Solution Needed, question asked,
A good friend of mine recently acquired
a Two Bulls-Souix original oil painting. We would like to find
out more about Two Bulls? We would appreciate any information
that you could share with us about this artist. The painting
was painted in 1968.

Subject: First Nations voices on
This is something I've been
thinking about for some time now, and finally have taken the time to
write about, following a conversation with my mother who pointed out
a lack of a voice on the Oprah Winfrey show. (A mirror of
"society" on Aboriginal voices being silenced?)
I would like to begin by
acknowledging that Oprah Winfrey has given many women,
"minorities" and "people of colour" opportunities
to be heard and I really appreciate and support her Angel
Network (or whatever it's called) where she gives money and
coverage to organizations supporting social initiatives.
However, I have noticed that
Oprah has never had any shows (that I've ever seen) with an
Indigenous person, much less talking about issues of concern to
Indigenous people. (Please correct me if I'm wrong here.) But where
is her acknowledgment of what is going on in her own country with
the nations first people?
I heard about a show of hers
second hand, not having seen it myself. Oprah did a show
representing women of different ethnic, racial and cultural
backgrounds. Apparently she was showing differences in
representation & portrayal of women in the U.S. On this
show there was not one Aboriginal woman portrayed or voiced.
I understand that she must
have requests for so many shows that it's probably endless. However,
she is a gigantic influence on the views, opinions and voices of
people not only in North America, but around the world. I believe
that her shows have as much influence as the media on the way
we/society receive information. Why were/are Aboriginal women
left out of that program? This is not a small issue. She is
reflecting the representation that Native women &
people receive over and over again by government, by media, by
schools, and on and on. Silenced. Ignored.
I am forwarding this email to
her, and encourage you all to do the same.
Thanks for taking time to read
this. I would like to hear from you on your views on this if you
have a moment!
To send the show email you

whom it may concern,
I am in grade 7 Teacher, I am doing a project on the Tlinget
funeral potlatch and the
wife's role in it. I need some information and I hope you can
help me. I need to know if the chief's
wife does any special rituals or songs during the
funeral potlatch for the chief. A description and a photograph
of a Chilkat Blanket, a cremation pyre and a "slave
killer" (a pick like wooden tool used
to stab slaves in the head) would be helpful. I have used a book
called "Potlatch: Native Ceremony and Myth
on the Northwest Coast" by Mary Giraudo
Beck. If you could recommend any other resources that would be wonderful. If you
could help me I would greatly appreciate it.

Miss Indian USA
The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians, passed on from
generation to generation, says that when you discover that you are
riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount.
In modern corporate America and government, however, a whole range
of far more advanced strategies are often employed, such as:
01. Buying a stronger whip.
02. Changing riders.
03. Threatening the horse with termination.
04. Appointing a committee to study the horse.
05. Arranging to visit other countries to see how others ride dead
06. Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be included.
07. Re-classifying the dead horse as "living impaired."
08. Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse.
09. Harnessing several dead horses together to increase the speed.
10. Providing additional funding and/or training to increase the
dead horse's performance.
11. Doing a productivity study to see if lighter riders would
improve the dead horse's performance.
12. Declaring that as the dead horse does not have to be fed, it is
less costly, carries lower overhead, and therefore contributes
substantially more to the bottom line of the economy than do some
13. Re-writing the expected performance requirements for all
14. Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position.
