Though sacred mountains may be visible, it is
the invisible realm that holds the key to
understanding the sites Native Americans hold
most precious. Their songs and stories, visions
and prophecies, secret traditions passed down
from the ancestors—these are the intangible
cultural practices that honor the life force of the
land and carry deep emotional power for the
communities that inhabit and protect America’s
sacred places.
