Rare "Strawberry Moon" tonight 6/20/16

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…

Veterans groups object to being dragged into Trump-Fox feud

By Rebecca Kheel - 01/28/16 05:11 PM EST

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.

Instead of participating in Fox's GOP debate Thursday night, Trump is holding a separate campaign event that he promised would benefit veterans groups.

Fall recipe ~Pretty Pumpkin Pudding

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

3 tablespoons sugar

Native Americans May Have Traveled To Easter Island

by Clayton Browne

October 24, 2014

A new study published in Cell Biology on October 23rd points to strong genetic evidence that native Americans traveled to Easter Island six or seven hundred years ago. The study undertook a genome-wide analysis of 27 native Rapanui, and confirms significant contact between the natives of Easter Island and Native American peoples sometime between AD 1300 and AD 1500, around 19 to 23 generations ago.

Of note, the Rapanui population did… Continue

Columbus Day 2014 Becomes Indigenous Peoples’ Day, Critics Call Idea ‘Stupid’ Political Correctness

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.

In a related report by The Inquisitr, if you want to see what businesses are open or closed on Columbus Day 2014, check…

Native American Winter Solstice Celebration

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…

Why Should We Keep Tribal Languages Alive?

Why Should We Keep Tribal Languages Alive?

Sonny Skyhawk

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…
