A Community of Givers
Native American Artists for Japan is dedicated in leading fellow artisans in a monetary relief for victims/survivors of the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan through an organize effort to auction hand-made Native American art. All money will be donated to the Red Cross.
Mission Statement
Our mission is to unite and inspire fellow Native Artists to give back to our brothers and sisters abroad. Because Japan has been a big supporter of Native American arts, providing income to artists, it is out of our hearts as artists to raise funds for water, food, and basic necessities.
Online Auction Benefit April 5, 2011
Our 1st auction on eBay will start on April 5, 2011 and will include as many 15 pieces of art. This auction will last for 7 days, then NAAJ will post more art the following week.
If you plan to donate art, we need to have all art pieces in as soon as possible. Thank you for all your efforts!

Hopi Call for Prayer to Restore Balance


Hopi call for Prayer to Restore Balance

March 17,2011
...
The Hopi are praying for the people of Japan and for the people around the world as we face crisis in our world out of balance.
We are in a time of great change upon mother earth. These events have been foretold by our Elders. Through our Prophecies and our Ceremonies the sacred land of this earth is now crying. And our children are looking to Hopi to balance life for their future.
Our Elders have given us guidance for how to move through these changes. Humanity is now choosing the path upon which
all life will follow and we have known this time would come.

As Hopi, we ask you to join us in prayer to balance mother earth and all life.

We believe that, through our prayers and that if we pray with good hearts as told by our Elders, we can lesson the impact of
these events.

As Hopi, we join our prayers with those of the Dalai Lama along with people from around the world to send healing to Japan,
the earth and all life. In this time of change, we ask all the people of the world return to a more balanced way of life.

Hopi say there is a path to follow that allows for us to move through this time of change:

Walk gently upon our earth with respect for her and all life.

Connect your heart with the heart of the path to the future.

Plant gardens, respect our Sacred life giving waters and all of life for future generations of our children.

Kwak wha , Lolmani (Thank you, may there be good things in the future.)
