      Thanks again Ted,

      Currently I am seeking permission to use Hilery B Bookers abstrat review for Learning Native Wisdom at:
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/native2native2
      and in a Native 2 timeline sometime later.

      Gary's book was first published online on April 22. I thought this would be an excellant opener prior to Awakening Day of Slumber Event April 22 at Native 2. So far pronmotinal skills has only produced 2 members and I have yet to inviite Joe Wakins or Fla. Gov. Scott. Joe isn't the newsgroup type and Gov. Scott more than likely has had enough criticism. More than likey this will be a yearly atempt so it may take some time to incline an ear in the long run. Hopefully Susan Stan & Vince will give the AWS group most of the App options at Yahoo! Groups. This will enhances group particapation greatly I think sooner than we currently realize.

      Hopefully the Inuit/NANA & other coastal natives worldwide wont be effected much right away by the pefuming industry although ambergris is costly.

      Jeff also sent an email to Sitting Owl and Oz besides me at Ancient Waterways somewhat as a heads up or alert.

      Not sure why he didn't send it to you also Ted... perhaps due to short stay... at any rate, AWS is currently at 101 which is roughly 98% more active than Native 2. Perhaps I don't state enough that I am not a ligit AWS member and perhaps not as welcome as I use to be. Sometime I forget I'm not.

      be well,

        I'm not sure I'd use intrude. It seems very differnt
        now than it use to be. I'm not sure if it's because
        I'm older or if natural youthfulness has actually
        grown up just a tad bit. Trust is a hard thing to come
        by in righting wrongs. Being a non native as you are
        and not knowing your great great grandmother isn't
        stange. I knew my great grandmother but not as the
        older grandkids did. Being that kid was strange. And
        my grandfather I'll never forget when I was 5 he came in
        the house and shut the door when I realized suddenly it
        was only him and I in the living room. I knew him very
        well, yet it never donged on me to ever ask him why he
        was so dark.

        can't say that I've ever come across "pretendian" before;
        not that I can recall of. Is this in a slanguage dictionary
        yet? Seems there would be at least 2 or 3 meaning for the word.

              Gary is anything but a pretend native, but a competent writer and scholar.  He gained his ideas from teaching in many places where native wisdom is not dead, and getting to know natives as persons, culture, and religion. He realized that what was being taught in schools was killing their cultures.  He quotes an Alaskan Secretary of education who announces that it is his goal to do just that among the North Slope tribes!    This book is for the rest of us non natives.  While he is not a Farley Mowatt type writer, with great stories and insights, his work is a good wake up call to all of us.

              Gary's book was first published online on April 22. I thought this would be an excellant opener prior to Awakening Day of Slumber Event April 22 at Native 2. So far pronmotinal skills has only produced 2 members and I have yet to inviite Joe Wakins or Fla. Gov. Scott. Joe isn't the newsgroup type and Gov. Scott more than likely has had enough criticism.

              Hopefully the Inuit/NANA & other coastal natives worldwide wont be effected much right away by the pefuming industry although ambergris is costly.

                My mother grew up in S Dakota, social worked, and knew lots of Indians + families.  Did not meet any affluent ones (ha,ha), but moved to Duluth.  While working fuel assistance she met _____ Ravenfeather from New York, a dynamic woman with coarse black hair (dye?).  Of course whe wore moccasins, black dresses, and dripped Mexican silver and beads.  She asked to handle all 'native' peoples due to her special affinity (not stated).  Remember, she will be the one to decide how much heating you can have in the winter.  Anyway Duluth is a very Anishenabe city, we used to have more people from Red & Nett Lake than from Africa.  I have First Nation friends ( see my site, www.savageart.com ) and their reaction ranged from laughter when asked about her to a fellow whoes mother had been handled by her who described what he would do with a knife so she never use a pen again.  She fooled them for about a heartbeat.  If you want to know what a real urban winter camp is like, contact me off site.  charbruns@...

                In a related case, I have heard that Iron Eyes Cody was sued for being an Italian impersonating a Native American.

