Rugby World Cup 2011: Italy’s story

first_img 1987: Italy v New Zealand during their World Cup debut in Auckland. They lost 70-6The Italians are World Cup ever-presents but have never made the quarter-finals. Here’s their journeyItaly’s World Cup experience started with a bang – an All Black bang that blew them to bits 70-6. It was Auckland 1987, the tournament opener, and the Italians were up against a New Zealand side determined to show their fans they meant business. It was an All Black side crammed full of world-class players – grizzled stars such as Gary Whetton and John Kirwan and others, like Sean Fitzpatrick, John Gallagher and Michael Jones, who were just beginning to blossom into the greats that they would later become.The All Blacks scored 12 tries, one of them a World Cup classic, as Kirwan ran the ball out of his 22 and swerved and skipped his way past seven Italians on his way to the try-line. As one newspaper said the next day, it was a “hopelessly one-sided contest… fun but farcical” Italy lost their next match to Argentina 25-16 but triumphed in their third, scoring three tries against a strong Fiji side that later gave France a run for their money in the quarter-final.In the 1991 tournament Italy got off to a flyer with a 30-9 thrashing of the USA at Otley in West Yorkshire. Italy’s four tries were converted by a devilishly handsome, not to mention handy, fly-half called Diego Dominguez, playing in only his fifth Test. He would go on to appear in every one of Italy’s matches in the next three World Cups, scoring 98 points in nine appearances.1999: The final score between New Zealand and ItalyAlas, Italy’s second game in the 1991 World Cup wasn’t a collector’s item, unless one was a collector of all things awful. England won on points – 36-10 – but Italy won on penalties, conceding 37 to their opponents’ ten. England No 8 Dean Richards accused the Italians of cheating (oh, the irony, Deano!) because of their persistent infringing and the Azzurri left Twickenham having won few friends.That all changed a few days later in front of a riveted 16,000 at Welford Road. The Guardian described Italy’s match against New Zealand as a “thrilling encounter” and that it was, as the All Blacks were hit hard and low, time and again, by an Italian XV still seething at the memory of their encounter four years earlier. New Zealand eventually struggled free to win 31-21 but the Italians trooped off to a standing ovation having salvaged their reputation.Italy arrived in South Africa in 1995 with a spring in their Latin step. They’d beaten Ireland in their World Cup warm-up and fancied themselves first up against Samoa. But this was a Samoan team with a swagger of its own and they hammered Italy 42-18.Italy recovered for their clash with England, a match in which both sides scored two tries and only the boot of Rob Andrew edged the English home 27-20. Though they went on to beat Argentina in their third pool match, Italy returned home knowing that against Samoa they had blown their chance of reaching the knockout phase.Blown away was what happened to Italy in 1999, a tournament that is best passed over in one brief paragraph. A team that was talented but ageing simply had no answer to the power of England (67-7) and New Zealand (101-3), nor even Tonga, who sneaked through 28-25 thanks to a delicious drop-goal from Sateki Tuipulotu.2007: Alessandro Troncon scoring the only try of the game against ScotlandBy the time of the 2003 World Cup Italy had four seasons of Six Nations rugby under their belt, and it showed as they swept aside Tonga 36-12 and wrestled their way past Canada. Having lost to New Zealand in their opening pool game, Italy needed to beat Wales to reach their first quarter-final but in the end their lack of experience let them down and the Welsh won 27-15. Young guns like Sergio Parisse, Gonzalo Canale and Martin Castrogiovanni were undone by the wily ways of campaigners like Colin Charvis and Gareth Thomas.

