SHIMA' of Navajoland is the umbrella name for our agricultural businesses: natural soap using local herbs, honey from our pastures and blue corn products from our fields. All of these projects offer volunteer opportunities for community members and mission groups too. And Shima' means mother - our mother, our mother earth. We chose the name to show that we are working to preserve our beautiful earth and our natural resources, especially our water.
The first part of the slide show shows our soap-making activities in the Power House. Young and old alike gather for the fun. Kids show up everywhere! After school, during the summer, and on weekends too. They help harvest the plants and pinion and help to cut and wrap the finished soap. We think they are our upcoming leaders in the soapmaking business! Come and help!