                I'm not sure I'd use intrude. It seems very differnt
                now than it use to be. I'm not sure if it's because
                I'm older or if natural youthfulness has actually
                grown up just a tad bit. Trust is a hard thing to come
                by in righting wrongs. Being a non native as you are
                and not knowing your great great grandmother isn't
                stange. I knew my great grandmother but not as the
                older grandkids did. Being that kid was strange. And
                my grandfather I'll never forget when I was 5 he came in
                the house and shut the door when I realized suddenly it
                was only him and I in the living room. I knew him very
                well, yet it never donged on me to ever ask him why he
                was so dark.

                can't say that I've ever come across "pretendian" before;
                not that I can recall of. Is this in a slanguage dictionary
                yet? Seems there would be at least 2 or 3 meaning for the word.

                be well,
                jamey

                  I grew up on a sheep ranch.  We hayed, butchered, etc. on red clay that mainly grew rocks.  Part of the troika of three families cooping on labor & equiptment was Jerry King (Mr. King to be and Jerry to my dad).  We was awful dark, but then everyone was who worked outside sun to sun.  His eyes looked like all the other 'french' guys I knew, (LeGarde, DuHaime, Savage), angular cheeks, etc.  No one in the fifties was Indian, or would admit it, and one day I asked him if he was related to the King of France, he laughed (as did everyone else in the hayloft) and said, "Sure."  char bruns

                  I'm not sure I'd use intrude. It seems very differnt
                  now than it use to be. I'm not sure if it's because
                  I'm older or if natural youthfulness has actually
                  grown up just a tad bit. Trust is a hard thing to come
                  by in righting wrongs. Being a non native as you are
                  and not knowing your great great grandmother isn't
                  stange. I knew my great grandmother but not as the
                  older grandkids did. Being that kid was strange. And
                  my grandfather I'll never forget when I was 5 he came in
                  the house and shut the door when I realized suddenly it
                  was only him and I in the living room. I knew him very
                  well, yet it never donged on me to ever ask him why he
                  was so dark.

                  can't say that I've ever come across "pretendian" before;
                  not that I can recall of. Is this in a slanguage dictionary
                  yet? Seems there would be at least 2 or 3 meaning for the word.

                  be well,
                  jamey

                    Thanks again Ted,

                    Currently I am seeking permission to use Hilery B Bookers abstrat review for Learning Native Wisdom at:
                    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/native2native2
                    and in a Native 2 timeline sometime later.

                    Gary's book was first published online on April 22. I thought this would be an excellant opener prior to Awakening Day of Slumber Event April 22 at Native 2. So far pronmotinal skills has only produced 2 members and I have yet to inviite Joe Wakins or Fla. Gov. Scott. Joe isn't the newsgroup type and Gov. Scott more than likely has had enough criticism. More than likey this will be a yearly atempt so it may take some time to incline an ear in the long run. Hopefully Susan Stan & Vince will give the AWS group most of the App options at Yahoo! Groups. This will enhances group particapation greatly I think sooner than we currently realize.

                    Hopefully the Inuit/NANA & other coastal natives worldwide wont be effected much right away by the pefuming industry although ambergris is costly.

                      I personally have always considered you a 'legitimate' member of this group and as welcome as others here, I appreciate your contributions of many interesting links and ideas to our site.  
                      I am not computer savy at all and do not seem to be improving, but many of the suggestions you submit and languagung, including computer and 'archy' lingo, seems to go well over my head to the point that I cannot even comment on the ideas. There may be others here who feel the same way.  Because we do not have a group Moderator as groups such as PreColumbian Inscriptions and other YahooGroups have, most Posts here go uncommented upon, unless by the membership, and I am always glad especially to see posts that obviously took some time and thought to receive acknowledgement by one or more, or better yet, discussion.

                      Maybe Vince or Stan understands what your last post -- I believe sent yesterday -- is referring to re: YahooGroup Apps being considered for this group....

                      I am glad you are involved in a number of other groups, Jamey, but I hope you will consider yourself a valued member of Ancient Waterways Society.  

                      The abovementioned book listed in the Subject heading of this post retails for around $50, and beyond the pockbook of many here if unable to get it via interlibrary loan.  In the meantime, I would very much welcome it if Jamey, Ted, or someone do a review, or cite interesting passages from "Learning Native Wisdom", or any book related to our group's interests.