Having begun with another spanking by the All Blacks (76-14 at their fifth meeting in six World Cups), Italy saw off Romania and Portugal to set up a do-or-die clash with the Scots. The prize was a quarter-final against Argentina.Six months earlier in Edinburgh Italy had humiliated Scotland in the Six Nations, running in four tries in a 37-17 romp. Parisse, Canale and Castrogiovanni were now a triumvirate of veterans while the side also featured the Bergamasco brothers, not to mention the ageless Alessandro Troncon at scrum-half.It was far from a classic but it was strangely gripping nonetheless, a game played in heavy rain with few clear-cut chances for either side. Troncon scored the only try of the game but in Chris Paterson the Scots had the match-winner. His six penalties sneaked Scotland home 18-16 leaving the Italians once again to reflect on the error of their ways. “We worked hard but didn’t win,” said Troncon. “We did all that we could but made some mistakes.”Six World Cups and no place in a knockout phase is Italy’s tournament record, and with Australia and Ireland in their group this time around, the Azzurri must produce their best-ever tournament form if they are to give themselves a chance of finally making it through to the quarter-finals.Italy’s World Cup record                         Italy in numbers1987 Pool stage                                        IRB world ranking 12th1991 Pool stage                                        Clubs 7841995 Pool stage                                        Registered players 66,1761999 Pool stage                                        Senior male players 15,8482003 Pool stage                                        Referees 8572007 Pool stageThis article appeared in Part 1 of our Rugby World Cup Supplement.To get a copy of the supplement contact [email protected] LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

The Clubhouse Podcast: The first round of the Six Nations

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSSkip AdAds by Scotland are also on the agenda after their narrow 15-8 loss to France. We talk to Stuart Hogg about his fine, attacking game and we look at what their style of play could spell for the rest of the tournament. France? Well the editor considers their eating habits…And for good measure we offer up some predictions for the next round of the Six Nations, because even though we were pretty awful at predicting the last round we shouldn’t be discouraged from being wrong twice! The second ever Clubhouse Podcast is here and it’s looking back through the first week of the Six Nations and all of the drama and incident.We talk through the opener at the Millennium Stadium, as England defeated Wales 21-16. Yeah, that means all the incidents, from the fracas in the tunnel before the anthems, the play itself as the English upped the pace in the second half and the aftermath of the George North knocks. We also talk to Anthony Watson about theirWe move on to Ireland and their 26-3 win over Italy. It wasn’t pretty but we assess what can be learned from their performance and what changes must come in.

Parisse out of Italy World Cup finale

first_imgNot only is qualification for the next tournament on the line, but calls for the inclusion of Georgia and Romania in the Six Nations will only increase if the Oaks pull off an upset.With the likes of Parisse, Castro and Masi all missing, not to mention vice-captain Leonardo Ghiraldini, it will be up to the younger generation to prove that the future is bright for Italian rugby. Big miss: Italy talisman Sergio Parisse is injured One of the biggest disappointments of the World Cup will be that Italy star Sergio Parisse managed just 64 minutes during the Azzurri’s Pool D campaign.It’s no coincidence that Jacques Brunel’s side played their best rugby with their inspirational skipper leading them, narrowly going down 16-9 against Ireland last Sunday.Parisse had returned to the team after missing the first two games of the tournament with a calf problem, and that hour took so much out of him that he has had to withdraw from Italy’s final game against Romania on Sunday.It rounds off a rough World Cup for Italy and in particular their veteran players, with a generation of key players bidding a less than fond farewell to the tournament.Mauro Bergamasco was left out by Jacques Brunel. Photo: Getty Images.Parisse could yet make the next World Cup in Japan, he’ll be 36 in 2019, but the likes of Mauro Bergamasco and Andrea Masi have played their last games on the world’s biggest stage.The flanker was left out of the matchday squad to face Romania, and while he did take part in a record-equalling fifth tournament, he probably hoped for more than two substitute appearances.Masi’s tournament was even tougher, rupturing his Achilles tendon in the opening minutes of the first game against France. Now 34, it seems impossible that he will still be going in four years’ time, and his experience was sorely missed in a very green backline. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img All absent: Sergio Parisse, Martin Castrogiovanni and Andrea Masi. Photo: Getty Images.Martin Castrogiovanni is another to have left the tournament early, as he gets treatment for a tumour in his back, thankfully benign according to his doctors.With Parisse missing, Italy will have to do something they’ve managed just three times in the last five years, and win a match without him.The last time they managed it was in their difficult win over Canada earlier in the pool stages, while in 2012, they saw off the Canadians and the USA on a tour to North America.Romania should provide a similar challenge, having just about seen off Canada in their pool meeting on Tuesday, but will have to deal with a quick turnaround.That might be enough for Italy to avoid what would be a disastrous loss, condemning them to fourth place in the pool.

