When we line up the food run convoy there are too many vehicles to fit in the parking lot of the Wetherill Inn in Kayenta. So everyone moves to the parking lot at the shopping center for the traditional smudging that takes place before we depart for Navajo Mountain.
But it's a beautiful and relaxing drive allowing time to reflect on experiences of the previous day and enjoy the beautiful scenery and the anticipation of the upcoming food run.
When we arrive at the chapter house at Navajo Mountain, yesterday's finely tuned group of volunteers knows exactly what to do and gets right to work.
previous blog described how volunteers at the warehouse had prepared panne fabric to be given to the Elders for use in making blouses and skirts. Here is the fruition of all that work.
