Isolation

Hi everyone! We know people are safely staying at home practicing social distancing but we also know that this can be difficult and stressful. SO we wanted to provide you some activities, videos and virtual tours to try and help ease that burden. Today's theme is FARM ANIMALS! Every couple hours we will post a new activity or video about this theme. At 2pm if the weather cooperates our lambs will be exploring the property! Check back on our Facebook page to participate in all of the fun!

INTERVIEW: Sharon Begay and Churro Sheep

"The churro is like the buffalo, it's a very strong and spiritual animal."

To Walk In Beauty - Sharon Begay shares her family's story of reintroducing the churro sheep and the spiritual healing that followed as her family reclaimed their cultural identity. Stacia Spragg- Braude?s photographs provide an intimate window into that experience.

"We got everybody involved and it brought the whole family back together."
