Segundo a tradição da tribo Navajo ao caminhar por este local sagrado, assim como a água e o vento esculpem as pedras, a sua mente também o será!

The flags at San Juan Regional Medical Center are lowered to half-staff today in respect and honor for Senator John D. Pinto who passed away surrounded by his family today, Friday May 24th, 2019.
Pinto was a Marine, Navajo Code Talker, a New Mexico State Senator for more than 40 years, and a family man. He worked tirelessly throughout his lifetime to serve native people. "He was a New Mexico icon and an American hero." said Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham.
"He dedicated his life to helping others and he changed the lives of so many people for the better." said Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez.
The San Juan Regional Medical Center family extends our condolences and prayers for the family, friends, colleagues of Senator John D. Pinto.
The road trip rolled us into the desert of Arizona, storm clouds looming but mercifully never packing a punch, allowing Nadia and I to summit our first desert tower. It was modest but suitably adventurous in high winds, the greens and reds of the Oak Creek drainage spreading out below us. Then we bumped back down the dirt back onto the highway into the Navajo Nation, buttes and towers populating the plains like the ships of the admiralty under full sail. The night was full of the gentle patter of snowflakes on nylon, getting gradually softer as the tent disappeared under a late winter storm. In the morning, a ranger hoisted the flag of the Navajo Nation under skies that had a lot more snow to give the snow came and went in flurries until we reach our destination... Telluride Colorado!

Reclaiming my power.
Reclaiming my ancestral traditions.
Yesterday, we planted corn the Diné way, in a sunwise spiral. The spiral is significant in Diné traditions because it is present in all creation. It is the same spiral on the top of our head where we incarnated from the second world into this physical world/body; the same spiral that exists on our fingertips to remind where we came from and where we are going. During this planting ceremony, we had four sisters present representing each direction & Thiago held space for us. We gave thanks to West for the waters that will help the seeds sprout and grow tall, to the North for the soil & the creepy crawlies that will nourish the roots, to the South for the sun that will help the corn grow, and to the East for the wind that will pollinate the corn. After giving thanks we each took two seeds, put them in the ground in the four directions and watered them with our saliva. Then we continued the planting in a sunwise direction. Feeling grateful for this corn, excited to tend to it & witness it grow, and curious about what it will teach me. We'll be planting beans and squash in the coming weeks.
