Bat Goddess BS: Acoma Pueblo and Historical Insight (10) RE: BS: Acoma Pueblo and Historical Insight 22 Jun 21

A couple months ago I finally got around to reading Edward Abbey's book "Desert Solitaire". When I finished it I decided to move just a bit south from the Arches area in Utah to the Navajo country of Four Corners —— decided to binge re-read in order all the Tony Hillerman Navajo Tribal Police mysteries. So I've been immersed in Southwestern culture and history for over a month now.

Also read Hillerman's memoirs and his book of short non-fiction and I'm partway through one of the two books I have of historical and literary background to his writing.

"The Spanish were the extreme villains of their day with an extermination of the savages point of view, in the name of god." Seems to me the white man was attempting the same thing, but in the name of Mammon. Sorry the First Nation people in the region have to look on the official names of mountains, etc. named after men who tried their damnedest to obliterate them.
