    I see the Hopi pictures — and it made me think about these two posts that detail the LDS church's sad history with that tribe:
    Part 1:
    "What do Mormon land settlers, coal power plants, corruption and Native Americans have to do with each other? As it turns out, quite a lot. Add a dash of intrigue, attorneys and no small amount of greed and power (and the lusting after), and you end up with a story full of surprises."

    Part 2:
    "Quite by accident I came across this Hugh Nibley article, entitled 'Promised Lands'. [There is a] discussion on Mormons, Hopi and Mother Earth, which was discussed/written about here a little over a month ago [in Part 1]. I almost feel ashamed that I hadn’t originally thought to see if Nibley had ever discussed what happened between the Mormons and the Hopi, but alas I did not think of it. So, in re-stumbling upon this article, I was both excited and surprised to read what Nibley had to say on the matter."

    Great, Justin.. I'll check these out! . . .I was feelin' my native American roots today! Wearing mocassins this morning, and the tassels were getting wrapped around my bike pedals! (I am such a slave to fashion!) …….Last summer our family visited Mesa Verde……………so that's where I picked up the brochure. I think i had been wanting to blog it for awhile because I loved the diagrams, made me think of you Mormons, and your Gospel-Tribal idea. I think it was just the fact that they lived together, and the Kiva is a cool concept.

    They think that the inhabitants had to move on because of drought, and either over-farmed the land, and it was probably a low water year. . . .We just had that here in Texas. Memorial Park is closed today to clear out the dead trees.

    Hey, I just wanted to say, you don't have to comment on my posts everyday, but I'm glad that you do . . this was what I put together from yesterday, and also about that concept of materials. I'm trying to spring the ideas into life, but I'm not sure if it's working. I'm going to have to get more crafty for tomorrow. Better get going!

    I think it's best not t to set precedents…Pressure is not good for spontaniety. .

    Just trying to dream about where to head next..I think I'll go with practically nothing for tomorrow. . . some dead leaves and a princess story.

    I'm trying to make this like my new facebook update, have you noticed? I want to be able to express myself here like I do there, so that we can still discuss and with more people who may be outside that bubble . . . .really informal, though. Just say anything, please..GO AHEAD:::