Rugby’s new tackle laws confusing coaches at all levels

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Richard Cockerill, the director of rugby at Leicester, has been around the block a bit, and most things that rugby throws up would not surprise him, but even he is a bit flummoxed by the new tackle regulations.Cockerill knows his rugby – he played 27 times for England as a hooker, about 250 games for Leicester as a member of the famed ABC Club and played in France before coaching for the last 11 years. Even he does not really know what is going on, so what chance the rest of us?The new laws which totally outlaw contact with an opponent’s head do not actually come into force until 3 January but, in the last two rounds of European games, officials have employed an iron fist policy on high tackles and swinging arms.The new regulations say a tackle will be ruled reckless if the tackler knew, or should have known, there was a chance of making contact with the head and it happened anyway. Well, it is happening already.Zero tolerance: Dylan Hartley was given 6 weeks – many feel it should have been longerCockerill for one will be seeking guidance from the authorities as to what is actually high tackle but some people are forecasting game ending in 12 or 13 a side in the New Year. Penalties are turning into yellow cards and yellow cards are turning into red – all club bosses want is to know where they stand. I know it’s Christmas but the flood of cards is getting ridiculous and these bloke’s jobs are on the line.The grim statistics show us that over the last fortnight, in Europe Champions and Challenge Cup games, nine players have seen red and a staggering 51 yellow cards have been shown. The European Professional Club Rugby disciplinary bods have been putting in some shift and their emails are now more regular than ones telling you that you have $10million dollars sitting in a Nigerian bank account as the latest player gets a couple of weeks off.Cockerill saw Manu Tuilagi sin-binned, for the second week running, for a late and highish challenge against Munster and then watched the Sale match against Saracens on Sunday night on the box.Debatable decision: Manu Tuilagi was shown yellow for a high tackle against MunsterThat game produced three yellow cards for the home side including one for TJ Ioane for not wrapping his arms round in a challenge.That led to Steve Diamond, the Sale boss, predicting touch rugby in the future and his Saracens counterpart Mark McCall is completely befuddled by the way the game is changing week by week.And Dai Young was equally confused by the yellow Kurtley Beale got in his first game for Wasps, against Connacht.Cockerill thought Ioane got a bad break.“It will be interesting to see the exact guidelines,” he said. “I watched Sale v Saracens and I thought it was a really good tackle. He has hit with his shoulder and it was a chest tackle.“I am not sure what you can do. Accidents do happen. I understand you don’t want people swinging arms to peoples’ heads – I get that – concussion is serious issue in the game.Welcome to England: Dai Young was perplexed over Kurtley Beale’s yellow against Connacht“It is just the interpretation of it. What is a tackle? If someone commits themselves and a player dips their head at the last moment. Tackle lottery: New tackle laws are seeing a rash of cards being brandished “There will be a lot of incidents where guys will be in the bin or sent off where it is probably a bit harsh but by the letter of the law that is what they (the referees) are being asked to do.“What they are concerned about is people swinging their arms and hitting. We see a lot of penalties these days for high tackles and it is just a scrag really.“It is just hard. When those big guys hit you they hit you with their shoulder and their arm can’t catch up.  If it is hitting in the body like the lad from Sale – I thought it was a justifiable tackle.”Plenty to ponder: As an ex player, Richard Cockerill is confused by the new lawsTalk to any rugby coach nowadays, and most of them have played a bit, about they are very guarded about their words. No-one wants to say the game has gone soft, Diamond said the opposite because the players have got bigger, and no-one wants to come across as a ‘back in my day’ merchant.Concussion is massive news, just look at the furore kicked up by the George North case, but the game is changing in front of our faces and it is doing it a rate of knots.There are million dollar law suits going on in the United States concerning former NFL players who have been concussed and suffered ill health. So referees have to ref to the letter of the law.“I think everybody should ask for some really clear direction on what is a tackle and what is a head shot,” added Cockerill. “If you hit them really hard in the chest and they get whiplash is that a dangerous tackle because he got hit hard?Test case: The reaction to George North’s concussion has raised multiple issues“There are going to be some big people hitting some little people – that is the game.“We will chew the fat about it no-one will really know and we will get on with the game.“We will look at it. We encourage our players to tackle low and the second man to slow the ball down. It is a very direct game – accidents are going to happen.“Europe has been refereed differently. The game we are in you can’t bump a player with your shoulder 1/100th of a second after the ball goes – you can’t tackle someone a fraction of a second late because you go to the bin. It just seems to be the way of the world. Directors of rugby around the Premiership are confused about the incoming tackle laws and how they are going to be refereed “Across the board the interpretation, of what a tackle is, is certainly going to be interesting in the New Year.”You are not wrong there Cockers and when you find out what is and isn’t a bad tackle – can you let us know?

