Hopi Winter Heat Volunteer Project
Hugh and Lainie Hoglan, 2 of our very active volunteers, took the initiative to purchase their own new pick up and trailer to haul coal and wood for winter heat for Hopi families in need. We provided donations to this to supplement their Go Fund Me and personal donations to this project. A big thank you to them!
Lainie created teaching circles in bead jewelry making with Hopi ladies while Hugh was out on the long coal runs.
They also donated their trusty Suburu to a young Hopi family who needed transportation to get to work and also to make deliveries of donations in their village.

During this, our 20th anniversary, we focused on quality learning games, art supplies (which many Hopis use for their livelihood–kids learn to do art at home at an early age), men’s carving tools and sports items. Photos by Sandra Cosentino.
Hopi Ancestral Lands Support
We were pleased to make donations in support of the Hopi Ancestral Lands project and Adventures for Hopis outdoor training.
There were other projects not shown, such as: providing food and supplies for ceremonial activities during the year, family support; support for Hopi Foster Care youth during the year, and donation to the Hopi Education Endowment Fund.
