My Photo

Hopi Indian Reservation, Arizona

  • Swhp704
    The Hopi have restrictions of where and what you can photograph. My guide made sure that I did not take pictures of anything taboo. I was introduced to kachina carvers, pointed out ancient pictographs on canyon walls and showed me his cornfield during a drought year. Photography was allowed for all these subjects.

Native American Medicine

  • Pppf114
    Modern and traditional medicine men along with powerful potions from yellow bee pollen to Corn Mountain. Medicine men use their special abilities to channel medicine, or power, to influence events as well as to heal the sick. In many cases, the word "medicine" is interchangeable with the word "sacred".

Wobbly stepping stones guided us into a granite crevice that runs behind the presidential heads— reminding me of an "Indiana Jones style" secret entrance.