Scotland beat France in Paris for first time in 22 years

Penaud launched another attack from his own line in the 54th minute that saw Gael Fickou take play to the Scotland 22 but the visitors secured possession following a Dupont chip, were awarded a penalty and took play deep into the French half.Sam Johnson got close to scoring from a set lineout move but he was brought down a few metres from the posts. France then conceded a series of penalties and Scotland opted for a series of five-metre lineouts, which led to another David Cherry try.The hooker scored twice against Italy and crossed again in Paris. Scotland won ball at the back of the lineout, set the maul and as Swan Rebbadj ripped the ball it fell perfectly for Cherry, who darted over. Russell’s conversion gave Scotland a two-point lead.Hooker George Turner roars his approval as Scotland open up an early lead at Stade de France (inpho)Rebbadj was quick to make amends, finding a big gap to dive over from close range following a couple of lineouts close to the Scottish line. Ntamack missed the conversion, making it 23-20 going into the last 15 minutes.Scotland came again and opted for more lineouts rather than a kick at goal that would have drawn the scores level. It was to no avail as Russell was sent off in the 71st minute for leading with the forearm to the neck of tackler Dulin – the fifth red card in this year’s Six Nations.It was 14 men v 14 men for the closing minutes, however, as France’s penalty count grew too high and Baptiste Serin was the one shown yellow.Penalties were awarded this way and that as the match drew to a close, but it was the Scots who took the most advantage – kicking into France’s 22 and launching from their lineout once more. They showed great patience to go through more than 20 phases to eventually create the space for van der Merwe to cross out wide. Adam Hastings added the final flourish with a conversion to leave Scots and Welsh united in delight. Despite their historic win, Scotland finish fourth in the table and dejected France take the runners-up spot behind the Welsh. Scotland’s kicking game – and France’s attempts to run the ball out of their 22 – kept the hosts pinned in their own half for much of the first half-hour, but then momentum swung les Bleus’ way.The Scots conceded a succession of penalties and the pressure eventually told from a five-metre scrum. Gregory Alldritt broke from the back and fed Antoine Dupont, who sent a huge pass out to Damian Penaud. The wing stepped infield and offloaded to Brice Dulin to score in the corner. Romain Ntamack converted from the touchline to make it 13-10.Brice Dulin scores for France just before half-time after being put in by Damian Penaud, right (Inpho)Things got worse for Scotland before the half-time whistle when Stuart Hogg was sin-binned, a victim of repeated infringements by his team. From that penalty, Ntamack kicked to the corner but Nick Haining made a crucial intervention to steal the lineout.France got their second try early soon after the break – and it was a beauty. Dulin marked a kick in the French 22, then tapped and ran. Next came Ntamack and then Arthur Vincent, which took play to halfway.Virimi Vakatawa took the move on and produced a sublime offload to Penaud, who chipped ahead and touched down his own kick despite being felled by Ali Price. Barnes was due to award a penalty try for an off-the-ball tackle by Price had Penaud not already scored the try.

