A Special Request from the Apache, Navajo and Zuni tribes
by Robert Wilkinson
This just in. The largest fire in Arizona history currently burning countless acres in Northern Arizona is still uncontrollable and spreading. The fire has destroyed everything in its path, over 1/2 million acres so far. We are asked to join in a trans-tribal prayer to help the effort of countless firefighters and all involved.
From Dorothea Stevens, San Carlos Apache Nation: Pray so the winds stop and the rains start (without lightning please!) We are praying for the safety of all. Ask for heavenly walls to protect our land and animals from fire. All the choppers, manpower, planes, and bulldozers are not enough, they need our help.
We are one Nation as Natives and our traditional prayers to the Creator as Natives can be pretty powerful; not only are our tribal lands at stake (White Mountain & San Carlos Apaches, possibly Zuni, and some Navajo areas), but our non-native friends also need our help. Please let us all connect our minds, hearts and our prayers across the miles and pray.
Wherever you are and whatever you have planned, please stop for a few minutes and raise your hands to the Creator to ask for help. If all of you can forward this message across the Nations, we can reach many thru phone and internet. Please start forwarding ASAP to reach as many as we can. Please if your spiritual preference is not traditional - pray with us in however way you talk to the Creator. Thank you.
