In this blog post, the author explores a five day journey through the Navajo and Hopi lands where students bringing awareness to the Indigenous context of Roden Crater-a project created by light and space artist James Turrell-visited significant sites situated in the ancestral homelands of Fort Mojave, Fort McDowell Yavapai, Hopi, Havasupai, Hualapai, Navajo, Pueblo of Zuni, and Yavapai Apache tribes, and possibly others.. They also engaged in Indigenous sky observation techniques and concepts of holistic interconnectedness.
