Tutskwat Oqawtoynani

Founded in 2016, Tutskwat Oqawtoynani (helping the Earth to gather her strength) has been working to clean First Mesa from top to bottom. Located in the northeast corner of Arizona, Tutskwat Oqawtoynani directly impacts over 1,985 Hopi and Tewa members who live on or around First Mesa. The three Hopi villages Tewa, Sichomovi, and Walpi on top of First Mesa, have been needing protection from illegal dumping where sacred ceremonies take place.

Influences from the outside world and historical trauma have since changed our value system. It is time to remember that Hopi are stewards of the lands, caretakers of humanity. To date we have removed an estimated 85 tons of trash in less than a quarter mile behind, below our mesa, leading with the vision, through discipline and responsibility we will preserve the sacredness of our Tewa and Hopi Villages. Upholding our promise to protect and ensure that humanity enjoys peace and prosperity, while creating a space for healing and recovery.
