In the 1600s, as European settlement grew and expanded, many of the Shamans and Tacticians of the Americas realized that the threat from these new people was larger than anyone had anticipated. A large conclave was assembled in what would later become the Southwestern United States, hosted by the Hopi and their neighbors. It was the largest meeting of its type to that point, and possibly of all time. Medicine people, shamans, and wizards all the way from modern-day Canada and Alaska to the tip of South America met, either in person or via avatar, spirit-self, or messenger animal, to discuss the threat. In the end, an intertribal coalition was formed for the mutual defense of all indigenous peoples against colonists and imperialists. In deference to its Hopi host, its official name was in their language, “Suukya' Taawa,” meaning “One Sun.” This name was chosen to represent the unity of all of the different tribes in this goal, regardless of whatever other disagreements or strife they might have. Naturally, local names for the organization have occurred in different regions and tribes, but all remember to recognize Suukya' Taawa.

Relation with Other TraditionsEdit

Members of Suukya' Taawa are often on friendly terms with the Followers of Narasimha, as both groups have a similar devotion to defense against outside threats. The Sentinels are less interested in Suukya' Taawa's fights with mortal foes, however, and in turn, Suukya' Taawa sometimes takes issues with the more zealous and rigid members (and methods) of the Followers of Narasimha. Their relationship with the Banister School is complex - both groups have a vested interest in preserving indigenous sites against destruction from urbanization or agriculture, but many of the Banisterites' activities are viewed as grave descration by Suukya' Taawa.
