Shima' is our Mother, Earth created in Beauty, who guides and infuses life. The whole of the land and sky - Beauty in Four Directions - the life-force at the heart of our work: This is Shima'.
In Tse'hootsooi - the valley between the mountains - SHIMA' is a creative sanctuary. We are artists at 7200 feet, on the Colorado Plateau of northern Arizona, between the four sacred mountains, in the heart of Navajoland. Like our ancestors, we gather local sacred plants - corn, sage, cedar, Navajo tea - and infuse their Shima' vitality.
