“In our Keres language, we have a word, “Bah’shraa’me”. It expresses a kind caring action towards others and acknowledges the power and mystery of a divine plan of an almighty Creator as the way for harmony and peace to prevail for and toward one another. This behavior from the San Felipe Pueblo tribal government executed towards Hamaatsa is not the way exemplified by my Pueblo people. It instead reflects behavior worldwide of other humans where the oppressed become the oppressor. We can all benefit to take note of this dramatic historic incident unfolding within our beautiful state of New Mexico.” – Larry Littlebird
