class! Is anyone able to come to presentations the last week of class?
I am leaving for Europe as a part of my final projection next week and
won't be returning until June 3rd which I do not feel gives me enough
time to prepare for a presentation on the 5th, however I am able to
give my presentaton on June 8th in the Longhouse on what I have been
doing the past two quarters. I will call my presentation Awakening.
also, does anyone (particularly the faculty) know where I can get a
full list of Evergreen credits? Please let me know . please email me at
Thanks, Salena Juanita

let people know what we've been up to and what people are presenting!
We need to go on the 1st of June, if thats possible allthough we know
that its for late people with extenuating circumstances. But thanks
everyone for a great year, and we hope to see you on tuesday!

Going For A Mind Walk - A
Pyschoanalysis of Myself
Ferrier - 08:04pm May 17, 2004 Bob
01, 2004 at 1:00 pm I would like to share, with anyone who is
interested in listening, my works over the year and the positive
results that came from it. I chose the subject "Going For A Mind Walk"
because it is exactly that; a year I spent analyzing myself to
understand my needs which weren't being met and the dangerous
consequences of avoiding problems. Starting with Pedagogy- Learning the
Language of Oppression and the internalizing effects it has. Native
American Testimony - Concepts of community and trust and the freedom in
which we alreadyhave and understanding the aatrocitieswhich this
country was founded. Non-Violent communication - Anger is just a
feeling with unmet needs and the ppsychologicaleffects of unfeelings
and statements that we use which imply the absence of choice, "have
to": "The only thing you have to do is die". And ending with a look
into my discovery of Pyschology and how educating myself on the
subject,including the material above, led me to discover my chronic
depression and neurosis. Although this will be a continuing education
for myself, without bieng forced to learn, this programs subtle
trickery gave us all the chance to think for ourselves. And through
this education I was really analyis myself - and a pattern evolved.
This pattern was my own influence, my unconcious which had been
suppressed and came out as an intervention that literally saved my

