While in Peru I worked with Edwin Sulca an weaver from the mountainous region of Ayacucho, Peru. This was the birthplace of the terrorist group the Sendero Luminoso. Sulca quietly wove into tapestries the story of the civil war for ten years. This weaving, I wish to Be Like the Wind, expresses his desire for peace and freedom during those tumultuous times.

Since the peace , Sulca has been exhibiting not only in his own country, but throughout Latin America.  In the various places in the United States, including  one on War and Peace at  The Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, MD.  He was one of the few artists who chose to be a voice for Peace, rather than the horrors of War.

When I returned to the United States I taught at an international high school in Arizona.  I received an Arizona Heritage Grant to teach students multimedia. We created a DVD about the Sinagua, Native American legacy in Northern Arizona.  This DVD is now archived at the American Folklife Museum at the United States Library of Congress.
