco, Corn Pollen and Diagnosis Ways. He also is an Herbalist in very limited and specialized root digging and applying it to patients. Through this practice he has become stronger and advocates for the Protection of the Environment, our sacred ways and to help to Heal. He is an advisor to the Dineh Hat’aathlie Association, an association who preserves, promotes, protects and uses the Navajo Healing arts which has existed before the arrival of Europeans, NAC and other systems on the Navajo Territory.
