Tight, gripping, intriguing. Powerful, in-your-face characters. The mystery is set within an aboriginal community. That is the educational part. we have not had that much exposure to modern day aboriginal life and this show takes you there — in spades. Reminds me, very much, of the Navajos and life in and around my beloved Canyon de Chelly. The male detective is ‘BLACK’ — i.e., an aborigine. That gives it all a nice twist. He has a colorful past too.
We have only watched the first 4 episodes. But, they were good. I can’t wait to go back and finish the series. I think I will not be disappointed.
The Diary Of Anne Frank
My heart goes out to these folks. Yes, we do try to be careful.
Life is but an adventure ….
They, i.e., the Navajo living in and around the ‘Navajo Nation‘, have always been more vulnerable than most. Yes, some of it is their own making, but we are where we are. These folks rely on the Federal Government for many aid programs — even for clearing some of their major roads of snow during the winter.
This shutdown is really doing a number on them, but it goes unreported and unnoticed outside of Arizona and New Mexico because they have no media savvy. They basically have no voice.
There are quite a few Navajo working at ‘Canyon de Chelly‘ and ‘Monument Valley‘ — some as Park Rangers. They are not getting paid. That has a huge trickle down affect as many people rely on these federal salaries. Without that money, they are penniless. This is not good. This is sad.
I gather that ‘Canyon de Chelly’ remains open — in that both of the Rim roads are public thoroughfares and as such need to be kept open. Not sure how much snow they have had. If it has been dry the lookouts will be usable. Hate to think how much illegal trespassing is going on at the bottom. Upsets me greatly.
Just wanted to make sure you knew. So many don’t.

I am not sure whether this is a new exhibit or whether it never fully registered with me previously. We go to the ‘Museum of Science‘ at least thrice a year, and have done for years and years. So, not much I haven’t seen.
But, I saw this yesterday. I knew what it was as soon as I saw it. Reading the accompanying sign only confirmed what I knew.
Neat. But, I am not 100% happy with the depiction. They seemed to have it garbled. It was unlikely to have been a ruin, in such disrepair, when folks were still living there! So, don’t call it ‘the ruins’ and show people still climbing it with ladders.
Also doesn’t explain why it is called the ‘White House‘. Yes, you can just about see the white building at the back. They believe it was painted white to reflect heat.
Well I have a LOT of posts on this blog about this ‘White House‘.
So, if you are interested just do a search on ‘White House Canyon‘.
If you are in the Northeast try and stay warm. It is cold.
There is nothing that says you shouldn’t THINK at Thanksgiving. If anything it is a good time to THINK. You can’t be THANKFUL unless you THINK.
At some point please make a point of giving THANKS that you still can THINK.
I just got the November 2018 issue today and only had time to quickly scan through the article and BEAUTIFUL photos.
It is a topic dear to my heart since I have seen, first hand, this year, as to what is happening to TRIBAL LANDS.
The “Bad Ol’ Days” are back again with the Indians, yet again, with their backs to the wall.
My concern was what was happening at Canyon de Chelly.
The NatG article is mainly about Utah and “Bears Ears“.
Please try to read this article. Hence, this post. Thank YOU.

Continuing the series. This is the second overlook on the South Rim — that being the more visited Rim. You can clearly see the river bed and one farm. This was was greenest part of the Canyon this year.
