The 22nd annual Hopi Holiday Project by Crossing Worlds Hopi Projects
December 2020 through January 2021
We welcome monetary donations and gifts in support of:
++ the 100+ Hopi children in foster care and for
++ the 350 youth of the traditional village of Shungopavi.
Hopi people appreciate the long time support of our local Verde Valley community and that of people from across the U.S and Canada.
The 2 photos below are from our fall delivery to the community center of 330 bags of school supplies for Village of Shungopavi youth.
Hopis are the descendants of the ancestral peoples of northern Arizona and still maintain ceremonial connection to many sites throughout the whole region.
Traditional Hopi people believe their ancestral sites are still alive with the presence of their ancestors. And today’s Hopi conduct annual pilgrimages to former village and other sacred sites in the region surrounding their remote reservation in northeastern Arizona. They make prayer offerings inviting the ancestors to support the continuance of life for the well being of all peoples.
The next 4 photos below are from our 2019 Hopi Holiday Project delivery.
