“We are Earth people, born from our Mother.” Isleta design elements show life’s beginning in a diptych fresco by Deborah Jojola of New Mexico’s Jemez Pueblo. Life grows from Earth, rising through clouds that lift it to the surface in a flower-like. A central bloom releases seeds, scattered by wind. Arrows symbolize sovereignty, the Creatorgiven instructions on how to care for the earth and all its beings. Curvilinear elements show life as a spiral with purpose beyond this world.
