Baje grew up as a young boy near Shonto and Black Mesa on the Navajo reservation.
"After taking care of the sheep, my brothers and I would sit around in our Hogan and make up stories. I had a lot of fantasies as a kid. My imagination really ran wild. Baje began putting this vivid imagination into drawings as early as third grade."
The bronze sculptures that Baje has recently been producing are his personal depiction of the traditional Navajo dancers.
Writing and illustrating children's books is another accomplishment of this artist.
Baje has received numerous awards and recognitions including a sculpture award in 2005 at the Santa Fe Indian Market for his sculpture, "Last of the Long Hairs".
