I absolutely love this, lol. I for one very much agree with the wisdom that sheep are life, especially this time of year!
I would love to learn to weave in the tradition of the Navajo people.

Thanks very much for posting this!!!

Wow :shock: You probably know, Thermlin, that Buddhist monks also get into this type of art.

Hau mitakuye,
Came across this image in local press.
:idea:
Honour to the Elders
Don't know the artist, the subject ,or the article but almost certainly done by european'hand.

Cleopatra is rather an odd name for an indian princess,don't you think?

Thermlin,Thanks for posting the picture of that Indian man.It is a picture of my ancestor Pamunkey- Powhaten Chief Opechancanough Mangopeesomon.He was married to Cleopatra, sister of Pocahantas and half brother of Wahunsenaugh (Cleopatra's and Pocahantas' father) also known as Chief Powhaten.Opechancanough was responsible for the abduction of Capt.John Smith in 1608 and the massacre of 1622 in Jamestown Virginia known as The Good Friday Massacre.He treated Smith well in captivity even though Smith said he wasn't good to him.Around 1646 he died ,while in captivity ,when he was around 90 or so years,got shot in the back by a English soldier.He couldn't stand the English.His people loved him so much that his death marked the beginning of the third and final Anglo-Powhaten War.Jennifer

to add to what Jennifer reported of the east coast people and that the Lost Colony has been studied and reported lately, there is a book called The Most Ironic Story In American History, written in early 60s? by Lew Barton(Lumbee)

Thermlin,Yes Cleopatra is an unusual name for an Indian woman.John Rolfe,Pocahantas husband named her that because he was fascinated with Egyptian Cleopatra of the Nile.It was a nickname that stuck.Cleopatra's real name is unknown. Jennifer

Grey Owl is a case in point.
When asked, he said that his father was Scottish and his mother Apache.
