This morning offers demonstrations and hands-on opportunities of such traditional Hopi lifeways as spinning, piki making and parched corn preparation. We are invited into the Moenkopi home of Charlene and Harold Joseph. Charlene honors us with a visit to her ancestral home in the old village where she shares a poignant, little-told story that has its beginnings many generations ago, still having affect today. We begin to understand the true meaning of place connected to spiritual identity. After dark we attend the Katsina Night Dance in one or more villages, and witness these spirit beings as they work among their people with prayers. Traditional dinner provided. Overnight Second Mesa.

In the afternoon we venture into hidden Tawaa Park, a well-preserved site with extensive petroglyphs, where we learn the right meaning they plan in Hopi cosmology, history and present-day traditions. Share through storytelling with Charlene and Harold Joseph. Traditional dinner provided. Overnight Second Mesa.
