Augustine is a gentleman and a fine man in every sense. He is a husband, a father, a grandfather, and a keeper of the
culture and the tradition. He is a philosopher, a story teller, and a teacher. When we asked Augustine for his thoughts, what he wanted to say on this page, he paused for a moment and said he would give
us something the following day. As typical of Augustine, rather than a personal biography, he has provided us a glimpse into the spirit of Hopi.
