Welcome to the Tuesday meeting of the Coffee Hour here at the Street Prophets group. This is an open thread. I thought I’d start with a little Show-And-Tell. Below the squiggle thingy are some of the photographs which I recently took along the Columbia River in Oregon and Washington.
Shown above is the view of the Columbia River from the Maryhill Stonehenge in Washington.
For thousands of years prior to the European invasion, the Columbia River was both superhighway and supermarket for many different Indian nations.
Like most Indian people in North America, the Indian people along the Columbia River did not live in tipis, but often had permanent villages with houses known as longhouses (shown above).
When camping, the Indian people along the Columbia River often used mat lodges similar to that shown above. The lightweight mats were made out of tules.
This is an open thread. What interesting things have you seen recently (feel free to post pictures)? What have you been working on? What have you been thinking about? What’s for dinner?
