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.

Í dag, 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

Þegar Manneskjur inn í þennan heim, heimurinn skaparans, þeir beðnir um leyfi til að lifa hér. Skaparinn sagði þeim að hann býr mjög einfaldlega, með aðeins gróðursetningu stafur hans og nokkurra kjarna af korn. Ef þeir voru tilbúnir til að lifa einföldu lífi sínu, þeir myndu fá að vera.

Humanbeings var gefið Þrjár helgu skyldur

Þeim var gefið korn, a Gróðursetning Stick og smá vatn, að lifa af landi.

Þeir fengu helgu Religious Leiðbeiningar, að viðhalda náttúru, Andlegar og Universal Worlds, fyrir áframhaldandi alls lífs. Þeir voru að trúna á kennslu hans, alltaf halda sína leið lífsins. Hopi Fólk, frá fornu fari, heiðra þessar þrjár helga skyldur.

Aðeins þegar geri þessa helgu trúarlega Leiðbeiningar er einn fengið nafnið Hopi.

Tilvera Hopi þýðir að vera trúr þessum Original Leiðbeiningar.

                                                The Dudavo – Hopi Wisdom

Eins og hefur verið skýrt fram í Hopi kennslu og leiðbeiningar, eyðileggjandi öfl þessa heims hafa fært í framtíðinni lifa bæði mannkyni og allt líf á hættutímum lið.

Til þess að lifa af lífi, til þess að lifa af hefðbundnum Worlds, leiðtogar eru meðvitaðir um að brýr af öflum í lífinu verður endurreist og haldið. Andi Natural Worlds verður aftur ná hjörtum þjóða jarðar. Með því að deila djúpum Traditional anda innan vinnu okkar - sem við vonum að andlega heilun orku sem finna má á hefðbundinn hátt okkar munu hvetja og hvetja öll heimsins þjóðir.
