Subject: Update and Presentation Date
Greetings! I know I've not really been in touch much, and I hope that's been
ok. I've been very active and busy with many things! I am excited to give my
presentation for the year. I absolutely MUST give it on Tues, June 6, week
10, whatever time is available. I am moving to Eugene at the end of May, and
so need to coordinate my presentation with moving, work, and event schedule!

Could I please present June 1st at 3 p.m.?  My presentation will be on 
theories of psychology
as I have studied them this year, mostly over 
the internet, and also theories and practice of sales, primarily real 
estate, as I got my license and began to practice it this year.   I'll 
show how these two fields merge together to help me function better as 
a human being living in a social world.

Subject: [reconciliation] My Presentation - May 2nd

Hey everyone!

On Tuesday, May 2nd, I (Javier) am going to be making my final presentation.

My presentation is going to be of an interesting method that I read about
this year.  This method takes into account a person's past experiences and
inner motivations; Using that data, it is possible to clarify for each
person the type of work that is fulfilling.

It, literally, changed my life and I am looking forward to sharing it with
the class.

Subject: THIS FRIDAY: Tlingit One-Woman-Show in Longhouse at TESC

Hi there, everyone!
     I wanted to extend an invitation to all to attend an
event in the Longhouse at TESC this Friday, April 7.  We will begin the
evening with a performance by local Skokomish singers and drummers.  The
night's feature is a one-woman show written and performed by Diane Benson, a
Tlingit woman hailing from Southeast Alaska. THE EVENT IS FREE OF CHARGE.
     An acclaimed poet, playwright and actress, Diane has performed "Voicing
Tribal Women" locally in Alaska as well as nationally, including this past
month at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC.  This
piece features "When My Spirit Raised Its Hands," a true tale of Native
Civil Rights in the 1940s through the lens of Elizabeth Peratrovich, a
Tlingit forerunner of native women taking a stand against oppression.  Diane
portrays other characters with a quick wit, along with an underlying message
that gives voice to the Native woman's perspective in the crazy world we
live in today.
     Please join us in the Longhouse at Evergreen from 6pm-9pm and help us
out by spreading the word!  Do not hesitate to email us back with any
questions or just give us a ring at 360.867.6105.
Gunalscheech ("Thank you" in Tlingit),
Cary Jensen Turkon

April 8th Pow-wow in honor of Judith Quill at Tacoma Community College, Building 11, Grand Entry at 1:00 and 7:00 p.m.  Drummers, Dancers, Vendors are welcome!

As I mentioned to one of you in an earlier email - "I'm sorry we didn't get to decide about this saturday and class.  I've had more people say it would have been good for closure...to talk about our quarter, say good-by in a formal way, have a few good belly laughs, and talk about our plans for spring quarter.  Well, thats one of the things that I learn is people really do mean it when they say - this is my family, my community, my haven!"
