Voices - Kuwanwisiwma transcript


LEIGH KUWANWISIWMA: The Grand Canyon has a spirit. They say that we emerged from the Grand Canyon at a place called “Sipapuni,” which is the trail to the underworld. And then from there we emerged into this present world. And eventually, we will travel into the spiritual world. 

And when that happens, our spirit travels to the Grand Canyon, particularly around the area of the confluence. And that is the home for our ancestral people and their spirits. And from the Grand Canyon, the spirits travel throughout the world as clouds. So every day they are with us. 

So I hope that the visitors will share that kind of feeling, that the Grand Canyon, and humanity, are all one.
