The Value of Solitude It’s mid-afternoon; the clouds are dancing on summer breezes sending shadows that skitter along the canyon walls. A sliver of the muddy Colorado peaks out between buttes that are so old oxygen was still forming in the atmosphere when the rock was laid down. Beyond the east rim, for hundreds of miles, stretches the plains and mesas of the Painted Desert. The world is awash in pastels, a palette of muted umber, vermilion, scarlet, orange, green and grey. Perched on a limestone outcropping at Cape Final my gaze takes in the confluence of the Little Colorado River and Grand Canyon. The silence of this place only interrupted by cascades of wind rushing up the canyon walls to rustle through the ponderosas. I can feel my heartbeat. What is the value of solitude? In our oh so busy world where can we go to find it? As the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Wilderness Act approaches we are reminded of the values, such as solitude, for which Grand Canyon and all national parks were establis ...

For Nora and the Ursaline sisterhood: The Wanderings of the Bear Clan (HON-ÑAMU) in Phoenix, AZ After we had left the sípahpuni the Bear people separated and went ahead of the others. First they came somewhere near the present site of Phoenix, and stayed there awhile. They remained for or shorter or longer periods at many different places. Finally they came to the Little Colorado River, and about there it was where they assumed the clan name, but just exactly where the place was nobody can tell. Their forefathers say that the party once came upon a dead bear that they looked at, and from that they were called forever afterwards the Bear clan. Another party that traveled with them took the hide of the bear, of which the hair had already been removed by little animals (Mû'yi. Pl. Mû'mutyu), who use hair or wool for their nests or burrows. These people took the skin and cut from it carrying straps (piqö'sha), from which they were called Piqö'sha clan. Another party came upon the bear at just this time ...

Day 4 We rise with the conch. I have a cup of coffee as I pack my gear. The second blowing of the conch calls us to French Toast for breakfast. Yummy. We are in an Oar Boat with Jerry today and it’s another beautiful day on the river. We get another history lesson as Jerry points out the Puebloan Granaries high above the river at Nankoweap Canyon (mile 53). These granaries date back to AD 1100 and were used to store corn and seeds. We officially enter the Grand Canyon today. Stopped at a great spot for lunch where a ledge provided a lot of shade, so Jerry called for an afternoon nap! It was awesome to kick back for a little R&R. The highlight of the day is a visit to the Little Colorado River (LRC) at mile 62. This water in the LRC is a turquoise blue, much like the Caribbean. It’s also warm! Swimming in the LRC was a blessing after the 48 degree water in the Colorado itself. We hiked up the LRC to a great swimming hole where we wore our life jackets like a diaper and floated the rapids. ...
Daredevil Wallenda Completes High-Wire Walk Across Grand Canyon Daredevil Nik Wallenda completed a historic high-wire walk on a 2-inch (5-cm) steel cable over the Grand Canyon on Sunday and was greeted by wild cheers after his hair-raising stunt. Wallenda, the self-described “King of the High Wire,” took 22 minutes and 54 seconds to walk 1,400 feet across the crimson-hued canyon with just a distant ribbon of the Little Colorado River beneath him. The event was broadcast live around the world. Wallenda, the first person to cross the canyon, made the walk without a tether or safety net. Wallenda could be heard praying almost constantly during the walk, murmuring “Thank you, Jesus.” He kissed the ground when he reached the other side. “It took every bit of me to stay focused that entire time,” Wallenda said. “My arms are aching like you wouldn’t believe.” He said he stopped and crouched down twice, first because of the wind, the second because the cable had picked up an unsettling rhythm. H ...
Taking nothing against Nik Wallenda's 1400' walk 1,500' above the Little Colorado River-lets set da record straight! This comes from a guy (me) that has put over 6,000 miles in the Grand Canyon. Nik did NOT walk across The Grand Canyon! That was all media hype! He crossed The Little Colorado River Gorge. The distance from Rim to Rim averages 10 miles. And the River is "the" Colorado not da "Little Colorado" What this man did was risky, and an accomplishment, no doubt. He comes from a long line of risk takers in the circus. But lets call his feat correctly!. and, incidentally the Sky Walk Glass Platform on the Hualapai Reservation is NOT over the Grand Canyon either! Note: The Grand Canyon covers 2000 sq. miles and has over 600 side cantons.

