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

    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".

I believe you meant to say UNscrupulous. To say they are a scrupulous organization is to say they are diligent, thorough, and extremely attentive to details; very concerned to avoid doing wrong. Nonetheless, a good article on an activity that needs more oversight.
Thanks!

I give to Adopt a Native Elder Program based in AZ. The woman running it is awesome.

I am writing this in behalf of National Relief Charities. It is sad to see this misinformation, which is over 15 years old and inaccurate, being repeated before checking with us. Over 70% of our income goes toward programs. This is well above the Standards for Charity Accountability established by the Better Business Bureau.

For current and accurate information about National Relief Charities and the true impact of our programs, please visit www.nrcprograms.org. There you will find our press room stocked with current news on our programs, our annual report, our IRS return, our effectiveness report, impact stories, our Plains and Southwest service area, and all of the other publications and documentation that make us fully transparent. Again, that's www.nrcprograms.org. Or feel free to email PR@nrc1.org if you have specific questions. Thanks.
