  • Heard Guild Explores: Yaqui Easter Celebration in Guadalupe
    All day
    2018.04.14

    The most sacred occasion for the Pasqua Yaqui Indian community are the Lent and Easter ceremonies. This is a perennial favorite trip for Guild members, who enjoy the dances, instruments, masks and costumes that are an important port of Yaqui art and culture. The Yaqui guard the mystery of its rituals scrupulously, so no photography or even note taking permitted.

    Please contact Sandie Straub at sandie93@cox.net or (602) 526-6194 to reserve a spot on this trip, or to obtain more information, or to suggest (or lead) an outing.

As a Steward and member of the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy (MSC), I have arranged for a specially tailored tour for our Heard Guild and Las Guias to the Azatlan archeological sites on the banks of the Rio Verde. Members of our MSC  “Pastfinder” committee will guide us and tell us all about the ruins, the settlement, the history, the canals, the tools, the lifestyle and civilization of the Hohokam people.
