Justin Secakuku is a member of the Hopi Tribe of Arizona and lives in the village of Shugopavi. On camera, Justin shares the Hopi view of white corn, known as the corn mother, and likens it to the value of women in Native communities to give and produce life. Justin was interviewed as a part of a joint project of the Indian Law Resource Center and the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center to define Native love. To help restore safety to Native communities, the project is raising awareness about violence against Native women and empowering Native people to speak out about traditional cultural values that honor and respect Native women.
