RETURN OF THE BONES DEDICATION
With loving memory, Return of the Bones is dedicated to the ghosts of Pecos.
Though they be extinct, they are cloud people who move gently over the ruins of Pecos Pueblo.
Though they have died out, they are not forgotten.
Their spirit lives on in the Jemez people and all indigenous peoples of earth.
From their toil, a civilization was built.
From their imagination, a legend was born.
From their bones, medical science expanded.
May their fire of Montezuma burn brightly.
May their feathered serpent awaken.
