Shungopavi

Traditional Village of Shungopavi

The Ancient Hopi Mother Village of Shungopovi  [soo ngoo bavi], is a deeply Religious, very Traditional center of Hopi Reality.

The intricate and extremely beautiful Hopi Ceremonials, conducted by complex Spiritual Societies, are the center of Hopi daily life. The knowledge and Spiritual depth essential for these Ceremonies can only be carried forward through Highly Initiated Leadership, requiring years of sacrifice. Sharing jurisdiction with the Kikmongwi. Each moon cycle is the responsibility of a specific Mongwi, the Spiritual Leader from one of twelve Hopi Religious Societies. After completing the very Sacred Ceremonial Duties of each cycle, the next responsible Mongwi prepares a new stage of Sacred Movement. Thus the Hopi people are living within a continuous Cycle of Ceremony at all times.

Danas, Shungopovi is the sole remaining Hopi Village that still maintains and performs the complete Traditional Ceremonial Cycle. It is the last Sovereign Hopi Village with a fully Initiated Kikmongwi with all of the original Highly Initiated Religious Leaders that complete the full yearly Ceremonial Cycle.

Because of this, Shungopovi carries a great and profound responsibility for the preservation of the Natural Worlds and all Life. Our purpose and action is to Protect, Maintain and Renew this Sacred Knowledge and Traditional Way of Life.

The meaning of Shungopovi is ‘Spring that has Reeds Growing in It’. This Sacred reed is called Soo Ngoo Hu, which forms the raft needed for Passage to the Next World.

The Hopi People are located on three high Mesas in Northern Arizona, within the United States of America. Hopi Sacred Land covers an area bordered by Spiritual Corners – the San Francisco peaks to the Colorado River forming a Ceremonial Plaza at the Center of the World.

Hopi are the oldest inhabitants of North Americaand our Ancestry is traced through petroglyphs and clan migrations spanning thousands of years. According to the Directions of the Creator, we the Hopi, finally finding this Sacred Centerof the Universe, settled on the present Lands.

The Hopi Reservation is comprised of several villages, originally each with its own Kikmongwi (Village Chief). Today there are four villages within Hopi that still have a Kikmongwi; Shungopavi, Mishongnovi, Shipaulovi and First Mesa Consolidated Villages. These villages have the protection of following a Traditional Way of Life and governing.

These Villages are governed by elaborate Clan Systems, connecting all Hopi People and Leaders, each with specific Sacred Duties and Instructions, all of them for the Continuance of Life.

                                                      The Meaning of Hopi

Kad se ljudska bića stupio je na ovom svijetu, svijet Stvoritelja, tražili su dozvolu da živi ovdje. Stvoritelj im je rekao da živi vrlo jednostavno, samo njegova sadnog štap i nekoliko zrna kukuruza. Ako su bili spremni živjeti svoj život jednostavan, oni će biti dopušteno da ostane.

Humanbeings su dobili tri svete dužnosti

Oni su dobili Kukuruz, Sadnja Stick i malo vode, živjeti od zemlje.

Oni su dobili Sveta vjerske Upute, da se pridržavaju prirodne, Duhovni i Universal Worlds, Nastavak za svega života. Oni su ostati vjeran svojoj Instrukciji, uvijek zadržati svoj način života. U Hopi ljudi, od davnih vremena, čast ova tri svete dužnosti.

Tek kada uvažava ove svete vjerske upute ne jednom zaraditi Hopi ime.

Biti Hopi znači biti vjeran te originalnih uputa.

                                                The Dudavo – Hopi Wisdom

Kao što je jasno navedeno u Hopi učenja i uputa, su destruktivne snage današnje civilizacije su donijeli budući opstanak oba čovječnosti i svih života na kriznom trenutku.

Za opstanak života, za opstanak tradicionalnih svjetova, Vođe su svjesni da mostovi životnih sila mora biti obnovljena i održavana. Duh od prirodnih svjetova mora ponovno doći do srca naroda na Zemlji. Kroz dijeljenje duboke tradicionalne Duha u našem poslu - nadamo se duhovno iscjeljivanje energije sadržane u našim tradicionalnim načinima će inspirirati i motivirati sve narode svijeta.
