HEEF Silent Auction Sponsorship Opportunities
The HEEF Silent Auction is a great opportunity to support Native American Students and promote your business or organization! We have several sponsorship options available to fit your budget and promotional efforts.
We view support from outside entities as vital to our work in supporting our Hopi children in their educational efforts. The clouds are also an essential part of Hopi life. Hopi farmers pray constantly for the arrival of clouds, as they are the bringers of rain that create moisture in the earth in order for the growth of crops such as corn, beans, squash, and melons. Clouds are identified by their color and are associated with each of the six cardinal directions.