                      I always enjoyed Mike White's fine book reviews over at PreColumbian Inscriptions.  The hosts/co-hosts and others such as Steve Garcia from AWS have been members of Mike's group long before our group was founded.  In fact, because of our respect for that group, many of the suggestions and founding principles we carried over to our society.

So far pronmotinal skills has only produced 2 members and I have yet to inviite Joe Wakins or Fla. Gov. Scott. Joe isn't the newsgroup type and Gov. Scott more than likely has had enough criticism. More than likey this will be a yearly atempt so it may take some time to incline an ear in the long run. Hopefully Susan Stan & Vince will give the AWS group most of the App options at Yahoo! Groups. This will enhances group particapation greatly I think sooner than we currently realize.

                        It was very interesting to read what you wrote. After a double check on
                        the internet I agree with you. I once spent a day with Iron Eyes Cody and
                        he certainly played the Native American. He asked, almost immediately,
                        about my ethnicity. When I told him I was Jewish he subjected me to a
                        long story about being “forced” into eating a corned beef by Jesse Lansky
                        and how it was totally disguising. Since reading this post I keep
                        rethinking that day. The traditional Hollywood formula (30’s,40’s) was
                        to have Anglos play the cowboys, Italians and Jews play the Mexicans
                        (you can spot a Brooklyn gesture among some in the crowd scenes) and have
                        the Mexicans play the Indians with the real Indians unemployed. Mark

                          I could be wrong but I don't think Gary was ever in doubt Ted.
                          Jeff seems to be either addressing me or how crazy it can get in a public groups in general perhaps. The Google group Jeff brought up was one of the first groups I started in. It's no different in Yahoo! public groups. I'm quit frank in either public or private groups myself it makes no difference. Although the posers are sought out like yellow jackets swarming around pear trees at harvest time they will evenually go away but not before invited to Native 2 Native 2 from Google alt. Native if it's no one but Little Red Hawk I will count it as a blessing but the last I heard he needed a pc... which isn't the case as it was in 2002 03 04. Yahoo! Chat is like google groups it will be there forever and not used much anywhere except perhaps at Native 2 Native 2.

                          be well,
                          jamey

                            ... one thing is for certian canned corn beef is nasty.
                            COME AND GET IT!!

                            Burnheat family aka Bernard family were among earlest settlers in Senoia Georgia following the Indian Springs Treaty. Sim Clower Burnard was alotted 20,000 acers here and following the Civil War built a water mill or grist mill on Bear Creek and laid to rest under a nearby Oak Tree if I recall the archives correctly.

                                aarrr!! BurnHEART/Bernard
                                Sorry about Mark, AWS,
                                ... and you to Leola Dolee



                                L.A. has walmart subs in their deli's now?
                                ...mmm mmm Vegan corn beef sub please!!
                                Hold the Tofu! Speaking of Tofu has anybody
                                beside me tried to flame broil a Hebrew National
                                hotdog... Reminded me of abraham & Daniel escaping
                                the firey furnace.

                                Examples of YahooGroup! Apps avalible for Yahoo Groups throughout post. What this would means for AWS members. Once moderators enable an application this would enable members to become a grouplet. Become a grouplet to whatever degree you want. These grouplet applcations as far as I know are applied only to Yahoo Groups! Online site or link

                                http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/ancient_waterways_society/grouplets/subscriptions

                                And perhaps depending on applied apps is more like academic setting
                                As you can see if you visit link or the AWS Homepage -- above Chat there it is right above it in Group Labs (Beta)-- Applications -- There are no apps currently at AWS. They have to be activated by group moderator In fact in 45 public & private groups 1 group only one had used only one app and had deleted that one and enabled it again the very next day. Other than that 15 years of yahoo groups have been cought in the digital dustben like staring lab rats. And the tools to make them stable was just a click away, unapplied unseen hidden and hanging on by a thread.

                                Applications have been here for years at YahooGroups! Way before cell phone craze and multimedia apps

                                could we use a:

                                How To (Instructions) Enable group members to share "how
                                to" guides

                                This is an app. I didn't need to create a folder last year.
                                In fact regarding secure issues & attachments there is an additional app for photos a total of 3 links to add photo at AWS. If applied to AWS this could be used for family, events, lectures, tours, sites,
                                and yes there are 2 app for Maps a people map and location map and even a RSVP App for events or a created event that tracks how many folks are planning on atending an event. And all these tools and more could be at every AWS members disposal.

