Omega: The Evening is Closed by Alberta Nells

Alberta Nells, a youth leader of the Navajo Nation, does the final closing for the evening. At 19-years-old, she is the youngest member of the faculty here at Omega.
She says that she thought it would be most appropriate to do a journey song. The song, she explains, begins with a prayer for “good planning,” which corresponds with all the community organizers in the house. She promises that rain is a good sign: “For us, that mist and that fog means that our holy people, our deities are among us.”
“You’re not closing the ceremony because the ceremony will never be closed. The blessings will never stop.”
