"Diné teachings about the duality in life. There is male and female rain, the mixture of these waters give way to moisture, mist and youth rain. These exist at the peaks of holy sacred mountains. From here we pray...creating positive thoughts toward the mountains as did our ancestors. These positive thoughts, prayers of supplication for attaining personal goals and aspirations, we pray for "hozho" (peace, beauty, balance and harmony) in daily living within our environment. We depend upon water for almost every aspect of life, we are brought into this world in water.

You will not be able to choose backpack styles at this time. Both events are while supplies last.*
