UNM Tribute to Mother Earth
New Mexico


My grandmother was a farmer who worked not only with the EARTH, but with many things which EARTH provides for our use. She was the weaver of our clothing, and she created many other wonderful objects. She revealed to us the meaning of life, and taught us how to live. Most of all, she nourished and healed our minds and our bodies, our hearts and our souls.

Toward the end of 1990 certain signs appeared to me in a dream which indicated that her days upon this earth were drawing swiftly to an end. She passed away on January 12th, 1991. In many cultures it is customary to hold an important ceremony one year following the death of a loved one. I helped my mother return to Korea to participate in that ceremony.

I decided to build a very special shrine to honor all grandmothers, and especially our Mother Earth who nourishes us always even though we may mistreat or ignore her. I dedicated the shrine on January 12th, 1992, the anniversary of my own grandmother's death, in honor of Mother Earth, in hope that we humans, together with all the other creatures of the marvelous Nature which surrounds us, who with us are all children of the Creator, may flourish in universal harmony and joy.

More About New Mexico

New Mexico is a state located in the southwestern region of the United States. Inhabited by Native American populations for many centuries, it has also been part of the Imperial Spanish viceroyalty of New Spain, part of Mexico, and a U.S. territory. Among U.S. states, New Mexico has the highest percentage of Hispanics at 45% (2008 estimate), being descendants of Spanish colonists and recent immigrants from Latin America. It also has the third-highest percentage of Native Americans after Alaska and Oklahoma, and the fifth-highest total number of Native Americans after California, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Texas. The tribes represented in the state consist of mostly Navajo and Pueblo peoples. As a result, the demographics and culture of the state are unique for their strong Spanish, Mexican, and Native American cultural influences. At a population density of 16 per square mile, New Mexico is the sixth most sparsely inhabited U.S. state.[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_mexico]
