    Marshall Masayesva’s Mission to Create a Conservation Corps for Hopi Youth

    Ancestral Lands

    February 7, 2019 | While he was growing up on the arid, remote Hopi Nation in northern Arizona, Marshall Masayesva never paddled a kayak or went backpacking. People who lived in his community spent a lot of time outdoors, but the term “recreation” was seldom uttered; Masayesva never thought of himself as an outdoors person.

    That began to change after high school when Masayesva’s sister encouraged him to get a job in the conservation field. “She wanted me leave the reservation, so she threw an application at me,” he says.

The field is planted with Acoma white corn, Hopi yellow watermelons and Acoma pumpkins.

    Ancestral Lands

    August 4, 2017 | As I watched the activity within this group, witnessing expanding connections between the inspired participants, I was reminded—yet again—of the reverence Indigenous people have for this Earth, and how it is typically instilled as soon as a small child begins to comprehend.
