St. James Students Look Through “God’s Eye”

May 21, 2012 - Using an ancient tradition originating from Mexico, the Grade 5/6 French Immersion class at St. James Catholic School wove yarn around two sticks glued in the shape of a cross to create a “Sikuli”--"God's Eye". This tradition of the Huicholl Indians of Mexico is based on the belief that the person that "God's Eye" was created for, will be more knowledgeable to the ways of Jesus and wiser. According to the belief, the father creates a Sikuli (God's Eye) for their newborn and continues to add a length of yarn to the Sikuli on the child's birthday until the child is 5 years old.
