The pueblo’s elders called a council to decide what to do about the federal government’s proposal for a land trade involving mineral rights. A fire burned at the center of the kiva’s dirt floor, around which the twelve elders gathered. A traditional reflection stone sat on the open side of the fire, opposite the sipapu, which signified the opening in the earth through which the first people arrived from the unseen worlds. A ledge cut into the curved adobe wall held pots, drums, and bundles of dried corn.
