Hi Everyone,

Join us October 9th from 4:30-5:30 pm at Lobo Lodge (Native American Museum in Classroom 27, located at Lobo Elementary School, 200 Avenida Vista Montana, San Clemente, 92672).

Mrs. Rendon and Mrs. Phillips, Teachers will read, Arrow to the Sun, by Gerald McDermott. With vibrant colors and bold geometric forms, Gerald McDermott brilliantly captures the stylized look of Pueblo Indian art in this Caldecott Award-winning retelling of an ancient legend. A young boy searches for his father, but before he can claim his heritage he must first prove his worthiness by passing through the four ceremonial chambers: the kiva of lions, the kiva of snakes, the kiva of bees, and the kiva of lightning. Striking in its simplicity and grace, Arrow to the Sun vividly evokes the Native American reverence for the source of all life—the Solar Fire.

We will also be creating two Pueblo-style crafts, clay pots and God’s Eyes (Ojos de Dios).
The Pueblo Indians of New Mexico have been living in the upper region of the Rio Grande River for more than 600 years. During that time, their way of life has been challenged many times, but they have managed to maintain their most basic beliefs and traditions. The area where the Pueblo Indians live is hot and dry. Their ancestors made pots in which to collect and store water. The people of the Santa Clara Pueblo have the same word for clay and for people, nung, because they believe that the first people emerged from Mother Earth. We will also be making clay pots and decorating them using the designs in Arrow to the Sun as inspiration.

A God's eye or Ojos de Dios are common in the Pueblos of New Mexico. It is a spiritual and votive object made by weaving a design out of yarn upon a wooden cross. Often several colors are used.  The spiritual eye of the Ojos de Dios is thought by some believers to have the power to see and understand things unknown to the physical eye and to provide protection.

This will be a great opportunity to view the 2,000+ Native American artifacts in the Lobo Lodge Museum as well as have fun with a beautiful story and fun craft! We hope you can join us!

Sincerely,

Stacy Yogi

EVENT:  20th Annual Ancestor Walk and Bear Ceremony

 

DATE:  October 7th, 2017

 

CONTACT:  Michelle Castillo, (562) 533-0373micheg13@gmail.com   
                         Rebecca Robles, rebrobles1@gmail.com 

 

NOTES:  On Saturday, October 7, 2017 the 20th Annual Ancestor Walk and Bear Ceremony will be held. The walk was started by Acjachemen elder Lillian Robles, as a way to have the communities remember and honor the sacred sites that are our village sites, creation sites, holy places of our ancestors. Many of these sites have been altered or destroyed to make way for development. Although Lillian passed, her husband, Lou Robles and her children continued to have this event take place. Today Rebecca Robles continues to keep this ceremony going. Flyers will not be made, but we ask everyone to spread the word.

Starting at the sacred site of Panhe, the ceremony will begin (map and locations will be posted in another post to come) at Panhe a car caravan will then go to 7 sacred sites in Ajacheman and Tongva sites and end at the sacred site of Puvungna (the gathering place) on the campus of Cal State U at Long Beach.

Please bring a pot luck dish as feeding people is a part of the ceremony. Bring a chair or blanket, dress for warmth towards the evening. Bring some kind of lighting, a flashlight or lantern. There are no lights at the circle. There will be ceremonial fire for Bear Ceremony. As dusk comes we prepare for the Bear Ceremony, which is a Healing Ceremony.

Please bring a pot luck dish as feeding people is a part of the ceremony. Bring a chair or blanket, dress for warmth towards the evening. As dusk comes we prepare for the Bear Ceremony, which is a Healing California Ceremony. Women on their moon cannot come into the circle as you are very powerful at this time, and that power overcomes the prayer and people who need healing will not get the healing. Women entering the circle must wear skirts or wraps. Absolutely no drugs or alcohol allowed, or disruptive behavior. We thank you for following these protocols.

More detailed information will be provided. You can contact Michelle Castillo 562-533-0373micheg13@gmail.com or Rebecca Robles on rebrobles1@gmail.com.

Navajo Student Wins Highest National Honor for Young Poets

Kinsale Hueston, a senior Navajo student in California, has been recognized for her poetry

Tanya H. Lee • August 26, 2017

To say Navajo student Kinsale Hueston, 17, is an aspiring writer would be to miss the point. The senior at St. Margaret’s Episcopal School in California is by any definition an accomplished poet who has just been named one of five National Student Poets for 2017, the nation’s highest honor for young poets.

The National Student Poets Program is a project of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, which administers the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.

