Ngungu’lawu Tutsqwa I’qatsi,
Friends of the Hopi Traditional Peoples
and Touch the Earth Foundation
Thank you for being our friends!
We have been very busy with the responsibilities that we have been entrusted with. However, I wish to take this moment to say how much we appreciate those whom have come to help and our new friends.
Things in Hopiland are still very troubled. Those of you that follow the Native American News are aware of the so called “Hopi Tribal Council” arresting the Grandmothers at Dinhe, for praying on the wrong side of the fence without a permit, permission and imagine not even their Culture?
I will just say this once, “The Hopi Traditional Peoples” had nothing to do with this disruption of the Sacred Ceremony our Lakota Brothers and Sisters that have come to stand with us in prayers and peace. We, the Traditional Elders are Grateful. Yet our hearts are sad that the “Hopi” name is associated with such disrespect to Elders and Sacred Teachings of any other Spiritual Nations. We the Hopi know only a lasting peace will come from a Spiritual Peace and must begin within each one’s heart and mind for themselves.
I hope you all will join us in prayer for peace and awakening of these sacred truths for the Sacred 4 corners and all our relations.
