America's best read urban weekly | Learn More »
Wow...must have been on point if this article created such emotion in the comments. I take adolescents to this area and they fall in love with this place...no cell phones no games but a beautiful place to experience themselves to reconnect to nature. The thing about tribal knowledge is that it is not written down, it is experienced. The information non natives want to understand is captured in the beadwork, the paintings, the woodwork, the memories of the people through what non natives identify as art work...that is how our history is passed down generation to generation since we have been.
Any human being can understand that to reconnect with the natural world is like a cell phone recharging... We need to energize ourselves with the trees, the bushes, the clean air, the ground...if we are lucky we can see the wildlife too. What is so wrong protecting that? If you have ever had the opportunity to see a native american ceremony n connection to the land it is about honoring the work creation does and celebrating all living things and giving thanks for the beauty the wisdom and to ask if we can humbly request more of this beautiful creation to continue.
So no none of what you seek to know more of is not sited in any books neither here nor there...but try for the sake of your grandchildren to save them a little bit of heaven... And really if poop collectors stay away from Mount Spokane that's all right by me, just means more fertilizer for new growth.