The Navajo student will go to Washington, D.C., at the end of August for the official award ceremony at the Library of Congress. The weekend will include a private workshop with the 21st US Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera. Awardees will travel to communities, libraries and museums as literary ambassadors over the next year, and receive a $5,000 academic award.

“I’m so grateful for this opportunity I can’t even put it into words,” Hueston told ICMN. “I never imagined I could be on this track doing what I loved—I really love writing and being an activist and sharing my work and my poetry and sharing my identity. I just find it incredible.”

Hueston was born and raised in southern California. “My mom grew up on the Navajo Reservation in Navajo Mountain, Utah. When I was growing up we would take a lot of trips out to the reservation. I would always love coming out and talking to my family, my cousins, and a lot of what I wrote in my early poetry was about being home on the reservation,” she said.

But, the Navajo student explained, “as I grew older I had trouble staying connected to my culture while I was in California. Poetry was my way of reconnecting with my roots and my Native American heritage.”

Hueston talked about how poetry and being Navajo are inextricably connected for her. “I seek to contemporize Native culture with my poetry. A lot of Navajo culture is about tradition and I focus my poetry on important things in Navajo culture, especially the maternal childhood figures in my life like my grandmother and my aunts and my mother. Navajo have a matrilineal society so that plays a lot into my poetry.

“Also I am activist, so I talk about social justice issues. I write about violence against Native women, the loss of Native languages, racial prejudice and other social justice issues that affect my culture. It’s amazing that now I can speak about these issues on a national scale and continue to do what I love, thanks to the National Student Poets Program,” she said.

Hueston is president of her school’s Native American Culture Club, and in April, her family hosted a group of students at Navajo Mountain. “With the guidance of my mother, who was extremely helpful in educating my classmates about Navajo culture and customs, we organized a service trip for 11 kids out to the reservation over spring break. We worked at the high school and we helped out around the community wherever we could, especially helping elders take out all the trash that had accumulated over the years because there’s no formal trash system out here. The students who went on the trip made really profound connections with the people here,” Hueston said.

Hueston has an older sister, Tara, who is a veterinarian, an older brother, Ryan, who is an artist, and a younger sister, Shea, who also attends St. Margaret’s. Her father, John Hueston, was a U.S. Attorney in Santa Barbara before he became the lead prosecutor in the Enron case that resulted in the conviction of Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling for manipulating stock prices in the late 1990s. “That case kind of launched his career and he’s become such an incredible speaker and father and role model,” the Navajo student said.

Her mother, Mabelle Hueston, grew up on the Navajo Reservation, attended boarding school and then went to Dartmouth College, followed by a stint at the Harvard Graduate School of Education where she earned her master’s in teaching. “She teaches Native American history at Cal State Long Beach,” said her daughter. “She’s an amazing mentor and role model to me. I’ve always admired her for how hard working she was and how hard she worked to get where she is now.”

While she finishes up her high school career and decides which college she wants to attend, this Navajo student said she intends to make the most of her year as a National Student Poet. “I dream that I can encourage young writers to continue writing and be a role model for young Native American writers who perhaps went through the same identity crisis I went through when I was feeling very disconnected from my culture.”

Some of Hueston’s poems can be read on the  Art and Writing website.

Join us for a week of fun, fascination and friendship as campers learn about the animals here at ZOOMARS and those who share our planet!

Through crafts, games, songs and storytelling the children will be enriched and enlightened each day about the amazing world of animals and what they teach us.

Campers will work side by side with zookeepers to feed and care for the animals. Campers will also get to polish up their saddles for a special ride around Zoomars trail with one of our Cowboys. We’ll also have special assignments like feeding the llamas, grooming the goats and other surprises. Each day we’ll join in on creating a special craft and will take them home at the end of the week. Campers will enjoy Guest Speakers and their connection to animals all around.

During the course of the week, special guests who do animal shows at ZOOMARS will be dropping by, like a real beekeeper who will show us where honey comes from, a butterfly exhibit and hands on butterfly feeding, and a Native American dancer who will show us how recycled feathers are sacred in the ancient dance.

Miss Jacque, the camp’s director and Juaneno Indian, will talk about Her family’s experiences growing up right here on the zoo’s historical grounds. She’ll share stories about how these early settlers lived in harmony with Mother Earth and the importance of animals in Native American culture. Of course everyone will get to enjoy all the fun ZOOMARS has to offer as they pet, feed, ride & slide while spending lots of cuddle time with the guinea pigs.
