About the CD

The 54-minute CD features nine songs recorded inside the Desert View Watchtower on October 17, 2017. All songs were recorded on the first take, and no studio enhancements have been added. Every sound captured on the recording represents the raw, organic sounds of Clark Tenakhongva’s Hopi vocals, Gary Stroutsos’ evocative flute, and Matthew Nelson’s sensitive clay pot percussion. The natural acoustics of the Watchtower’s Kiva Room and second floor are what give the recording its power and authenticity. Listen to sample tracks here.

About the DVD

The 50-minute DVD features dramatic footage from Grand Canyon, powerful messages from Clark Tenakhongva about Hopi cultural connections to Grand Canyon, and complete songs recorded inside Desert View Watchtower. The DVD is included as a companion to the audio CD and is not sold separately.


Thanks to Dean Neasham, Engineer/Owner of TDT Productions, for expertly capturing the sounds inside the Watchtower, and to Levi Davis/AZ Camera for his outstanding work in the video production of Ongtupqa.
