    I didn't think so. when I went through Basic training everyone wasn't sure which ethnicity I was. It was like a guessing game for them.

    While working at the bases i didn't notice i was treated differently by anyone except when I went to Germany, all the german housekeeps at our base were all excited to meet me. felt like a celebrity... ayyeee

      me? in iceland, they were thrilled when they found out what i was. maids at the barracks treated me great. that, and i let them borrow my jigsaw puzzles. :-)

      i tended to get into trouble because i couldn't quit telling the guys when they were doing something wrong. no problem if they told me. but my last command just didn't like women who stood up.

Part of that may have been...

        "Owl's Gift"

        Last night I was walking through a field with forest surrounding it. After a short while, I spied two giant Great Horned Owls soaring through the sky. They seemed a mated pair. Or actually I was told by my medicine.

        Suddenly the female dove at the male, and made him drop the kill he was...

        Would any one be willing to share some of their tribal myths or legends? When I was a kid growing up with friends and relatives we would always talk about things like not whistling at night, Little People, Deerwoman, etc., usually at night when we were outside playing, trying to scare one another....
