    this bibliography you shared with the community. Thank you so much for doing so, Ojibwa. I have about a third of these works in my library, read others, and of course anything having to do with "Zuni" is fascinating reading. I bought all sorts of jewelry from the tribal people for my former girlfriend, then I got old, she traded me in for someone young, and we're still the best of friends. And she still wears the jewelry. HA! Anyway, you really did the diary a favor by suggesting these works and I know I speak for all those who read the diary.

        RiveroftheWest. I really don't know how to respond. But I can tell you as a life-long educator it helps to humble one's self and approach to teaching and sharing cultural practices and traditions with others. Thus a gentler, kinder approach when disseminating anything having to do with history, race, culture and creed. I have also been honored to share friendships with so many different people representing many different cultures and traditions. . .all of which is based on trust. I have never counted my life's blessings by anything associated with materialism, but by spirit and the lessons learned from the heart. Sometimes I think I am the most fortunate stranger in a strange and wonderful land, the Southwest, and someone who came here many, many years ago knowing nothing about the land, let alone the people; and someone who more or less had his life to live in a new way of learning and unlearning that has enriched me in ways I still cannot fathom. My bailiwick as an educator, this vast landscape where I have walked thousands of miles, these thousands of people I have interacted with. . .this, for me, denotes a generous and forgiving heart's way of being. Thanks for posting your comment. It is very much appreciated.

          you've walked on and the people you've known. It's part of you; I wish more of us could share that sort of wisdom and peace -- we need it.
