      Finished reading Magic Knights Rayearth volumes 1-3 and now I'm reading The Weekend was Murder! by Joan Lowery Nixon.

      I'm also waiting for some books to come in at the library for me to pick up. I haven't been to the library in about a week and I miss it I'm a library addict

        I'm curious if anyone has read "Disrobing the Aboriginal Industry: The Deception Behind Indigenous Cultural Preservation" by Frances Widdowson and Albert Howard? It's been recommended to me by a friend and from reading the reviews I'm wondering if I wasted my money. I appreciate others thoughts on this. Thanks :)

                    I should add that it's by James Patterson and it's hard to put down. A quick read though...gotta limit myself to 3 short chapters a night.

                        4)Beginning guitar. (instructional book)(reading it is the easy part getting my hands to cooperate is a different story)
                        sigpic<--- I'm not Short I'm fun sized.

                          Faces From The Land

                          National Geographic article:
                          .
                          http://newswatch.nationalgeographic....d_in_pictures/
                          .
                          Ben Marra, a Seattle commercial photographer, and his then new bride, Linda, attended their first powwow in 1988. Ben had been commissioned by a printing company to make a photograph to showcase the color quality of the company’s latest printing capabilities.


                          They hit upon the idea of photographing an American Indian, a descendant of the first people to call the state of Washington home. This led them to a powwow at a rural school–and a decades-long passion that has taken the Marras to powwows across North America.

                          In their latest book, “Faces From the Land: Twenty Years of Powwow Tradition” (Harry N. Abrams, Inc; $30; April 2009), Ben and Linda Marra have assembled scores of vibrant portraits of dancers in ethnic costumes old and new, each one accompanied by a personal narrative. The common theme in both pictures and words is palpable pride in a sacred heritage that thrives.

                          “On the Great Plains our major musical road is traditionally expressed by a community ceremony called a powwow,” writes George P. Horse Capture in the foreword of “Faces From the Land.”

                          The senior counselor to the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. adds that it is said that the original Narragansett word for powwow meant “medicine man.” Since then it has undergone many intepretations and means much more than today.

                          “To more deeply understand the dance one must understand the culture,” he writes. “Long ago there was no formal police department to protect society. Protection had to be provided by the Indian societies themselves. So the tribes developed a warrior class, whose main duties were to protect the tribe.

                          “When successful they were honored by their communities, reenacting their exploits accompanied by society songs while bedecked in special attire.

                          “This spiritual ceremony quickly spread from the Omaha tribe to the Sioux and beyond, and evolved into the powwow.”

                          Although Ben Marra shoots action-oriented dance scenes, the couple considers these portraits their signature work. Both the dancing photos and the portraits are published in annual calendars which help raise powwow awareness and raise funds for Native American youth groups.


                          .
                          “The outfit I wear was given to me by my father,” says Ardell Scalplock, a Siksika powwow dancer. “My dad and I traveled to many powwows and he always taught me to have a kind word for everyone we meet. I’ve tried my best to make my dad proud, and I hope his legacy will always be carried on through me and my children.”

                              Nice link AmigoK!

                              I'm reading "The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales" by Oliver Sacks. It's a great compilation of the true stories of a neurologist's strangest, and most intriguing, patients. It's a bit of a challenging read, but well worth it.
