Intergenerational Workshop. Sakwasiwviqaviki.
Ten Hopi women and girls gathered together on June 24, 2017 to share the art of making sakwasiwviqaviki and to practice Hopilavayi. This Hopi food is a blue corn onion tortilla that is often served with beans. Kwangwa! Yummy! The ingredients are blue corn flour, baking powder, milk, eggs and chopped onion. Joannie Takala shared her recipe and Loretta Goldtooth hosted the gathering at her house. Askwali!The ladies shared lunch and talked in Hopi the whole day. Uni! Through the generous support of the Food Farm Communications Fund, Mesa Media was able to sponsor this event to bring together the generations. Oral transmission of Hopi food traditions perpetuates the age-old practice maintained by Hopi people for centuries. Askwali to all who participated, hosted, shared and documented.
