W2006- Reconciliation - ANNOUNCEMENTS

The saturday Reconciliation/Contracts "Theory to Praxis" group will not meet on April 8th.  Instead, choose from the following options:

*UW Native American Film Festival (attend 1 day or the whole event) April 6-8 at the Ethnic Cultural Center).  The poster was sent by email to you last week.

We will meet on April 22nd and report on our findings.  The spring quarter schedule also includes:  May 6th, May 20th, and June 3rd.

Students who have concluded their studies and have petitioned to graduate are invited to attend our June 3rd class because we want to send you outta here in style!!!  (Let me know if you can attend this gathering in the morning for breakfast and a short ceremony.  Stay for the full workshop if possible!)

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!"


I will also be presenting on Thursday. Please, please come if you can! It would be lovely to have an audience to captivate; I will bring tea or some such beverage. I will present whenever anyone else is done...or whatever, I am flexible.
Yvonne--I will bring my evals and also send them to you in email form.
Thanks for your time,

disorders such as ADD and dyslexia, among others.)

learning, memory, and conciousness that you care to
        Okay, hope thats not too confusing..and hope

Hello Yvonne,

       If I could have a spot on Tuesday, March 14th for my presentation, could we do our student-teacher eval session after that?

         I will be completing my work with Reconciliation this quarter.  I am thrilled to share Eastern Kentucky with you all that Tuesday. 

     I hope you all are finding your way to the end of the quarter.  Sharing our adventures should be a lovely time.

                 see you all soon!  -Colleen

Subject: [reconciliation] Hey Raul, Yvonne an David!

Hey Ya'll,
 Just wanted to reserve a slot for presenting on
tuesday the 14th, and also I was wondering if we could
meet sometime week 10 as i was hoping to travel on the
weekend before eval week.  Anytime tuesday works for
me, but if I need to pick a time 2ish would be great.
Thank you all for providing us with a program like
this, it has taught me so much and let me find
direction in my studies.  Please let me know if this
works for you. 
    Have a good week,
                 Seb Stratton-Clarke

I would like to have my presentation on thursday the ninth. Is this posible? Will accomodations for power point be available? Do I need to have a completed academic portfolio?

Wellll...happy valentine's day everyone!

I finally walked by the notice about "Genealogy-Genealogical Resources at the Washington State Library" that I referred to on saturday. It is a brown bag presentation with Heather Muller and Lynn Red on thursday (2-16-06) from 12:10 to 1:00 p.m. at the Washington State Library in Room 221.  The address is 6880 Capitol Boulevard South, Tumwater.  Heather and Lynn work at reference services at the Washington State Library.  This presentation is a quick overview of the genealogical resources available at your WSL.  Most of the collections focus on Washington State and Washington Territory.  They also talk about accessing national resources, such as Ancestry.com and Heritage Quest Online.

Can you believe we had saturday super-packed?  We had one more video by the group from the UW "The Border Crossed Us" and it would have been great to review because we now know a little bit about the process.

Enjoy the weather and talk to you soon.

Subject: a great opportunity to help New Orleans and your students
     Hey guys.I hope you are well. I have been out of the area for a while and recently had a chance to see Malik Rahim, an amazing man from New Orleans who helped found common ground relief(www.commongroundrelief.org). He gave a truly inspiring, shocking, sad, hopeful, and enlighteneing series of talks about the situation down there and what is being done in the community to improve it. I was really impressed with the track record of common ground and after really checking it out I am convinced it is the real deal. They are helping the most needy people out that everyone else seems to be trying to sweep under the rug. I have several friends who have gone down there and done volunteer stints who had life changing experiences and incredible stories to share. I am planning on going down myself in February.   
        The reason I am contacting you is that I know Malik is interested in reaching out to the Northwest and letting people know whats going on in New Orleans. He is hoping to give some talks out that way and I told him I would spread the word to Northwest peeps who make amazing things happen and bring people together. I thought you might be interested in having him come to class to speak or even better, see if any of the students might want to help organize a talk on campus that would reach a wider audience. I am including contact info in the hopes you might be interested in helping get the word out about a truly worthy cause. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask me. Also I hope to put togther a contact list for Malik for when he heads out that way. I figured I would put you guys on it, let me know if you do not want to be included in it.
  Malik Rahim
  Thanks for your time and all the work you do. Take care,

Subject: Class this Saturday JAN 28TH. ROOM 1050 LAB I
Marcella Ernest, a student in the University of Washington, Native Voices, Masters in Documentary Making, will be a guest in class this Saturday, the 28th.  She will do a workshop on recording events and people in tribal communities.  She will bring equipment they use, questioning approaches they use, and help us build a budget for equipment that could be submitted through tribal budgeting processes to make appropriate equipment available for use in tribal communities. 

We have used two of their documentaries in class and other places and they are excellent.  "Half of Anything" deals with questions of Indian identity, raising the question, What is a real Indian?  "100 years of Genocide" deals with sex abuse issues in Boarding schools in Canada.  It includes footage of the canoe journeys and healing.  Marcella is working on a documentary on the Indian Child Welfare Act.

If you are interested in documenting tribal people, events, and history or need to make up hours from missed classes other places, you are welcome to come.  We are on campus at Evergreen, Lab I, room 1050.  We startat 9am and Marcella will present at 11am.  All you have to bring is your sparkling personality.   Hope to see some of you you there.

We are receiving via email or Web Crossing your mid term report. It can include your plan for the year in whatever stage it is (tentative to definite). If you need to conference with us please attend community visiting time on tuesday or thursday, or set up a meeting.
