The story of Lying Down Mountaincontinues the story of White Buffalo woman and her journey through the land of the Lying Down Mountain, the land of the Hopi Nation. Heyoka Merrifield was born into a culture that, for him, had no functioning mythology. He has since wandered the earth and searched throughout history to find myths to guide his life. Sitting in ceremony with tribal peoples in North America, Africa, Europe, Asia and South America, Heyoka opened himself to the stories that felt good in his heart. The stories of the Hopi people resonated deeply within, so he wrote Lying Down Mountainfrom his own imaginings of how life might have been thousands of years ago. The Hopi, whose name means Peaceful, still live in the oldest inhabited village in the United States. Their mythology is of great importance and holds wisdom that will help our children's children continue to walk on this Mother Earth.
