Jayuya 2013

 

 COUNCIL OF THE SACRED FIRE
Jayuya, Puerto Rico


During International Indigenous People's Day 2013,
Sandra Riley and Travis Neff attended the
18th Annual Council of the Sacred Fire in central Puerto Rico,
coordinated by ceremonialist Margie "Kukuya" Nogueras-Vidal.

She sang to the ancestors as we all played music,
welcoming the morning sun over the lush mountaintops.

While Travis is working on a documentary video about our experience there,
these 18 photos that best capture what we saw and who we met
on the Island of Enchantment.
