As many of you may know I have been in Colombia in the Sierra Nevada Mountains with the Traditional People the Mamos and Sagas continuing the work that was started in New York at the Menla gathering, just returned today to the city. Today I received a forwarded email from a Traditional member of the San Carlos Apache Nation requesting for Prayer for the fire that is currently raging in Arizona and about to cross over into New Mexico.
This fire is astronomically huge and is destroying everything in its path. The request comes from a Traditional person and so, I pass this on to all of you. Please watch the news and read on line more about the devastation that is unfolding with this fire.
Here are links to news on line:
The following in part was sent in the forwarded email.
“the Wallow fire in
Northern Arizona is still uncontrollable and spreading. The fire has destroyed
everything in its path. If you have a local tribal medicine man please have them
join us in a tribal prayer to help the firefighters and all involved. Pray so
the winds stop and the rains start (without lightning please) We want to pray
for the safety of all, put the wall up to protect our land and animals from
“We are one Nation as Natives and our traditional prayers to the
Creator as Natives can be pretty powerful; not only is our tribal lands at stake
(White Mountain & San Carlos Apaches, possiblyZuni, and some Navajo areas), but
our non-native friends also need our help. Please lets all connect our minds,
hearts and our prayers across the miles and pray.”
Please join with all the Traditional People of the area and non natives to send prayer to send rain, with no lightning to the fire. CALM the winds, cool the lands and stop the fire. Pray for safety of all lands, people and animals.
Many blessings to you all for your support,
Your support allows for the work to continue.
A donation of any amount is welcome and appreciated.
From my heart thank you. Miriam
