SOLAR, WIND, WATER & FIRE
"When you get your own power system, its yours. You purchase it and its yours. No power lines and no right of way into the villages. It teaches you to be conservative, because you're getting your power from batteries. You can't just leave your hallway light on for three to four hours. It teaches you to be independent." Debbie Tewa, Solar Electrician for the Hopi Foundation's former solar Project, NativeSun.
"Solar Debby" Tewa travels to small villages in N. California, Minnesota and Ecuador to teach about sun power, composting toilets, solar water pumps and wind turbines. She lives on the Hopi Reservation in northeastern Arizona.
"The force field of electricity emanating from the power lines is considered to be disruptive to the atmosphere, ambience and balance of the plaza and ceremonial areas, at the same time blocking the aesthetics of the sky and the panoramic vistas of the mesas." Hopi Foundation founded in l985.
12,000 Hopi live in a dozen 1,500 year old Hopi villages, the oldest continuously inhabited villages on the continent. 300+ Hopi and Dine (Navajo) homes have installed solar panels.

"The challenge is to transform human laws to match natural laws, not vice versa. The linear nature of industrial production must be transformed into a cyclical system. Those who watch carefully -- onaanaagadawaabandanaawaa -- know that this will require a technological, cultural and legal transformation."
