HOPI RAINCATCHERS, WORKING FOR EARTH

Laurence de Bure is one of those rare people who can blindly and passionately follow their calling in life. Now she is helping the Hopi people with her life-time experience to restore their water springs.

Traditional tribal water knowledge carried by the Elders was lost when the youth were broken out of their communities by the boarding schools. But is now put into practice again by a small group of Hopi young men. They brought seven springs alive in this arid, drought ridden land. Twenty five more to go.

Just imagine the complete turnaround of the landscape and lives of the Hopi people if these sacred and ancient springs are fully functional. This what the Earth and the human family needs now: real time best practice. People committing and digging in to restore the ecology of our great Mother Earth. Thank you Rain Catchers, thank you Laurence!

With 25 more to go they could use a little help from their friends!

‘The work of the Waterock L3C and the Hopi Raincatchers shows a model that could engage large numbers of people in work that is of huge and immediate importance to mitigation and adaptation of climate change. I would recommend helping them in anyway possible.’ — John D. Liu
