Support Jonah during his time of healing.

Donation protected
Greetings family, friends, & loved ones, this is Lilian Hill, I'm raising funds for my dear brother Jonah who's going through an extremely difficult time right now. Jonah Hill is an amazing Hopi/Quechan ethnobotanist, river guide, and artist who expresses his love of life and the natural world through expressions in wood, metal, printmaking, and photography. Jonah is an active father of two beautiful children and a loving husband. Recently after returning from a Grand Canyon river trip, Jonah developed a foot infection that is quickly turning into a serious staphylococcal infection resulting in the removal of two of his right toes and deep tissue removal from his right foot. Complications with diabetes continues to inhibit Jonah's ability to fight the infections and Jonah is facing the possibility of more surgeries and long-term medical treatment.
Jonah is a full-time artist, whose sole income is based on his ability to create in his studio and market his art. Jonah has cancelled all of his existing orders and upcoming shows, and has refunded deposits. We have no idea how long Jonah will be in hospital and have no idea how long it will be before he is able to get back into his studio. Making art is one of Jonah's biggest passions and he's extremely nervous about the near future and providing for his family. At this point Jonah is receiving lots of love from family and friends and is staying positive and concentrating healing energy towards deep healing.
I'm reaching out for support on Jonah's behalf so that he can concentrate on healing and not worry about the immediate needs associated with paying his mortgage/insurance, putting food on the table, purchasing firewood, and providing for the urgent needs of his family as we move into the winter season. As an uninsured Indigenous person, Jonah may face additional medical costs but we are hopeful that these costs will be covered by programs within the Indian Health Services. (We'll keep you updated!)
Any gracious support that you may be able to offer will be greatly appreciated and will go a long way in supporting Jonah and his family through this difficult time. Another way that folks can support is to visit Jonah's website at to purchase items for sale.
