However Wide the Sky: Places of Power



The history and spirituality of the Indigenous People of the American Southwest are deeply rooted in the Land. Since the beginning of time, they have been stewards and protectors of their home lands, past and present. These places intimately connect the People and their beliefs to the natural world. No place is ever abandoned, the landscape is forever living. This is their story, of the Land and who they are.

Sacred places are the truest definitions of the earth; they stand for the earth immediately and forever…If you would know the earth for what it really is, learn it through its sacred places.

—Scott Momaday, Kiowa

If we can’t protect the Earth, can’t protect the sky; if we can’t protect our sacred sites, then we’ve failed the world.

—Jewell Praying Wolf James, Lummi