                                The more you share as a grouplet the better the group can function is an idea to many have ignored. This would make group moderatation a whole lot easier and promote group responiblity and task managagement. Although AWS is a public group grouplet information is not disclosed to the general public.

                                Reviews
                                Enable your group to share reviews of restaurants, local businesses and services, electronics, movies, music, and more. Or create your own AWS review application.


                                AWS has elected to be a Public Outlet to Ancient Waterways Society composed of AWS Members collectively as a body of International colleges from a verity of backgrounds and first nation peoples for the general public.

                                People Map
                                The People Map provides an easy way for group members to
                                share where they're from and can also be used to create a dynamic
                                address book for the group or to create group specific profiles.

                                Places Map
                                A great way for group members to share information about
                                places that are relevant to the group. You can customize the map to make it about a specific type of place (e.g. restaurants or dog parks or tourist attractions) or leave it open to anything.


                                Hold the Swiss...oh!!
                                Hold the PASTRAMI Ohh No!! BLOOD SAUSAGE sandwish please.. No!!!
                                Don't get me wrong I would love to try some really good corn beef.
                                Irish family lives in FLa. Jewish family are proud to be... from the Father Land? Humm Stockholm Syndrome posers Some want in... some want out.

                                Anywho... I have a good idea of where to look on the East Coast.
                                West Coast: Los Angeles 34.0522° N, 118.2428° W
                                East Coast: Conyers Ga 33.6675° N, 84.0178° W

                                Conyers is about 25m just outside of Atlanta

                                ...as a side order I'll take the Red no.40 Jello
                                with cherry peppers & turkey bacon and a small bowl
                                of your best broccoli soup! It's a Kosher thing...
                                What's that... is the pink slime okay by me?
                                Your the pre-cooked sandwich maker... suprise me.
                                Yes! Freshly graded cheddar please. I expect the
                                best in L.A. sub shops.

                                Dude this a Fallout 3 New Vasas mod in L.A RPG's!!
                                It's hard to imagine good corn beef at a sub slop
                                at the chowhound chow all-day-long but if you insist
                                that it is so good Jews & Muslims can eat here in peace
                                ...okay perhaps not all that.

                                I'd rather take my chances in the Resturant
                                captial of the South in Conyers Georgia with once an
                                excellent Ladino sub shop ... I wished!! It was a
                                pressed tuna on toasted whole wheat sub is a Kosher fav.
                                altough my first was made at the Frontera Mex-Mex Grill.
                                Make them myself now. There is a local favorite Mexican
                                eatery in Macon: Tacos La Playita noted for excellent casadia's wonderful serloin steak burritos and the best ever guacamole.

                                If the Counry Kitchen buffet is still an all you can eat buffet
                                for 8 to 10 bucks this place is unbelievable. Perhsps
                                a non Kosher affiliation but when good health ratings
                                are high and large sellection of fine fresh baked goods, dishes
                                casseroles. Main course including Blackened Baked Alaskian Cod
                                perhaps the best on ice on the entire East Coast. If
                                it's not in Conyers it's not a Country Kitchen. An excelent
                                stop for passerbys clubs, schools to bussiness lunchin.

                                Biker Clubs & perhaps Societies can make request to the american spirit tv show to request touring suggestion segments you would like see. Warm Spings Georgia was the latest episode here in the southeast est

                                American Spirit TV:
                                LinkedIN
                                Facebook
                                Youtube

                                be well,

                                  Burnheat family aka Bernard family were among earlest settlers in Senoia Georgia following the Indian Springs Treaty.

                                    I hear ya Charlie,

                                    AWS could have it's own Barter System or fund raiser. Personally I despize the term handout. Being greatful goes either way.

                                    We could call it the AWS Keep Charlie out of the Corn Beef Cans Fund


                                    For Sale
                                    Create an easy way for people to buy and sell from each other. You can choose to customize the application to make it about a specific type of item (e.g. bicycles or tickets or ) or leave it open to anything.

                                    I have 8 clay marble & marble marbles found in Monroe County Georgia.
                                    They could have been made for Creek Cherokee East Africans or for early settlement childern around the Treaty of Indian Springs. If some may recall these are of the 109 I use to have and was going to give to AWS members... which ironiclly currently is at 101 members

                                    min. Value is estimated at $200.00 each.

