Working Hard to Make a Difference
Posted on 08/05/2010 @ 04:17 PM
All of the projects are coming along nicely. We are sweating, lifting, moving, shoveling, hoeing, raking and doing it all with great attitudes and open minds.
The Hopi group has been helping re-cement the village plaza and have helped in the clean up of old buildings and structures. The village plaza is a special place for the Hopi. Later this month they will hold their sacred snake dance, and our group feels good about helping the village prepare for this tradition.
Also, there was a lot of flooding that took place last week and many parts of the village were covered in water and mud-puddles. Our group dug an extensive system of trenches through the village and that ran off to the side of the mesa in order to drain the water. This was a great help to the Hopi and again our group is satisfied with being able to help wherever it is needed.
