My recent grocery list: honey, jalapenos, tortillas, bananas, eggs, butter n chz, tortillas chips, cinnamon bread and regurgitate (?) My friends were helping me shop and asked what was next on my list and read ‘regurgitate’. LMAO! O my the looks I got from them! After laughing I told them I wrote that word down because I wanted to use it in a future column. I carry around a little notepad because I have to jot down whatever is in my head at the moment or I lose it. It was so absurd that they both pulled their phones out and took a pic of my list. Since then my friends have not let it go, teasing me.

I was looking for an old truck someone had told me about and I thought I had the right place. She slowly stepped out of the house into the hot summer sun. She was thin and pale and I didn’t recognize her until she spoke.

Way to go Fond du Lac.  First you all throw us under the bus over a pipeline. All Minnesota Chippewa Tribes opposed the pipeline formally, but then, you went rogue on us.   We all sort of get it, after all it was a difficult decision, sort of a Sophie’s Choice decision forced upon you by the rogue Minnesota Public Utilities Commission approval of Line 3. Honestly, $250 million is a good selling price for a tribe, if you’re gonna take it.

The Iroquois mark the beginning of the new year during the seven day Midwinter Ceremony which begins five days after the first new moon following the winter solstice and when the Pleiades star cluster is overhead.  These stars are also called the Seven Dancers and mark the place of origin for Native people in this hemisphere which, in effect, makes us star people. But when winter is finally ready to let go its grip we look to the trees for the first signs of spring.
