From Hauli Sioux Gray:

Hello family and friends. I was recently asked to help with a very special project. A feature film called "Fancy Dance" written and directed by Erica Tremblay is in production! The movie is being filmed in Oklahoma starting this month. There is a special pow wow scene that will be filmed at the First Americans Museum on September 2nd, 2022. We need pow wow dancers to help fill the arena and extra's to be in the background to recreate an Oklahoma pow wow scene. This is a very special opportunity for pow wow dancers/spectators to be showcased in a feature film. If you are interested in dancing in the movie please email me ([email protected]) your name, dance category, and age and I will send you more information. If you are interested in being an extra in the background please email [email protected]

The Crow are also called the Apsáalooke, Absaroka, and Apsaroke. Their name was given them by the Hidatsa, and meant “people [or children] of the large-beaked bird.” Historically, they lived in the Yellowstone River Valley. A Siouan tribe, they once were part of the Hidatsa, living around the headwaters of the upper Mississippi River in northern Minnesota and Wisconsin. Later, the Crow moved to the Devil’s Lake region of North Dakota, before splitting with the Hidatsa and moving westward.

Settling in Montana, the tribe split once again into two divisions, called the Mountain Crow and the River Crow. They were first encountered by two Frenchmen in 1743 near the present-day town of Hardin, Montana. When the Lewis and Clark expedition came upon them in 1804, they estimated some 350 lodges with about 3,500 members.

The age-old Wichita Mountains are roughly 550 million years old. These great timeworn mountains are amid the oldest mountain ranges on earth. The mixed oak forest, mixed prairie grasses, mountain plants, animal life, and ravines are embedded among the unique range of the Southern Plains.
In the present-day Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, the bison bull can stand about six feet tall and can weigh around 2,000 pounds. Bison cows give birth to vivid rust colored calves after nine months. With their small calves by their side, cows can become very dangerous when protecting their young.
The wonderful Comanche elder Niyah spoke of the buffalo hunt among Comanches. He shared that when the buffalo were plump in the fall time, the members left their village to get their supplies of meat for the winter. Also, the flies were not so annoying in the fall and the buffalo hides were in very good shape.
In their hunt, Comanches approached from downwind. The men stayed close to each other in the hunt and pursued their prey together. In their chase, Comanches tried to never turn an agitated herd of buffalo. With their fast horses, each Comanche normally took down two or three buffaloes. Afterward, they turned around and began to skin the fallen buffaloes.

Beautiful picture of a bison herd with the 2,464 foot high landmark Mount Scott in the background. In the Kotsoteka Comanche language, Mount Scott is called "Big Mountain". It still handsomely rests in the bounds of the historical Comancheria. Photograph courtesy of Mark Doiron.

We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off.

From Virginia Realbird:

Jericho surely didn't want to parade. He shedded some tears. Some talked to him and some scolded him. Seems like million things turning against him, however; but the key person was his Papa to turn things around. He quit and rode that horse. And the best was ahead of him and won his category. God wants champions out of everyone. Have a sweet sleep.

Proud Two-Spirit warrior Gregg Lewis of Schoolton, OK perished a car accident on July 20th, 2022. A lovely man, Gregg had a wonderful sense of humor and always entered the room with a boisterous AYEEEEE! and was an avid story teller, both of life experiences and a purveyor of Native heritage and wisdom. Through his work with Indian Legal Services, he helped landowners with legal questions and assistance. He always signed his e-mails "Miss Choctaw". He was loved respected by so many in NDN country whom he had helped on their journey of self-realization and pride in one's self. Chi pisa lachike, Gregg, Enjoy the stars.

DENVER — Jan Jacobs’ return to Denver from her Osage tribe’s ceremonial dances in Oklahoma has been anything but uneventful. Her navy blue Honda CR-V was stolen from the driveway of her home near East 17th Avenue and Pontiac Street sometime between Monday night and Tuesday morning. “It was devastating to walk out this morning and realized that my car was gone,” Jacobs said. “I wish they’d just taken the catalytic converter and driven off. But, you know, I guess be careful what you wish for.” Inside her SUV were centuries-old American Indian family heirlooms and regalia, items like an eagle wing fan and handmade suits that can never be replaced. “They’re not just something you can take off a shelf,” Jacobs said. “They have real significance for us.”
The Oklahoma City Indian Clinic is hosting Mental Health First Aid Training, This training will be held Tuesday, July 19th from 9:00-4:30 PM First Aiders will complete a 2-hour, self-paced online course, and then participate in a 4.5 to 5.5-hour, Instructor-led video conference If you are interested in attending please email [email protected] "Most of us would know how to help if we saw someone having a heart attack—we’d start CPR, or at the very least, call 9-1-1. But too few of us would know how to respond if we saw someone having a panic attack or if we were concerned that a friend or co-worker might be showing signs of alcoholism. Mental Health First Aid takes the fear and hesitation out of starting conversations about mental health and substance use problems by improving understanding and providing an action plan that teaches people to safely and responsibly identify and address a potential mental illness or substance use disorder. When more people are equipped with the tools they need to start a dialogue, more people can get the help they need. Mental Health First Aiders can even save lives."
Hi. I’m Aaron Parker. I like writing. I am publishing very short interesting subjects about Mental Health, science, poetry, quotes, all sorts really on Amazon through kdp. You can find them by typing the name ‘Aarontopia’ into the search bar on the Amazon website. They all have red and black covers. My idea is to charge the minimal amount per topic from kdp which is $0.99. Then when someone buys one then they can have an interesting conversation with their family, colleagues or friends. Then if they buy it instead of getting it free on kindle unlimited then every penny that Amazon pays me in royalties goes straight to a separate bank account in my name that I don’t use for myself but instead goes to UNICEF. So by someone spending less than £1 for a great conversation they can do some good to. Let’s help UNICEF. Let’s get people talking about Aarontopia:) Currently just over 100 topics published but adding more. Also please mention Earth Angel. That’s my book of quotes of Aaronosophies. Thank you!
