Break out your telescope, and bring a picnic dinner, because Monday night is set to be spectacular for stargazers. We're set to see the first Strawberry Moon to line up with the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, since 1967.
According to The Old Farmer's Almanac, it's called the Full Strawberry Moon because Algonquin tribes saw it as a signal to start gathering ripe fruit. In Europe, it was known as the Full Rose Moon, or the Honey Moon because June is a popular wedding…Continue

Veterans groups say Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is disrespecting those who served in the military by using their plight in his ongoing rivalry with Fox News.

I think I'll try this one for Thanksgiving!
Pretty Pumpkin Pudding
Use a small to medium size pumpkin. Clean out the insides so you can bake the pudding in the shell. You might want to save and roast the seeds for a later treat. The pudding is pretty cooked like this and makes a nice presentation, but you can use a greased baking dish instead.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
6 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons sugar
¼ teaspoon salt

One of the very proponents of an American Indian Day was Dr. Arthur C. Parker, a Seneca Indian, who was the director of the Museum of Arts and…Continue

Columbus Day 2014 has jump-started a political debate over whether or not it is more appropriate to celebrate Native Americans or the European explorer Christopher Columbus. While two cities have already answered that question by creating the so-called “Indigenous Peoples’ Day,” critics are already labeling the decision as “stupid” political correctness in action.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, if you want to see what businesses are open or closed on Columbus Day 2014, check…Continue

No matter what our spiritual beliefs, or what part of the world we live, we all share the turning of the sun on the solstices. Winter Solstice on December 21 is the shortest day of the year for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. After the Winter Solstice, each day becomes longer until the longest day of the year arrives around June 21st.
Honoring the solstice is something lost to most of us, and it feels deeply meaningful, in a mystical sort of way, to choose to make a glimmer of…Continue

Why Should We Keep Tribal Languages Alive?
I can't stress enough the importance of retaining our tribal languages, when it comes to the core relevance or existence of our people. Our languages can teach us many things through daily use. Language can teach us respect, for ourselves and each other, our elders, women and most importantly, the things that allowed us to exist. Our children deserve nothing less than to have inherited their own language. You could argue that…
