Out of the mouths of babes, the Bible says, comes more wisdom than we often expect.

In this case, the “babe” is a woman full grown that I only see as a baby, still. To me she will always be the little girl I met not long after I first set foot on the Hopi reservation, where I would become fast friends with and then ceremonially adopted a “sister” to her remarkable mother.

​Our Human Family celebrates the inherent value of all human beings by fostering conversations on racial equity, allyship, inclusion, antiracism, and equality.
