Solution Needed, question asked, questions answered!

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 Oprah?
Hi there,
 
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 have to insert a message on her website's email link:  www.oprah.com .
I just copied and pasted this there.

HELP, looking for artist.

I met a man named, I think, Tony Richardson, several years ago. He is
Sioux, and he made some of the props used in the movie, Dances With Wolves. I
wonder if you know of him, and could help me find him. A friend of mine is
very interested in purchasing some of his work.
Thanks for any help you may be able to give.

To 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.

Thank you.

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 horses.

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 other horses.

13. Re-writing the expected performance requirements for all horses.

14. Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position.
