WHAT IF you could redirect $25 you already spend every month toward the stewardship of 320 acres of environmentally protected ancestral lands? Wild land. A little spot on the earth where indigenous spiritual roots of sustainability are still nurtured for future generations; where honeybees thrive surrounded by 12,000 acres of pesticide free forage; where indigenous farming practices are bringing back the sacred in the way we eat, grow and harvest our food. A place where storytellers, poets and mystics still gather around small fires to share holy words, songs, poetry and good healing stories.
Become a LAND, FARM or STORY STEWARD with a monthly pledge! Your monthly stewardship in action through giving provides steady funding so crucial to sustain this precious land sanctuary and ancient circle of Native wisdom!
Your monthly Land Stewardship supports:
Hermitage. Your stewarding honors these pristine ancestral Puebloan lands in New Mexico - a wild place where people can listen to the voice in the land and reconnect to beauty in nature.
Arroyo Los Tanos Watershed restoration project will humidify the landscape and reestablish grasses, forbs, woody shrubs and provide watering holes for wildlife developing a riparian aquifer that will sustain a healthy wetland ecology at Hamaatsa.
Woven Stone Wall is a communal healing wall for all people with an emphasis on First Nations people, families and communities. Through traditional talking circles, people share historical trauma stories in the safe nurutring process of the listening circle and then make a cathartic pilgrimage to the wall to place a healing stone.
White Dawn House, Gosh-cuy-ya-nhi Cuh-drew-dhi, is the prayer sanctuary being built at Hamaatsa. It is from this “heart center” which everything else radiates. This healing-prayer house is modeled after the original spiritual house given to the ancient Pueblo people by the Creator.
Demonstration Site. As a small-scale, sustainable community, Hamaatsa is an educational demonstration site for simple "off grid" living integrating renewable energy systems including wind, solar, and water harvesting.
