About our logo.  Created in 1977 as a donation by graphic artist, Terry Lamb.  At the center is the ancient Hopi Kachina, Tawa.  Kachinas represented nature spirits to the Hopi.  Hopi were considered the keepers of prophecy to Native Americans.  Hopi means peaceful people and they were one of the only tribes that never took up arms against white settlers or soldiers.  According to Hopi prophecy, a day would come when  the Bohana (White Brothers and Sisters) would return to the center of the Universe they considered to be the Four Corners area in the American Southwest.  In the hands of the image of Bohana are Tawa and the Maha.  There have been countless interpretations of the meaning of these two symbols.  Let me add mine; that Tawa represents solar and the Maha represents wind energy.  So the TAWA logo represents the most ancient of Americans and the future of Americans.