To a Historical Creationist, watching a first-ever unusual event LIVE, is a fact of enormous proportions. It was like being in the room when the first words were transmitted via telephone cable, and Alexander Graham Bell uttered the words, "What hath God wrought?!" With my palms sweating, tears welling up in my eyes, and with a prayer on my lips, I watched Nick Wallenda become the first man to tight-wire walk across the Grand Canyon Sunday evening. After months of preparation under severe weather conditions, Nick, balancing a 30' long, 40-pound bar and wired for sight & sound, step-by-step cautiously transversed a 2" diameter steel cable stretched across 1400' (almost 5 football fields) and 1500' above the Little Colorado River. He thanked God for each step, praised His name for the next step, noted the awe of God's created canyon, and after 22 minutes, 54 seconds reached the other side and into the arms of his wife and three children. He gave God the glory and knelt to offer a sincere prayer to God ...
Nik Wallenda is a man prepared to die. On Sunday, in front of a global television audience of several million, the 34 year-old will step out on a 2in-thick metal wire and attempt to enter the record books as the first person to walk across the Grand Canyon. Higher than the Empire State Building, higher, certainly, than Wallenda himself has ever attempted before, the wire will be suspended a stomach-lurching 1,500ft above the Little Colorado River. Without a safety net or a harness, the only equipment Wallenda will use is a pole, which he will carry for balance. “We’ve tried to prepare for the possibility that I could die,” he says, with an admirable absence of drama. “My wife and kids would be looked after for the rest of their lives.” But there’s a difference between preparing to die and expecting to die. If anyone can complete the 40-minute walk across the canyon, it’s Wallenda. The daredevil already holds seven world records including the longest walk over a waterfall, which he achieved l ...
I have heard people speculate that racecar drivers harbor a death wish. Of course nothing could be more untrue. Nonetheless, those unfamiliar with our sport can’t fathom why someone would take the risks associated with racing. Nic Wallenda, 34, may not have a death wish either, but it’s hard for me to comprehend why someone would undertake the daring stunt he has planned for this evening. The seventh-generation member of the Flying Wallendas is set to traverse a steel cable running 1,500 free above the Little Colorado River in northern Arizona (without a tether or net). The event will be televised live on the Discovery Channel this evening at 8 p.m. Let’s all say a little prayer for Nic before he takes his first step on the wire.

Daredevil Nik Wallenda to try crossing gorge near Grand Canyon The Discovery Channel will broadcast Wallenda's walk live on live television at 8 p.m. EDT on Sunday with a 10-second delay. Wallenda will be wearing two cameras, one looking down the mostly dry Little Colorado River bed and one facing straight ahead. His leather shoes with an elk-skin sole will help him keep a grip on the steel cable as he moves across. Should wind gusts that are expected to be around 30 mph threaten to throw him off, Wallenda said he'll grab hold of the wire and wait it out if possible. A paramedic will be looking up at him from the river, he said. Wallenda is highly confident in his ability to reach the other side, having walked in 52 mph wind gusts during Tropical Storm Andrea with a torrential downpour and training with wind machines that simulated 45-55 mph gusts. The only thing that would stop him entirely is lightning within a 15-mile radius, he said. The more than 2-hour broadcast also will showcase the Navajo landsca ...
Thank you Angela: By Angela Davis: The confluence of the Colorado and Little Colorado River, located at the east rim of the Grand Canyon, is very sacred and significant to the Dine' (Navajo) and Hopi people. We believe that is where we emerged from the lower worlds in our creation stories. Our spiritual birthplace and is now being threatened by greed of our tribal politicians and outside interest groups; they want to build a tourist resort there, complete with a tramway/gondola to the bottom of the canyon, RV trailer parks, and fast-food restaurants. This project will permanently damage and desecrate this cultural sanctuary. The man depicted in the cartoon is Navajo tribal president, Ben Shelly. He is supporting the project, while preaching about sacred places, like Isreal, after meeting with Benjamin Netanyaho earlier this year. He considers Israel a sacred place, but disregards his own peoples' traditional faith and sacred grounds, calling them "superstitious" and "stuck in the old ways."