                                    Give Away
                                    Whether you're a Freecycling or Freesharing group that is dedicated to giving stuff away or you're a group that is about something else entirely but just wants to make exchanges possible among group members, this application makes it easier for folks to give stuff away.

                                    be well,
                                    jamey

                                      "Marbles" were more for playing head games and it is a bit ironic that
                                      this comes in a thread that also mentions kosher vs non-kosher.

                                      Most of the clay and stone "marbles" found in NA sites are about 27 to
                                      30 mm in diameter. Some are heavily damaged. In order for the hard
                                      spheres to become so heavily damaged, they had to either have been
                                      crunched by farm implements or had to hit something very hard, like a
                                      cranium.

                                      These objects are almost certainly missiles for slings. When they are
                                      found in any other part of the world, that is the immediate presumption.
                                      Yet, when found in a Native American site, we jump to children's toys as
                                      the presumption. What is wrong with this picture?

                                      Jamie, I would very much like the opportunity to run a few of these past
                                      Scott Wolter.

                                      can choose to customize the application to make it about a specific type
                                      of item (e.g. bicycles or tickets or ) or leave it open to anything.

                                        Actually, SRAC (waverly, ny) has tons of these in all sizes and shapes... Very few are a marble size...many are closer to a tennis ball size, some even softball sized. We also have the discoidals and the other flattened "game pieces", as well as bolo stones...which clearly were flung as a weapon or hunting stone after being tied onto a leather strap... My point is that the round balls range into sizes that doubtfully were easy to be used with a slingshot .. And a perfectly round stone takes a long time to make to be used when another unworked pebble many times would do...For that reason I would think that rolling was the obvious reason for the worked sphere shape as well as the discoidals  (which are also always made of hard stone too and usually banged up)- for whatever purpose, gaming or anything else a round shape can be used for...

                                        Just another opinion!

                                        "Marbles" were more for playing head games and it is a bit ironic that
                                        this comes in a thread that also mentions kosher vs non-kosher.

                                        Most of the clay and stone "marbles" found in NA sites are about 27 to
                                        30 mm in diameter. Some are heavily damaged. In order for the hard
                                        spheres to become so heavily damaged, they had to either have been
                                        crunched by farm implements or had to hit something very hard, like a
                                        cranium.

                                        These objects are almost certainly missiles for slings. When they are
                                        found in any other part of the world, that is the immediate presumption.
                                        Yet, when found in a Native American site, we jump to children's toys as
                                        the presumption. What is wrong with this picture?

                                          I once read how real marbles were made anciently by placing a small rounded stone in a hole or depressioin in the rock and letting running water fall on it and turn it until it was perfectly rounded.

                                          Actually, SRAC (waverly, ny) has tons of these in all sizes and shapes... Very few are a marble size...many are closer to a tennis ball size, some even softball sized. We also have the discoidals and the other flattened "game pieces", as well as bolo stones...which clearly were flung as a weapon or hunting stone after being tied onto a leather strap... My point is that the round balls range into sizes that doubtfully were easy to be used with a slingshot .. And a perfectly round stone takes a long time to make to be used when another unworked pebble many times would do...For that reason I would think that rolling was the obvious reason for the worked sphere shape as well as the discoidals  (which are also always made of hard stone too and usually banged up)- for whatever purpose, gaming or anything else a round shape can be used for...

                                          Just another opinion!

                                          "Marbles" were more for playing head games and it is a bit ironic that
                                          this comes in a thread that also mentions kosher vs non-kosher.

                                          Most of the clay and stone "marbles" found in NA sites are about 27 to
                                          30 mm in diameter. Some are heavily damaged. In order for the hard
                                          spheres to become so heavily damaged, they had to either have been
                                          crunched by farm implements or had to hit something very hard, like a
                                          cranium.

                                          These objects are almost certainly missiles for slings. When they are
                                          found in any other part of the world, that is the immediate presumption.
                                          Yet, when found in a Native American site, we jump to children's toys as
                                          the presumption. What is wrong with this picture?

