Saga of the Spider Clan Story Three – Taavo, Judgement By Fire

In this installment of Saga of the Spider Clan old Honaw tells the children the story of the village of Taavo. Three clans lived in Taavo: The Spider, Rabbit and Water Clans. The Spider Clan followed the teachings of Sun Father and lived a good and balanced life. The Rabbit and Water Clans allowed greed and pleasure to lead them down the path of evil. They paid dearly for their sins. The Spider Clan fled Taavo before the wrath of Sun Father descended upon the village, but the resulting conflagration threatened to overtake them. Once again Spider Grandmother stepped in to save her children.

Kingdom of White House (KWH)Newsletter Special Edition

Kingdom of White House Newsletter (KWH) Special Edition – House of the Sun Center of the Universe.

In this special edition the Storyteller describes how the Ancestral Pueblos used years of celestial observation and precise calculations to design and construct walls at House of the Sun (Pueblo Bonito, Chaco Canyon, NM) that marked the Spring and Autumnal Equinox. The wall that runs north/south through the plaza marks mid-day each day.

House of The Sun (Pueblo Bonito) Notice the north/south wall running through the center of the plaza. The front wall runs east/west and faces south.
