Greetings to all near and far. Your Native American newsletter has a new name; "The Sipapu". Sipapu, a Hopi word, is a small hole or indentation in the floor of kivas used by the Ancient Pueblo Peoples and modern-day Puebloans. It symbolizes the portal through which their ancient ancestors first emerged to enter the present world. I think this is very symbolic for this newsletter -- for we are emerging every day of our lives. The message in your subject line will still read: Native American Newsletter from BellaOnline.com
"THE SIPAPU" will be the title at the top of each newsletter. My thanks to our forum member, Beetlemess, for suggesting the name.
Here's the latest article from the Native American site at BellaOnline.com.
Animal Spirit, Beaver to Bluebird
Beavers are hard-working, diligent and industrious little critters. They are great builders and very ingenious. The dams they build in their colonies provide them with deep, still waters.
