What is Earth Altar?
This is an offering
This blog is, above all, an expression of wonder. It is an ongoing, intricate, ever-changing love letter to the Natural World, the Ancestors, and the Future. It is an invitation to us all to fall in love with the Earth again so that we may hear Her above the din of human activity and remember how to live.

Raising the Roof
The Pine Ridge Reservation, home to the Lakota Native American people of South Dakota is in need of help. A sacred and important meeting place, where multigenerational Lakota have gathered for community and spiritual ceremonies has been greatly damaged. In an effort to protect this special place, a GoFundMe has been created to raise $5,500 dollars by the end of the year to repair the structure. Please join me in contributing to this effort.
