    Hey planetcity1—so what books on Native America have you been digging into? You dig into any of Ella Cara Deloria’s work? Her Waterlily is a rare look at Lakota women pre-contact time period based on her first hand field research. One of my personal favorites. I’m doing a little digging into Vine Deloria’s God is Red–when I’m not tracking Lolo and Zintkala.
    Btw, your dig-n-dash been featured/awared via moi. Grins. So glad you’ve not been ‘sinked’–there’s a great ‘children’s’ book that deals with sinkholes–Tangerine? Orange? Okay–I will have to get back to you with the correct title! LOL.

      I have read so many books that the titles have run together. And I’ve passed them along after reading, so I can’t look ’em up to tell you what they were. I can tell you I’ve covered a ton of history, beading, regalia, finger weaving, spiritual practices, the use of herbs, basketry, etc. etc. until I almost know a bit about what the others are discussing. I will have to read the Deloria books when I get the chance, though, cuz I know those are some I haven’t gotten to yet. Oh, and I’ve also become acquainted with the various varieties of Kinnick Kinnick and Sacred Tobacco along the way. So much to learn, so little time…lol…

      • 47whitebuffalo Says:

        Yes, I DO SEE! Your interest areas differ from mine which are more historical/political/social than artistry. I also note a number of Cherokee venues. Hmm. Okay I am going to attemp a link to this post/reply of yours in case anyone out there is interested. Grins!

        • 47whitebuffalo Says:

          HA! It WORKS! LOLOLOLOL!

        • planetcity1 Says:

          In case you didn’t know, I have been adopted into a local Cherokee band. Thus my interest in Cherokee history as well as my initial (and continuing) interest in the Lakota. I hang out with makers of flutes and drums and blankets as well as artists, so I, of course, take as interest in anything done by hand.
          If you want to view some beautiful work, Identity by Design: Tradition, Change, and Celebration in Native Women’s Dresses has some quality pics of historical native regalia; the photos alone are worth the price of the book.

    Don’t make us worry about ya…….

    Hope all is well!

    • planetcity1 Says:

      Hi, Mel. No, a sinkhole didn’t swallow me — although there are a couple of those now within a mile of my place. I’m visiting everyone’s blogs, including yours, on a daily basis, but have been busy offline catching up on some Native American reading; I’ve only got a dozen or so books to go before
      I sorta kinda get caught up. Sorry about the lack of posts, but there are only so many hours in the day. 😉