Posted by M. Charlie on Politics on the Navajo Nation taken from the Grand Canyon Escalade website: "We already posted that the Sierra Club is guiding hikes down the Salt Trail to the Hopi Sipapu and the Confluence for only $995 a person (click here for link).So where do 24,657 people go to party? Why the Confluence of course! It turns out that this is a primary stopping point, and they don’t stop nearby, they stop right on the Confluence, a Sacred Site. And what do they do when they stop? Why, they hike to the Sipapu and use the Salt Trail and Swim in the Little Colorado River. We keep asking ourselves why there is no outcry by the Save the Confluencee folks. Why isn’t it OK for the Navajo to charge $40 to ride a gondola to a secure site close to the Confluence but its ok to charge $2850 per rafter so they can tie up right on the Sacred Site and party? I guess that’s why Grand Canyon River Guides oppose the Escalde and has joined with Save The Confluence. Can’t have the Navajo making any money wh ...

LITTLE COLORADO SETTLEMENT TALKS HIT WALL By Kathy Helms, Gallup Independent, Diné Bureau, 12/4/12 WINDOW ROCK — The Navajo Nation and the Hopi Tribe walked out of a meeting Monday with Arizona parties to a proposed Little Colorado River water rights settlement after hitting an impasse on key positions endorsed by the U.S. Department of the Interior. According to the Navajo Nation Office of the Speaker, the meeting was arranged so Navajo leaders could meet and hear directly from the state parties on issues outlined in Navajo Nation and Interior position statements. Although the Interior was optimistic in its “Core Positions for a Near Term Settlement” that it could negotiate a settlement favorable to some of Navajo’s positions, the state parties were unwilling to compromise, the speaker’s office stated in a news release. Delegate LoRenzo Bates estimated there were nearly 100 people at the meeting, either in person or via teleconference. In addition to the tribes, those present included represen ...

S.2109 asks the Navajo and Hopi peoples to waive their priority Water Rights to the surface waters of the Little Colorado River "from time immemorial and thereafter, forever" in return for the shallow promise of uncertain federal appropriations to supply minimal amounts of drinking water to a handful of reservation communities. The Bill - and the "Settlement Agreement" it ratifies - do not quantify Navajo and Hopi water rights - the foundation of all other southwestern Indian Water Rights settlements to date - thereby denying the Tribes the economic market value of their water rights, and forcing them into perpetual dependence on uncertain federal funding for any water projects.

Yesterday I heard the people at the Winslow Wellness Conference talk about the Little Colorado River and it clearly appeared they don't agree with the SB2109..the settlement or anything that relates to giving up precious water..Then I heard people talking on KTNN about how wonderful it is to get educated off the reservation and to come back home to take baths.. I'm proud to say my education was about preserving and protecting my family, home, live stocks, land, ceremonies and almost anything of value. It was ok if I didn't shower or bathed for 2 weeks..I was still human and the holy ones heard my voice.
So what did we voter in leaders for?? To Shy away from difficult decision and hide behind the people. That is exactly what I see with the current council. They are faced with the difficult decision of approving or disapproving the Little Colorado River Water Settlement. Rather than addressing the issue, they tend to ask if the people have heard about it and whether they support it. I don't know about you, but we have a representative government. They are the ones who are supposed to garner the information and make an informed decision on behalf of the people. The current trend is not leadership.
Castle Science and Technology Center Children's Museum "Grand Falls is a natural waterfall system located 30 miles (48.3 kilometers) northeast of Flagstaff, Arizona in the Painted Desert on the Navajo Indian Reservation. At 185 feet tall (56 meters), it is taller than Niagara Falls. It dumps snow melt or monsoon rain into the Little Colorado River below. It is famous for its extremely muddy flow which is a major contributor to Little Colorado River opacity. It is said that the waterfalls are analogous to flowing chocolate depending on the amount of water present. Heavy rains or snow melt will produce spectacular viewing, photography and sound whereas the scarcity of water will produce only trickles or no flow at all. Grand Falls was formed when lava from nearby Merriam Crater flowed in to the Little Colorado River creating a lava dam. The river was forced to reroute itself around the dam and Grand falls formed where the reroute rejoins its original course." - Wikipedia
