what to wear when…in an ojibwe fairy tale.

examples: mamaandaa-akikoog (the magic pots), anang zazegaa-ikwe (the star maiden), wenabozho gaa-kiishkigwebinaad zhiishiiban (when wenabozho decapitated the ducks)

known as the aadizookaanan (“traditional stories,” singular aadizookaan), they are told by the debaajimojig (“storytellers”, singular debaajimod) only in winter in order to preserve their transformative powers. nanabozho (also known by a variety of other names and spellings, including wenabozho, menabozho, and nanabush) is a trickster figure and culture hero who features as the protagonist of a cycle of stories…nanabozho could be selfish or generous; cowardly or brave; caring or spiteful; always curious and mischievous and often his own worst enemy…aayaash [is] an epic hero who defeats many monsters and changes the form of humans and animals to make life better…in most ojibwe stories, pukwudjininees (the little people of the forests) are portrayed as mischievious but generally good-natured beings…mishibizhiw (underwater panther) [is a] cross between a cougar and a dragon. it is a dangerous monster who lives in deep water and causes men and women to drown. misiginebig [is] an underwater horned serpent, common to the legends of most algonquian tribes…chakabesh [is] a folk hero of cree and northern ojibwe mythology, sometimes referred to as the man in the moon. he is usually depicted as a dwarf. in some ojibwe stories, chakabesh acts in a rash or foolish way, especially tending to ignore the good advice of his older sister, but he is brave and good-hearted and never stays in trouble for long.

post 810 of an infinity-part series

#”the serious narratives about culture and history [are] interwoven with a thread of humor…from their original homelands on the atlantic    #coast of the united states the ojibwe and other algonquian tribes had been migrating westward for centuries before european contact. the    #spiritual and economic rationales for this radical change in demographics are still well-documented in the oral tradition of the ojibwe.”    #”a windigo [is] an evil man-eating spirit. windigos play the roles of monsters and bogeymen in some chippewa tales;    #in others chippewa people who commit sins (especially selfishness gluttony or cannibalism) are turned into windigos as punishment.”

The Clay to Bronze Sculpture of Devon Dorrity

In life you have to make choices as to where you spend your time.  Each minute you spend on one activity takes away from another.  Finding a balance that allows you to keep your sanity and create memories and a legacy that you can be proud to pass on is the great challenge we all face.  Our time is short, so choose wisely, prioritize and help others along the way.  For only they will remember you when you are gone.

A very good way of going about explaining this issue. It’s good to see something positive come from Tumblr.

live to ride

how did bikers ever get the reputation of being fearsome. Everything I’ve ever heard about them is always rides for charity, helping stray animals, telling kids to stay in school and doing cute shit like this and generally being nicer than 90% of the population.
