An Inuit perspective on climate change http://www.newspaper.indianlife.org/story/2015/01/05/news/earth-has-shifted-inuit-elders-issue-warning-to-nasa-and-the-world/582.html


The Inuit perspective on climate change is similar to the hypotheses developed by Milutin Milankovich in the early 20th century.  He said that the earth spun in space like a top winding down, which meant that it “wobbled.”  


Buffalo Skulls for Sun Dance

Buffalo are sacred animals for a number of people, including us. Over the past couple of decades, we have been happy to donate buffalo meat, skulls, and hides for Native American sacred ceremonies around the country. One of our friends came by this weekend to collect skulls for two different Sun Dances, one in South Dakota this summer, and another in Arizona next year. It’s always a good feeling to know that the spirit of the buffalo, present in the skulls, will be cared for and honored.

We had smoked buffalo brisket for dinner with Mike’s green-chili-macaroni-and-cheese. Never met anybody who could turn away a second helping of Mike’s mac and cheese.

MOONLIGHT WATER, a book by Meredith and Win Blevins

We just read, with delight, the upcoming novel by Meredith and Win Blevins. With this book, they may well become the new Edward Abbey of the Southwest. MOONLIGHT WATER is filled with Navajo wisdom and an impeccable sense of the vast and wonderful desert from which it is born. We’re reading the Advanced Reading Copy, so we’re not sure when the book will be released, but when it appears on the shelves, we think you’ll enjoy the heartfelt story of a lost soul just trying to find some meaning in life. We did.
