We were both so busy over Memorial Day weekend at different cemeteries and with our families that we did not have time to finish our research for the planned episode this week. However, we have a very special return guest with a fascinating story joining us next week and we will be able to return to our regularly scheduled program! We humbly apologize and we thank you for sticking with us on all of our Ordinary Extraordinary Cemetery journeys. Until we meet again!

Episode 60 - Indigenous Peoples of the American Southwest and their Burial Traditions

November is National Native American Heritage Month so in this episode Jennie and Dianne learn about the death and burial traditions of the Ordinary Extraordinary Hopi, Navajo and Apache nations of the American Southwest. They end the episode by sharing the Hopi story of The Land of the Dead. -  "The young man said, "I did not believe that there was such a place as this. I thought, 'When a man dies, his spirit surely dies with him and lies with his body in the grave.' Now I understand how things are."
