Sacred Peaks Cowl
The Sacred Peaks Cowl, designed by Mountain & Mesa, was released in celebration of the 2020 Flag Wool & Fiber Festival.
All proceeds from Sacred Peaks Cowl pattern sales in 2020 were donated to critical Covid-19 grassroots relief efforts on Indigenous lands.
About the Sacred Peaks Cowl
Rising over 12,000 feet above the Northern Arizona horizon, six volcanic peaks separate earth and sky. The San Francisco Peaks, traditionally known to the Hopi as Nuva’tukya’ovi (The Place of Snow on the Very Top) and to the Navajo as Dook’o’oosłííd (The Summit Which Never Melts), are a sacred place to thirteen tribes. The peaks are the home of ancestral spirits, medicinal herbs, and pure drinking water.
The Sacred Peaks Cowl pays homage to this beautiful and sacred land, from the towering ponderosa pines and quaking aspens that sit on the mountain flanks, to the golden meadows and dramatic night sky that surround them.
Covid-19 Grassroots Relief Efforts on Indigenous Lands
100% of the proceeds from pattern sales in 2020 were donated to critical Covid-19 grassroots relief efforts on Indigenous lands.
The grassroots organizations supported include the Navajo & Hopi Families COVID-19 Relief Fund, an organization working to provide direct and immediate relief to Navajo and Hopi families to prevent the spread of Covid-19; Chinle Planting Hope, an organization focused on community development projects and supplying hot meals and food baskets to Navajo Nation elders; and Protect Native Elders, an organization addressing the COVID-19 response on tribal lands in addition to addressing water, food and broadband access for native communities.
These three organizations continue to do critical work on Indigenous lands. We encourage you to learn more about and support their work.
