One elder looks to pass on his legacy; but in a culture defined by custom, where do tradition and progress meet and can they coexist?

The name Hopi is a shortened form of their autonym, Hopituh Shi-nu-mu (“The Peaceful People” or “Peaceful Little Ones”) … Hopi is a concept deeply rooted in the culture’s religion, spirituality, and its view of morality and ethics. To be Hopi is to strive toward this concept, which involves a state of total reverence and respect for all things, to be at peace with these things, and to live in accordance with the instructions of Maasaw, the Creator or Caretaker of Earth. The Hopi observe their traditional ceremonies for the benefit of the entire world.

“We may be little but we don’t think small. It’s the courage of questions, of grasping our true circumstances, and not pretending we are at the center of it all, that is adulthood. That’s being a grownup. Nothing in the cosmos diminishes the profundity of life and love. This show is a celebration of life in the universe.”

While my students were writing, I put some classical music on from youtube. Those who were finished would meet me on the carpet. While they waited, I put the video of the symphony on to keep them occupied for a couple of minutes so a couple of students can finish their work. My favorite part of this picture are the students in the back imitating the conductor. Teaching definitely has its moments.
This is wonderful.
