Breaking Sacred Ground: The Confluence, and Disruption of the Balance of Origin Sites

The Four Corners region of the United States is too mediocre a name to describe so vast an expanse of the Southwest, representing the corners of Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico. The extraordinary canyons and red-rock landscapes took millions of years to create; for spectacular beauty and grandeur, the Southwest’s stunning scenery defies categorization, and is unlike any other place on the planet.

On a remote edge of the Navajo Reservation in Arizona, the cragged rim of the Grand Canyon plunges thousands of feet to a place at the bottom, where the Colorado and Little Colorado rivers meet. The spectacle of the canyon from this vantage point is too immense to take in at first glance; it’s a sight where the phrase “once seen, never forgotten,” may have very well been first said.

This place is called the Confluence.
