How kind of you to offer, and thanks for asking. I'd love to read your
article, and will be happy to publish it in Native Village. My next news
issue is planned for September. However, our house is up for sale, so if we
do sell, then I'll have to postpone publishing it for a couple months until
we move if you don't mind the wait. (Native Village is a personal project of
love created in my home office. Out of pocket. There's no one to fall back
on if I can't get things done, lol)
Johnny's photo, alone, shows part of his story. He is dancing from inside
himself, and one can almost feel the ancestors dancing beside and inside
Maybe this doesn't make sense, and I've never asked anyone this question
before, but while writing Johnny's article, did you feel that you were
writing from outside yourself and someone else helped guide the words? It's
just a feeling that came to me while looking at his photo.
Have a great day out there in sunny California.
In a message dated 6/7/2012 12:39:50 A.M. Eastern Daylight Time,
you...and I wonder if you could put something I wrote to good
an article on
Village offers two monthly p for News form Native California
which just went through a not real smooth change of editors.
They chose not to use anything the former editor had put
together. I am looking for a home for the article. Johnny is 20
years old, a tribal member of the Tule River Yokuts. He wants to
be the tribal chair when he is old enough, and he's known it
since he was a child. He is also a grass dancer and has been
clean and sober his entire life. His whole deal is about
inspiring youth to be themselves and be the best they can be.
the chance I can send you the article and the images we have to
got with it? I'm sening a picture I took of him in Bakersfield
just so you can get a feel for who he is.
