I was at a two day medical conference a few weeks ago getting caught up on my continuing education credits. Some of these can be done online, but some are required to be done in a group setting.

Thirty years ago, Anishinaabe teacher, Maryellen Baker, had a dream in which she was called to help to spread the Anishinaabe teachings with others. Her work began with creating a center for wellness, and has become more urgent as all of us have witnessed the pollution of the waters. Water is life, and it is the role of women to protect and bless the water, and the role of men to support us in that work.

I’ve been waiting for 45 to be impeached.   
Sigh. Been waiting too long like for the warm bus to show up at 4:45 am on a bigly blizzardy morning and save me from certain and complete poverty. No headlights in sight, cigarette is wet, no matches anyway. My diabetic nerve pain is flaring up and my earmuffs can’t drown out the horror of the current US administration’s war upon The People.

We lost another fluent Ojibwe speaker in “Amik” Larry Smallwood last week. Amik has forever been the emcee at powwows and other events and his voice and his sense of humor were familiar to anyone traveling the powwow circuit. When they heard his voice they knew they could call this place home, even if only for a little while. Skinny leg jeans, a Harley-Davidson jacket, cowboy boots, dark glasses and a cowboy hat worked to make him one of the coolest Indians anywhere.
