Where the earth touches you
Star Dance is a majestic 38 acres of High Desert in North Eastern New Mexico, which serves as a ceremonial ground for WhiteEagle Woman and the spiritual way that she carries. Star Dance is open to all who want to be touched by the magic of the Mother Earth and who are doing work to bring healing to our sacred hoop. The land encompasses a valley and a canyon with a river running through it. It has been the home of the animal nation, the bird tribes and the plant nation for thousands of years. Uninhabited by humans until recently, it has always been known as the valley without war. Five tribes, living in the surrounding areas, used this valley to source the chert required for tool-making. As this area was unique in providing the valuable rock, all tribes recognized the importance of being able to move through it in peace.
Today Pinon and Juniper trees dot the landscape, and the grasses are beginning to grow back. In the Spring the earth is blanketed with flowers of all varieties. As the land regenerates it is watched over by Pedernal, a giant mesa carved out of a volcanic explosion that sent flying rocks miles into the air, some of which have landed on Star Dance. It is a land of fire, earth, air and water, a land where you can touch the elemental forces that make up the world in which you live.
