Last night we talked to the girls and learned that pretty much all of the girls we work with will have an Ishna Ta Awi Cha Lowan( Becoming A Woman) ceremony in the Lakota way. So much for all my pissing and moaning in the last post! Maybe I should stick to things I know instead of things I'm ignorant about.
e-qua yona, Cherokee for 'big bear' is the only nick name I've ever had, at least one I liked. One of my favorite ever students called me that when I taught for the Eastern Band Cherokee. It is Mato Tanka in Lakota.
I have lived a nomadic life and have enjoyed most of it so far.
Seeking balance with the universe or great mystery is what life oughta be about.