Rev. David Bailey, Deacon Catherine Plummer and Arnold Joe, an aspirant, holding hands in prayer during a November visit to the Bosque Redondo Memorial at Fort Sumner State Monument in New Mexico. ENS Photo/Lynette Wilson[Episcopal News Service]  Some of them died of broken hearts.While Union and Confederate soldiers waged war primarily over perpetuating slavery in the South, a lesser-known tragedy took place in the western territories of New Mexico and Arizona: In what became known as the “Long Walk,” Union soldiers marched thousands of Navajo from their ancestral homeland in the Four Corners region to an internment camp hundreds of miles southeast in Fort Sumner.The knowledge that thousands of Navajo suffered the trek, four years’ internment and in some cases death so that U.S. government prospectors might look for gold and silver to finance the Civil War represented a sort of “hitting bottom” for the Navajo who visited the Bosque Redondo Memorial at Fort Sumner as part of their theological training in the Navajoland Area Mission.“Just being here has given me a better understanding of how we Navajo have come a long way with the Long Walk,” said LaCinda Hardy-Constant, 45, a postulant and community organizer working with Asset Based Community Development at the Good Shepherd Mission in Fort Defiance, Arizona.One cold, windy day in early November, postulants and aspirants from the Episcopal Church’s Navajoland Area Mission squeezed into a church-owned minivan in Santa Rosa, New Mexico, for the 45-minute drive to Fort Sumner, a small community in the mid-western part of the state. There, a memorial commemorates the spot where some 8,500 Navajo were interned between 1864 and 68.The previous day, group members each drove four to eight hours to Santa Rosa from Fort Defiance, Arizona, Farmington, New Mexico, and Bluff, Utah, to meet Bishop David Bailey. He organized the Bosque Redondo trip as part of a theological-education experience including both the Navajo and Episcopal Church’s history in Navajoland.“The goal is to raise up indigenous people for leadership with the intent, in the near future, to elect a Navajo bishop,” said Bailey, 72, appointed by the presiding bishop to serve Navajoland. “And to raise up the lay leadership to allow them to have a larger role.”Navajoland had one indigenous priest in 2010 when Bailey was elected bishop; he since has ordained one priest, three transitional deacons and identified seven postulants.“One thing we like to do is invite the community to identify leadership,” said Bailey. “Generally speaking, indigenous people will not put themselves forward.”Bailey approached potential candidates and asked them: “If the community supports you in this, would you do it?”“Then I was the advocate with the community; and for the most part it [community support] was unanimous,” he said.The thought of going from lay minister to transitional deacon initially frightened Deacon Inez Velarde, who serves St. Luke’s in the Desert in Carson, New Mexico, but eventually, she came around.“The congregation said, ‘You’ve been ready for a couple of years now; we’ll be behind you, Inez, we’ll support you,’” recalled Velarde during the drive along Interstate 40 from Santa Rosa to Farmington via Albuquerque.Navajoland Area MissionIn 1978, the Episcopal Church carved out sections of the dioceses of Rio Grande, Arizona and Utah – areas within and surrounded by the 27,000-square-mile Navajo reservation – to create the Navajoland Area Mission. It was an effort toward unification of language, culture and families. Of the eight bishops to serve Navajoland, one, Steven Plummer, who died in 2005, was indigenous.Between 125,000 and 150,000 Navajo live on the reservation, which is about the size of West Virginia. Many people work in extractive industries, such as oil, uranium and petroleum, but an estimated 50 percent of the population is unemployed and 50 percent lives in extreme poverty. Addiction, domestic abuse and suicide rates are high. Where the Navajo have struggled, so has the Episcopal Church in Navajoland.When the Episcopal Church designated the mission, it didn’t provide the necessary resources to build it up, Bailey wrote in a July letter to church leaders.“Changing times and several internal challenges have contributed to an inability of the larger church to meet the needs or enable the success of the mission. No substantive efforts were undertaken reflective of a long-term commitment to create, implement and build a sound foundation for the future of the church in Navajoland,” he wrote.Failure to identify and develop lay and ordained Navajo leadership, and the lack of credible, culturally relevant theological training for clergy, contributed to the church’s failure to meet the area mission’s needs, Bailey said. (Click here for a related story on confronting ministry challenges.)Hardy-Constant and two other transitional deacons study at the Indigenous Studies Center at Vancouver Theological Seminary, in British Columbia, where they receive theological training based on an indigenous model both on site and online. (A fourth seminarian is studying at Church Divinity School of the Pacific, the Episcopal Church-affiliated seminary in Berkeley, Calif.)