All in a magical place where ceremony and Native people still grace the land.
People, Places and Ceremony
|DAY 1: Schnebly Hilla sacred place, a land where Native people shared time with elders, medicine wheels and the technicolor landscape. Connection to mother earth and our ancestors on a sacred walk, prayer and drum circle.
DAY 2: Building the Sweat Lodge
DAY 3: Sweat Lodge is probably the most important Native Ritual. The “inipi” or “sweat lodge” usually occurs before and after every other major rituals like the “Sundance” and “Vision Quest”. It is also a “stand alone” ritual meaning that it occurs whenever it is needed. Its original purpose was to cleanse or purify individuals.
|DAY 4: Honanki Dwellingsmade of masonry construction, this exceptional pueblo is one of the region’s largest, having once held 60 rooms. These ancient and sacred grounds are a way to connect and learn about the native ancestry.
DAY 5: Relaxation Private Day
DAY 6: Red Rock Crossing we are treated to some spectacular high desert scenery. The way up and down the ridges and river walks, is sure to thrill you and weave a time and life of harmony with nature and breath taking views. We walk the river path to the end where the path turns to pools and a special ceremonial ground is hidden away. We bring our drums into the river, sit down on the river rocks and sing to the earth mother.
