Stories of Reservation Life lie with People
by Dorreen Yellow Bird

      One of the residual affects of having the 24-hour god awful flu is that I 
had time to stare out my bedroom window and watch the snow 
melt on the rooftops. So, with time on my hands, some of the issues that I have 
struggled with this year bounced
around in my brain. For example: Are we Native people really the pitiful 
stereotypes that I keep reading in the news?
A Message from Robert Redford on Threats to our Environment
by Robert Redford

       Americans voted for many things this past Election Day, but one thing we 
did not vote for was a sweeping attack on our environment. 
Yet President Bush is already acting as if we did.
       If you don't have time to read my letter, then please go straight to the 
BioGems website at http://www.savebiogems..org/takeaction.asp  
and send messages to your U.S. senators and representative telling them to 
stand up in defense of our environment.
Smallpox .... a return of a deadly killer
by Kasey Wolf Weaver

       Just the other day I received an email from an online friend that they 
had found disturbing. It was in regards to the government's 
push towards promoting the smallpox vaccine. This particular one was pushing it 
towards healthcare workers. As healthcare
professionals, we are exposed to many nasty things. I've been inoculated 
against several
and get annual tests to see if I have been exposed to others. Smallpox is not 
something new.
Don't Take Away My Rights
by Vicki Lockard

       Well, folks, Dubya has done it again, and again. What am I talking

admittance policies and the re-nomination of Charles Pickering, as a judge for 
the U.S. Court of Appeals. I'm really talking about the
administrations wishy-washy attitudes and it's flagrant disregard for Civil 
Enviro-Rants >From an All Natural Soapbox
by Jamie Lockard

       Dude! You're getting a recycled environmentally tolerated Dell! Got a 
cracked computer monitor or a hard drive that has stopped cold? 
Don't be too quick to discard them until you've considered the options to trade 
in, upgrade, auction off or donate the unwanted equipment.
       That's the logic Dell Computer, PC market leader, is applying to the 
still fledgling computer recycling business: Turning a potential public 
relations liability into a new product marketing opportunity.
Children's Games - Part One
by Lynne A Pennington
>From our ancestors to the present day children have been taught life skills, 
>survival and social and physical development through games 
they learn.
Some games involve the thinking processes while others may concern eye and hand 
coordination. Although some of the dice games can 
be considered gambling it is more involving math. Over the next few issues I 
will talk of many different games and include
instructions on how to play them. Below is the list I will be going in this
