Hopi Life, With Hopi Derek Suwaima Davis
Tuesday, April 26, 2016
A few years ago I interviewed Hopi World Champion Hoop Dancer, Derek Suwaima Davis. Derek spoke about living on the Hopi reservation and his relationship to seeds, plants, water and nature. The hoop he uses became, for me, a symbol of wholeness and unity. Derek's language and the emotions he communicated, touched me so deeply that I wanted to share through this conversation and learn more about his experiences. Derek will join me on this show to talk about the culture he lives in, the meaning of hoop dancing, and his connection to the earth and nature. I look forward to hearing his insights and hope you'll join me for what promises to be a gentle and beautiful conversation about Native American wisdom.