(Bailey and the Episcopal bishops of Alaska, South Dakota and Utah, all of whom serve large indigenous populations, have formed the “Bishops Native Collaboration” to develop a core curriculum for indigenous peoples and to help identify scholarship opportunities for seminary study.)A hogan is the traditional home of the Navajo people; there are both male and female hogans. ENS Photo/Lynette WilsonThe area mission is unique as the only truly indigenous mission in the Episcopal Church, and the Hogan Learning Circle, a blending of traditional and Christian beliefs developed by Plummer, is part of what distinguishes Episcopal identity in Navajoland, Cornelia Eaton, a seminarian and the bishop’s administrative assistant, said during a drive from Farmington to Bluff.Confronting historyThe Long Walk is just one of the atrocities the U.S. government committed against the Navajo that led to intergenerational trauma: Others include government-run boarding schools that separated children from their families, culture and language; and its livestock-management policies of the 1930s and 40s that drastically reduced the Navajo’s herds because of the fear of overgrazing, said Bailey.“From my perspective, I don’t think you can separate the Long Walk from the boarding schools and the slaughter of livestock,” said Bailey. “In many ways they are all connected in the devaluing of a people.“Part of that is a sense of shame that leads to abuse. You end up having a system that builds upon itself to the present day. Generations have never talked about the pain, there’s no way to heal.”“Intergenerational trauma” describes the long-lasting effects of suffering, violence and abuse, particularly in reference to the historical sufferings of indigenous people. These effects, in turn, feed the high rates of alcohol and drug abuse and domestic violence found in the Navajo nation and other Native-American communities. Three of Eaton’s five brothers died alcohol-related deaths.“It’s a tough disease, and it passes from generation to generation,” said Eaton.Indian Social Services has “all kinds of programs” but often lacks the funding to implement them, she said. And not unlike the church, only a few people are involved in them, which Eaton blames on lack of education in the communities.“There’s a lack of education that can hold people back, and maybe personal stuff that people have to deal with before they can get involved to help a community,” she said. “I think people need to understand the personal transformation part of the process; there is a lot of knowledge gained out of personal discovery.”Many Episcopal Church leaders in Navajoland are cradle Episcopalians, with many families having been involved with the church for generations. But people served by the Episcopal Church in Navajoland come from varied backgrounds: mixed families, those who closely follow native cultural traditions, Pentecostals and those from other evangelical churches where Navajo traditions have been abandoned. The Navajo nation is located in Mormon country.“It’s a requirement for ordained people to know the history of native people in America and native people in the Episcopal Church,” said Bailey during the drive Albuquerque to Santa Rosa. “If you are going to be ordained, you need to respond to those in our midst and address questions in a coherent manner.”“The Long Walk is such a fundamental piece of the intergenerational problems that contributes to the social ills that they feel today,” said Bailey. That is part of the reason it’s important for the leaders to visit Bosque Redondo and know what happened there, he said. “What has surprised me is the number of people who I have talked to who have not experienced Bosque Redondo and indigenous history.”Into the silenceThe group passed nary a car on the drive from Santa Rosa through the high desert to Fort Sumner, population est. 1,000. Besides the six postulants, aspirants and Bailey, perhaps one or two other people visited the memorial that day.“This place is a real problem for Navajo people to visit, or to come here,” said C.J. Law, who manages the memorial. “A lot of people died here and on the way down. There was a hospital, but no cemetery, so no one knows where the dead are buried.”An estimated 2,000 to 2,500 people died, with some accounts putting the figure higher, added Law.Not all the Navajo took the Long Walk; some hid in the vast Navajo country.“So not all of them came here, and no one knew how many there actually were,” said Law. Those who came, he added, entered voluntarily – that is “true but not true … they didn’t come in front of a gun, Mother Nature brought them here.”He meant the Navajo were starving and desperate. Soldiers burned their crops and fruit trees and slaughtered their livestock. Still, food wasn’t always plentiful on the Bosque Redondo reservation. And the army expected 3,000, but 8,500 came. The amount of food varied with drought and poor agricultural conditions, and not everyone stayed.“Seventy-five hundred went home. So if you do the math, 1,000 of them died or escaped,” Law said. “Some came and went. The army never had a handle on how many came and went.”Hundreds of Mescalero Apache also were interned at the Bosque Redondo reservation beginning in 1863, but by 1865 they’d all left by their own accord.Aside from the howling wind on the day of the November visit, the memorial, located outside the already quiet town center, sits under big sky, clouded in silence.During a visit to the Bosque Redondo Memorial, a Navajo veteran left his Purple Heart medal. Ranger Grace Roybal attaches the medal to a wooden during a prayer service at the memorial in Fort Sumner, New Mexico. Deacon Paula Henson, Bishop David Bailey and Deacon Catherine Plummer look on. ENS Photo/Lynette WilsonAt the start of a conversation that lasted four hours, Law asked those present what they’d heard about the Long Walk and the internment camp.