Sacred Rok’s new T-Shirt and Video
Unifying Spirit – Honoring Indigenous - watch now
We are excited to share our newest T-Shirt with you. The Yosemite Bear was done by renown Yosemite Artist, Penny Otwell and we are very honored to be able to feature her work on our shirts.
The inspiration for this shirt came from this video: Unifying Spirit – Honoring Indigenous
Sacred Rok continues to be committed to understand what it means to be a human being in the 21st century. In the collaboration with the indigenous reality of the First Nations people of Yosemite we are sharing this message together. Yosemite is recognized as a World Heritage Site and has always been the responsibility of the American Indian People to be caretakers.
In this video the voices of those who understand this responsibility can be heard.

A minimum of a $50 contribution will send a youth to Yosemite for a day with Ron; an event that can be life changing. In return we will send you this Indigenous inspired, Sacred Yosemite Bear tee (Adult sizes S, M, L, XL).

Yosemite News Release
We have been awarded a $10,000 grant from The North Face #ExploreFund. With this funding we will continue our mission of bring our youth into nature to experience it for themselves while providing a nurturing environment of good food, good water and an understanding of how to move within the outdoors in a respectful and good way.
Education Nature’s Way
Sitting by a river, hiking, camping, learning to climb a rock. Many young people do not have the opportunity to experience nature during their everyday lives. We are concerned that so many youth have lost touch with nature. Experience with nature serves as a source of energy for youth to discover their potential, to explore themselves, to develop relationships with caring adults, and to learn to mentor other youth. The potential of so many young people is lost because our social institutions are not responsive to these instinctive needs. We emphasize the basics by bringing attention and conscious awareness to water, food and other essential needs thus helping them to develop an appreciation for our basic needs as humans and put more value and reality into that.
Sacred Rok provides the chance for small groups of young people between the ages of 14 and 21 to get to know the natural beauty of Yosemite National Park. To find out more, check out our activities.
