You are invited to take a moment to express your heartfelt prayer letting the Tribal Leaders of the Northern Pueblos know that you are aware that you are inside the lands they hold sacred, their church; and letting them know that you stand in solidarity with them for the care of these lands.
Sending your prayer has the power to weave connection with the People who have lived here long before our arrival. Entering right relationship with them and this land will allow all of us to lay our burdens down and move into a time of great healing.
Allow your heart to speak as you acknowledge your presence here within the church of the Tewa world and let the tribal leaders know how your life is blessed to be here.
Let them know that you too hold gratitude to the Creator for this land and pray for clean land, air and water.
Let them know that you pray no more nuclear weapons will be produced in this sacred area and that through serving life-giving energies, real Peace will come for us all.
Please write your prayer and email or mail it to HOPE. Your prayer will be copied and sent to the Tribal Leaders. Thank you!

“These prayers are about now and going forward with the acknowledgement of where we are. It is vital in planting the seeds for healing in this place that acknowledgment of place, what this place is to its inhabitants and incorporating prayer which is the mannerism for sacredness and for healing. Once this is established, it will be understood how our story of the Atomic Age needs to begin.
In the meantime, gathering the stories of the history can and should be done. This story is painful, which is another reason for the prayers to be gathered and sent, so that we don’t get stuck in the past and be able to forge forward to include our story which will make the present stories about the Atomic Age that are being presented complete and truthful, for the benefit of future generations.” Marian Naranjo of Santa Clara