“I understand that many people died here, on the way here and on the way back, and that the animals ate them, and their bones are scattered here and there,” said Deacon Paula Henson, who also works as a ministry coordinator at the Good Shepherd Mission in Fort Defiance.Many did die on the way to the camp, Law explained, but on the way out, many left in wagons.“I read that during the Long Walk pregnant women and the old and the sick who could not keep up got shot,” said Velarde, the deacon from St. Luke’s in the Desert.Law confirmed that the historical record supports what Velarde had heard.It wasn’t the first time Deacon Catherine Plummer had visited Bosque Redondo. During the four-hour session, she shared the story of how the Navajo who’d stayed behind hidden in the canyons sent “skin walkers,” usually taking the form of coyotes, to check on their family members. It was something Law said he’d never heard before.The sparsely curated memorial at Bosque Redondo is interpreted mostly through the Anglo-American perspective. Law said he would like to change this by inviting Navajo, like Plummer, to share their stories. For the most part, however, those present agreed that historically families and the Navajo culture at large have not discussed the Long Walk; stories have not been passed down through the generations. This silence hascontributed to the intergenerational trauma that has plagued the Navajo people for more than a century, the Navajo say.“We need to be the instruments of the healing. That’s why we are here,” said Plummer, widow of Bishop Steven Plummer, who serves at St. Mary of the Moonlight in Oljato, Utah.  “I always tell my daughter, we have to hit bottom, get to the bottom of what our people went through. Cry about it, pray about it and rise above it.”Visiting the memorial, Plummer said she felt like she walking in her ancestor’s shoes.“I don’t know that I would have survived that,” she said.HealingHardy-Constant left the reservation for 14 years because of domestic abuse perpetrated against her by her children’s father. After a bad beating, Hardy-Constant spent a week in the hospital unable to open her eyes. She was “forced” to leave the reservation, she said. “I didn’t want my children to grow up in that environment and suffer the trauma.”She went to Phoenix, where she received help from the Phoenix Indian Center. She found a job at Arizona State University. She stayed until 2007, when her sense of responsibility toward the people living on the reservation called her home. There, she began volunteering in the community serving women and substance abuse recovery programs.Later Hardy-Constant spoke to the bishop about bringing Al Anon and Alcoholics Anonymous to Good Shepherd and, through that process, attended the White Bison Wellbriety Training Institute.“My vision is to help other families in that situation,” she said. “You can leave, you can survive that impact and move forward.”Visiting Bosque Redondo helped her to understand better the connection between the Long Walk and the struggle to heal.“To sit there for four hours, I didn’t even realize,” said Hardy-Constant on the drive back to Santa Rosa. “If I didn’t know the words ‘forgiveness’ and ‘reconciliation,’ I wouldn’t be here.”“How could we be in that position just about whether there was gold and silver underground? It begins to come together, and now that we experienced this we can tell the story in our workshops and trainings.”It was hard to hear the history of her people, Hardy-Constant said, but the visit was about reconciliations and forgiveness and better understanding intergeneration trauma.Velarde agreed. “I had to come and see it, see where my ancestors were and what happened. I need to be healed from it, too, to do my ministry,” she said, reflecting on the visit the following day.Following a daylong visit to the Bosque Redondo Memorial, Deacon Inez Velarde and Arnold Joe, an aspirant, share in the Eucharist. ENS Photo/Lynette WilsonFollowing the conversation with Law, the postulants and aspirants moved through the memorial and watched a short film before gathering with Bailey at the prayer circle to receive Eucharist.Law said he hoped the Navajo could feel the presence of their ancestors at Bosque Redondo.“This is not an evil place despite the evil that may have taken place here,” said Law. “Those who died here are smiling [in] that they have not been forgotten.”The U.S. government never found gold and silver in Navajoland. By 1868, three years after the end of the Civil War, it had realized the internment camp at Bosque Redondo was a failure. At first the government wanted to send the Navajo to a reservation in Oklahoma, but the Navajo, led by Barboncito and Manuelito, successfully negotiated a return home, a rare thing among indigenous people.“We are probably one of the few that were allowed to go back to our homeland,” said Eaton. “Some of them died of broken hearts longing to come home.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.
