Message from the Hopi Elders

Tumalo Creek awaiting possible bulldozers and construction projects. (See SWIP - surface water improvement project - on line). How could this natural resource be destroyed? Photograph by Su Skjersaa 2013

There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift, that there are those
Who will be afraid.
They will try to hold on to the shore; they will
Feel they are being torn apart and will
Suffer greatly.
Know that the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore;
Push off into the middle of the river;
Keep our eyes open and our heads above
The water.
And I say see who is there with you and
Celebrate.
At this time in history, we are to take nothing
Personally, least of all ourselves,
For the moment we do, our spiritual
Growth and journey comes to a halt.
The Way of the lone wolf is over.
Gather yourselves.
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and
Vocabulary.
All that we do now, must be done in a sacred
Manner; and in celebration.
We are the ones we have been waiting for.

Hopi Elder
