When I lived in New England, the three Western things I missed the most were sagebrush, hot springs, and the meadowlark, the latter esp. in the spring.
Now that I've been back for 6 years, I miss the cardinal AND the mockingbird, from back East! That's the first one I've heard in all of that time! Thank you very much. I am learning Lakotah from language tapes of elders, but I will also find the language info at the site you linked very interesting, too.
And, hey! You're quite a handsome fellow and you sure can whistle!**BG**
This has been one of the best and most interesting threads, IMO, in quite a while. Thanks, Susan-Marie, for asking. Thanks InOBU and Taskëmus, for sharing so much of interest.
Here's a few links you might enjoy:
AIROS-On-Line Indian Radio;
Native American Languages, which is from this main page;
and, you probably already know about these, but here they are just in case there is interest:
Indian Country Online;
< a href=www.indiancountrynews.com>Indian Country News;
and, Inidgenous Environmental Network
Hope I got those all correct. Thanks, again, ya'll.
