A Sacred Place

Tidal Estuary

I don’t think we are very good at identifying sacred places. We certainly don’t talk about it much. Not certain we have a handle on all the criteria that go into identifying a sacred place, particularly a landscape. This from Google: “Sacred sites are important to the cultural fabric and heritage of the Northern Territory. […] They anchor cultural values and spiritual and kin-based relationships in the land. Aboriginal people know that sacred sites can be dangerous places and can play an important part in their health and well-being.”

Owl’s Head is a sacred place, a power place as the Yaqui would say. You may ask, “How do I know this?” My reply, “How do you not?”

Stop the sale. Save Owl’s Head.
