A short Video of Still pictures taken on my trip to meet and perform the sacred fire ceremonies in honor of the spring equinox and other events, many people like the man pictured in the main frame came from very far away, to participate in the predawn sunrise ceremony with other Elders and leaders from other tribes and other traditions.
All of these people converged at this one pyramid complex and had to get special passes to attend and be in the national park, which is over an hour drive over dirt roads and jungle paths, until the small village of Uaxucton is reached.
For at least 1200 years the pyramid complex - known as the Temple of the Masks, was created to mark the passage of the sun through one of three gates, with each gate marking the winter, sumer and spring and fall equinox, when the sun appears to "stand still," in its journey from north to south as the earth's face is tilted and we revolve around the sun.
Since this was March 21, 2011, just a week or two after the Fukashima disaster, our thoughts and prayers were on the earth and saving it from the total destruction which we are doing it on a daily basis…