Evolution of a Culture and it's
Pliska - 01:12pm Apr 27, 2004
my name is Tony Pliska. I was hoping to give my presentation, on how a
culture evolves in reaction to a collection of simple rules and how the
citizens evolution is a response to this reaction, on May 6th. I'll be
leaving May 17th to go to the East Coast and back for 2 weeks, I've
never seen any states east of washington, and I think this will be an
excellent oppurtunity to see some of my ideas in person. But because
i'll be gone for the last part of the quarter is why i want an early
presentation. So yeah. Thank you.
Cultural Divide: Education,
Minorities, and Languages
- 11:23am May 9, 2004
everybody!!! I'm returning home to get a chance to present my topics to
you all in class. I would like to present JUNE 5th, because I only have
a limited time in the area (one week if that) and am anxious to see how
everyone else is going in their educational travels. Gary, I still
haven't heard about how you would like the rest of my work, so I will
assume I will bring the rest when I return home. I plan on doing
Powerpoint as well as a video if I can firue out how to combine them
both. What do I need to bring with me? Will be in Longhouse on the 5th?
Someone please shoot me an email at yahoo.com to let me know. Autumn
PS It's so HOT!
would like to present my work on thursday May 20th at 1:00 pm. Sort of
a discussion of some books I've read, my personal experiences and
hopefully questions and comments from other people.
Brave - 05:29pm Apr 5, 2004
last quarter I put up a category relating to evolution. I did not
anticipate that with so much time and resources my interests would
blossom so much and that I would learn so fast. That is a great thing,
of course! But, I am not particularily here to talk about that, I
wanted to talk about an integrated 'theory of reality'. At certain
levels of inquiry we have different subjects, respectively, explaining
the nature of the universe (whether in specific of wholistic detail).
For example physics, under the guide of empirical science notes how
reality works. The same could be said about many things, like biology
and other scinces. Philosophy as well does this, but under a different
level of inquiry. Philosophy may say that how can we prove, say, the
blowing of the wind when we cannot empirically prove the existence of
our own consciousness?
Typically the studies philosophy and
science seem to combat each other, yet they are both theories or
philosophies or reality. Of course they can be used together, which is
my point here when I say 'INTEGRATED theory of reality'.
should prove quite a task for the human race, but I argue that if we
can reconcile this break between these two past lovers (philosophers
and scientists) we can offer better aproaches to sustainability
environmentally, heath-wise, and mentally for the human race as well as
preserving bio-diversity around us.
How the heck are words in a
book going to make a difference in our environment? How can putting two
concepts together save the rainforest?
These are difficult
questions, but we all need an ideology to motivate us. We all are here
for an education. Let's say that if we can prove phenomenologically
that we exist and beyond that, that empirical science works and if we
can prove empirically that human beings are indeed phenomenological by
nature many great things can come to fruit.
If this is
accepted, philosophy will be back on the foreground,... but this is
only minor. People will learn to reframe their arguments about
politics, economics, their own personal relationships with a solid
understanding that we cannot force people to change when the two people
have conflicting theories of reality. Experience is what guides our own
phenomenologically developed theory of reality, not someone pointing
out all of our problems... or showing us some statistic...
This is almost a nice dedication to the ethos of this program!
Thanks Recognition faculty!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy these ideas.
Please comment if you have the motivation!
people may find it strange that I chose to
do a yearlong research project on death and dying. I was
with the idea at first, but that is one of the main reasons I wanted to
it, to get myself to a point where I was comfortable, and I hope that
beginning an open forum where people can learn about issues in
care and dying I can help facilitate a discussion on the subject.
I first dealth with the death of someone close
to me at age seventeen when my grandfather died of cancer. He and
grandmother lived in one side of a two family home next door to my
sister and I. As a child I spent a great deal of time with my
who I called Nana and Poppop, and we continued to have close
throughout my teen years. When my Poppop was diagnosed with
he opted to not begin standard chemotherapy and radiation treatments,
to stay at home on hospice care. It was very difficult for me to
his physical deterioration. He had always seemed larger than life
me and I was always convinced he knew everything, from vocabulary words
how to build an engine. He was a man of great pride and seeing him
to falter was crushing. I tried to spend time with him when I
but at 17 I had my own life and things to do. I have since wished
I had given him more of time, but he knew that I loved him and that is
is important. He died in September of 1997.
After my Poppop died I moved into an upstairs
bedroom of my Nana's house so she would not have to be
alone. In August of 1998 she had a heart attack, her
second, and was diagnosed with cancer. She also decided that she
did not want treatments, and she lived in her home with help from our
family and the local hospice. After I learned she was dying, I
knew I had to be near her because I did not want to regret the things I
hadn't done like I did after my Poppop died. I spent as
much time with her as I could almost everyday, I took her to doctors
appointments and I did erands for her. But the one thing I did
that was the most important to her was listen. She told me
stories about her childhood and about how she and my Poppop met.
She told me to write it down, because
I was the one who needed to write her history, but I didn't need to
it, I remembered every word. She told me that I was her best
and the only person she could talk to about dying. She
told me that she did not want to live anymore, because life without her
of sixty-four years was not worth living. She said "I don't want
exsist, I want to live, and this life, this place where I am right now
not living." Everyone else was uncomfortable hearing her
these things, but I let her speak. She died in March of
1999, and I can honestly say there is nothing I would do
differently. I gave much of myself to her because she needed me,
and that is what family is about.
This project is a tribute to my Nana and
Poppop. When they were dying they chose not to receive treatments
and not to be in pain. Nana and Poppop were both extremely strong
willed people, and even when the doctors pushed a little too hard for
treatment, they refused because it was not what they wanted.
Everyone should realize that they have this choice, that they can be
cared for at home by people who respect and love them. Dying does
not need to be an embarassing or undignified thing. We need to
take control of our lives and our medicine and begin to embrace every
cycle of life, even the end. I hope that this web page
has educated you on the issues and available options in end-of-life
