Lichens Used by Navajo Weavers
Navajos began weaving sometime before Spaniards came to the new world. Juan de Onate introduced Churro sheep to the New World. Their wool took dye easily, and it was perfectly suited for the robes and bedding needed to protect the Navajo from the bitter cold of the desert winter. The dyes used by Navajo weavers then were mostly from plant matter, ranging from tree roots, bark and nuts, to native shrubs, grasses and lichen. A single ground lichen is used by the Navajo as a dyeing agent. It is known formally as Xanthoparmelia chlorochroma.
Officer investigated for ‘drunk uneducated animals’ comment
A Royal Canadian Mountain Police officer is under investigation for referring to Native people as “drunk uneducated animals.”
The RCMP would not identify the officer who made the comments on Facebook in response to a news story about a shooting on the Sucker River Reserve, which is part of the Lac La Ronge First Nation in Saskatchewan. But Native users shared a screenshot that indicated Anthony Setlack, who works for the force, posted the derogatory remarks on Monday.
They wouldn’t say “Father of two meets world leaders today.”
They’d say “President Obama meets world leaders today.”
They wouldn’t say “Father of three founds one of the most successful modern computer businesses.”
They’d say “Bill Gates founds one of the most successful modern computer businesses.”