                                            I once read how real marbles were made anciently by placing a small rounded stone in a hole or depressioin in the rock and letting running water fall on it and turn it until it was perfectly rounded.

                                            Actually, SRAC (waverly, ny) has tons of these in all sizes and shapes... Very few are a marble size...many are closer to a tennis ball size, some even softball sized. We also have the discoidals and the other flattened "game pieces", as well as bolo stones...which clearly were flung as a weapon or hunting stone after being tied onto a leather strap... My point is that the round balls range into sizes that doubtfully were easy to be used with a slingshot .. And a perfectly round stone takes a long time to make to be used when another unworked pebble many times would do...For that reason I would think that rolling was the obvious reason for the worked sphere shape as well as the discoidals  (which are also always made of hard stone too and usually banged up)- for whatever purpose, gaming or anything else a round shape can be used for...

                                            Just another opinion!

                                            "Marbles" were more for playing head games and it is a bit ironic that
                                            this comes in a thread that also mentions kosher vs non-kosher.

                                            Most of the clay and stone "marbles" found in NA sites are about 27 to
                                            30 mm in diameter. Some are heavily damaged. In order for the hard
                                            spheres to become so heavily damaged, they had to either have been
                                            crunched by farm implements or had to hit something very hard, like a
                                            cranium.

                                            These objects are almost certainly missiles for slings. When they are
                                            found in any other part of the world, that is the immediate presumption.
                                            Yet, when found in a Native American site, we jump to children's toys as
                                            the presumption. What is wrong with this picture?

Very few are a marble size...many are closer to a tennis ball size, some even softball sized. We also have the discoidals and the other flattened "game pieces", as well as bolo stones...which clearly were flung as a weapon or hunting stone after being tied onto a leather strap... My point is that the round balls range into sizes that doubtfully were easy to be used with a slingshot .. And a perfectly round stone takes a long time to make to be used when another unworked pebble many times would do...For that reason I would think that rolling was the obvious reason for the worked sphere shape as well as the discoidals  (which are also always made of hard stone too and usually banged up)- for whatever purpose, gaming or anything else a round shape can be used for...

                                                I only have 8 out of 109 Oz
                                                Only one clay the rest marble
                                                No quartz marbles recovered.
                                                Can't recall how many of those
                                                It wasn't many something like

                                                89 marble
                                                14 quartz
                                                7 clay

                                                or whatever I said at AWS sometime
                                                back.

                                                Cousin kept one I suppose I had given
                                                a few away that were marble and struck
                                                one with a solid blow one I must of
                                                thought was quartz split it about center
                                                as man tring to dive a 8p nail with
                                                a forceful intenton of sinking it in
                                                2 licks. 1 tiny chip was missing as
                                                I eye-balled it some more to see how
                                                off centered I was which was barely
                                                noticable from the halves... as I said
                                                before this stone had a core in the
                                                center. Never seen nothing like it.
                                                Pit on one half the core in the other
                                                dead center as far as I could tell.

                                                When my brother had first shown me
                                                these marbles and he told me where he
                                                had found them at being on a horse ranch
                                                I had assume that they may have been
                                                some type of gall stone until I seen
                                                the clay ones in the fish tank I really
                                                had no interest in them.

                                                If these babies were a projectile these
                                                bad boy wasn't intended to rattle some
                                                brains...damn Yuchi blow gun perhap?

                                                be well,

                                                  " If Im not mistaken Larry mon, it seems it may have been our Sting
                                                  Stone Stan (Min.Stan) who may have brought this up last year regarding
                                                  these marbles that somewhat favor turtle eggs but smaller or around the
                                                  subject of Klerksdorp spheres also."

                                                  "I once read how real marbles were made anciently by placing a small
                                                  rounded stone in a hole or depressioin in the rock and letting running
                                                  water fall on it and turn it until it was perfectly rounded."

                                                  I don't remember having commenting on that topic in the past.
                                                  Near-perfect spheres can certainly be created by water tumbling a rock
                                                  in a depression (just find a river with some holes in the underlying
                                                  bedrock or holes at the base of cascades and look in the bottom). But
                                                  that kind of process takes forever. I'm sure ancient people would have
                                                  "harvested" such spheres for various purposes, but can't conceive of
                                                  them placing stones there in an effort to create spheres.

                                                  Just my opinion.
