    I'm reading Dana Lone Hill's A Week in the Life of a Rez Chick. I'm fifteen pages in I keep startling the cat by busting out laughing: "...bigger players than a whole drum group...", "...ladies related to everyone for 'maximum wateca exposure'....", "don't pet Wahumpi...." It's been ages since I've heard anyone described as gigi.

    I know the Developer System by Keil for the Intel 80XXX and using C.
    Not so bad a book to read. Well, not as easy as Tom Clancy's Sum of all fears.

    I stayed up half the night reading Bringing Home Columbia, about the space shuttle recovery efforts in east Texas in 2003.

    When the shuttle broke up over north Texas, I was in the parking lot outside our research machine shop. It was a Saturday morning and I was checking on the large scale diamond flycutting machine, which had been cutting a large prism array for two days and had two more days to go. I heard a boom as I got out of the car and saw a couple streaks of fire cross the sky. I thought it was a meteorite and just went into work. I never even connected it with the shuttle.

    I just finished re-reading: The Unquiet Grave : The FBI and the Struggle for the Soul of Indian Country by Steve Hendricks and Ultraprecision Machining of Hybrid Freeform Surfaces Using Multiple-Axis Diamond Turning by Dennis Neo Wee Keong.

    I'm waiting for my copy of A Journey to Freedom: Richard Oakes, Alcatraz, and the Red Power Movement by Kent Blansett. I had hoped to get it Friday but it's late :(

    Aram Mattaioli
    Verlorene Welten (Lost Worlds)
    Eine Geschichte der Indianer Nordamerikas ( A history of North American Nations)

    Think there is no English verison. You can find comments in English on that book. A very well written book which leaves no doubt.

    Just got and started to read and look:

    Pehin Hanska Kasota
    Rubbing out Long Hair

    The American Indian story of the Littlr Big Horn in Art and Word

    by Col. ret. Rodney G. Thomas

    Insightful, balanced text and g´reat great pictures of the ledger art.

    He recognices and emphases the ledger drawings as beeing great art (skills of the artists) and a way of transportation of historal truth and more which have long been not recognized as it should have been.

    That remembers me of an old coworker of dad who a wig when a wind gust lifted his wig. After that he went with bald head.

    David Treuer has his way of humor.

    There is only one way the keep from getting older. I don't recommend it.

    I fully support his saying and view of obiuatry.
    He knows to think and argue on what matters.

    OK [MENTION=236688]Broken Arrow[/MENTION], time to let the Indians come into modernity for a while. They're missing pizza and Facebook, LOL.

    I have a recommendation for you. It will let Native people get to today:

    David Treuer, The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee: Native America from 1890 to the Present, Riverhead Books, 2019.

    Book TV: David Treuer talking about The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee

    I really like what he says in the beginning before he reads from his book.

    You can hear the author talk about his book.

    Book TV: The Killing of Crazy Horse
    Luckily, that book is available at a seller in the US who delievers to Germany and is lower priced for a new pocket book with tranpsort fees than a used paperback offered in Germany. (20 € againts 70 €)

    Thank you for the Video Links. A lot to browse and find.
