 Sacred Site: Restoration and Maintenance Project (Northern Arizona)

Project name: Traditional Ceremonial Building Repair
Project number: CE005
Location: Northern Arizona
Summary: The aim of this project is to ensure the safety of ancient cultural artifacts and the people that care for, and use them. The sacred site/building that holds ceremonial significance for a nation of people is structurally compromised and must be rebuilt as soon as possible. There is a dangerous rick that one of the walls of this building, that is hundreds of years old, may cave in putting ceremonial artifacts and lives at risk.

How many people will this project supports?
This project will affect up to 1,500 directly and up to 15,000 people  indirectly both today as well as future generations.

The issue
Safety is the priority of this project. The safety for the people that enter the building and protecting the items housed there. It will also ensure continued protection and preservation of a culture that is thousands of years old.

The solution
This building is currently at risk of one of the walls caving in. Once the building is made structurally sound, maintenance will become much easier and the safety of sacred items will be ensured.

Potential long term impact
The ancient culture of traditional people that is thousands of years old will be protected. Enabling their ceremonies and way of life to be protected and continue through culture, ceremonies, language and way of life.

Volunteers needed
Due to the sensitive cultural and sacred nature of this project, it will be supported in part by volunteers who are responsible for the care and protection of this sacred space within the culture itself. If there is a need for expert advisors or experts in a specific area we will announce this as it is determined.
