Watson uses corn meal during an autumn blessing in his fields. Watson gives thanks for their harvest and prays for a wet winter. “In Hopi we only pray for good longevity, good long life, and a healthy one also. That is what we pray for. We also pray a lot for rain, for without water nothing will exist. Plants grow with water, and we have to have water to live on. Its just that.... good living, prosperity, good health, longevity, no sickness.... that’s just the Hopi way,” Watson said.
