Winslow, Arizona

Friday, September 2nd – Sunday, September 11th

Just a few miles outside of Winslow Arizona sits scenic Clear Creek, McHood Reservoir Park, and "The RockPile Amphitheatre". On September 2nd through the 11th a most unique event will take place, the Clear Creek Festival for Peace and Freedom. What began as a 4-day festival has grown into a 10-day historic event. Gateway to the reservation lands, Winslow, has opened a door for a multi-cultural festival that includes the small towns of the area and the Hopi, and Dine’ (Navajo) Tribes.

Musicians and artists from all over the country are on board for this project. The event will be broadcast on Peace Day TV, the United Nations International Day of Peace Global Broadcast. The events will engage numerous collaborators and partners from around country, to reach a combined audience base of 200 million viewers.

The Hopi are creating a powerful presence for this festival. Renowned Hopi artist, Anthony Honahnie is working on the festival poster and the t-shirt design. The local dance group will be dancing, not only at the opening ceremony, but daily. Opening day will include the blessing from a Hopi Tuhikya, or Medicine Person and musicians from the mesas will be coming to play.

From the Dine’, or Navajo, likewise, we are receiving an incredible influx. Bands and artists are coming to share their talents with the world. A Medicine Man will be coming in to add their blessings to the event, at the opening ceremony.

The art of Northeastern Arizona will be well represented during the festival and some inspiring and truly unique art and jewelry will be on display and available for purchase. Here in the high country there is probably more world-class art per capita than anywhere else on the planet.

The RockPile Amphitheatre & Promotions, along with the Clear Creek Association for the Arts, Inc. (a not for profit) are working together to bring this event to the world. It promises to be an unparalleled event of music, art and peace. For all interested parties contact information is (928) 386-2372, The RockPile Amphitheater, P.O. Box 640, Winslow, AZ 86047, or email us at doug@rockpileamphitheater.com or visit our website http://rockpileamphitheater.com/index.html for ticket sales. We welcome your participation.

FREEDOM

Freedom!
What is it?

Freedom from—
freedom from nothingness
even though we are always
facing into death,
freedom from fear of nothingness
and freedom
from the shadows of that fear,
too often cast by the will to power
of some
over the vulnerabilities
of others.

Freedom to—
to discover and explore
with recognition and respect,
to live in a uniqueness
of sovereignty
a life which is
simultaneously an earth-walk-light in
balance, in the spectrum-integrity
of many relationships
and to give breath and form,
shape and voice,
content and motion
to the poetry of the soul.

Freedom! Freedom!
Who has this
sacred wealth?

On a planet where
the seeds at the core of creation
are betrayed;
on a planet of
slavery;
on a planet
of drudgery;
on a planet of
madness and war?

Who, my darling, my
beloved,
out among the many
dreamless, burdened and broken
dares to be free?

Doug - Your invitation does tweak a string or two of yearning.  But unfortunately, we won't be back there [in the states] probably never again. I was, however, intrigued that Hopi will be joining you.  I hold them in the greatest esteem and rely upon the deeply resonant message of a couple of the elders to convey the dimension of the present day crisis on our website. I have also toyed with the idea of changing our name to EdenHopi, so moved am I by their connection....  So I hope you will share my wishes that they become aware of our Project in this far-off wilderness ....since it also honors them.It would be a greatly appreciated service to us.

Best wishes for your peaceful efforts ,

Steve
