Dancing Kachinas Wish you a Happy Autumn!

Twin Rocks delights in autumn. Soon winter will be upon us, and then it is story time, a time to go huddle with our relations, explore the country, and turn inside to our thoughts and feelings for while.

It is a time of giving gifts, of being grateful, and of getting ready for new beginnings. And, as always, it’s a time to rejoice in being alive.

So, we, and these dancing Navajo and Hopi Kachinas, wish you a most happy autumn!

Sharing our World through Stories and Art

Navajo Creation stories tell us that people have made a journey through four worlds until they became the animals they are today.

Where did People Come From? Consider the Lovely Ladybug.

Ladybugs, evolution and creation are the themes that Jean B. Cly combined in this gorgeous basket she brought into Twin Rocks.

Navajo people believe that, in their earliest forms, they were ants and various bugs. Through the past four worlds they have changed into the people-animals that they are today.

Through her weavings Jean has led us, and taught us, many of the traditional Navajo legends and stories. Wonderful stories that make our world expand and teach us the possibilities of our imaginations and beliefs.  We believe learning different stories makes us better people.  That it makes us more compassionate beings as we walk this earth we all share.

Thank you, Jean, from the crew at Twin Rocks!
