The American West suffers through one of the most intense droughts in recorded human history. As water levels plummet and life as we know it is threatened by this existential crisis, we look back in time to a story about a Hopi boy named Tiyo, and a journey he made along the Colorado River under similar circumstances.

In a modern world where we've lost our intimate connection to water, the ultimate source and provider of life for all living things, perhaps what we need is a reminder of the power and potential of our world's most important element.
