The Royals Prince Phillip & Kate Middleton by C.W. Cooke

Qoutes from Press Release by Bluewater Productions

As a global audience anticipates the wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton, the biography comic book and graphic novel from Bluewater Productions highlighting their romance is set to hit shelves tomorrow— Wednesday April 27th—two days day in advance of the nuptials.

“The Royals: Prince William & Kate Middleton” written by CW Cooke and penciled by Pablo Martinena, looks to give context to two perceived fairy tale lives and how an eight-year romance flourished in such a fishbowl existence.

“This has been one of Bluewater’s most anticipated biography books,” said Darren Davis, president of Bluewater, “Fans of the royal couple will love this issue for portraying William and Kate as two well-rounded and grounded individuals. But it also has enough pomp and spectacle to match the excitement surrounding the event.”

"Circle Of Life" Series Hosted By Trish Knox

Mike Evans

"I am didahalqid (Michael C. Evans), Snohomish.  My deceased mother's name is Laverne Cooper-Evans.  She was the great granddaughter of Mary Jane (Cooper) and John Cooper." 
Mike Evans was born and raised in Port Angeles, WA.  Mike is Chair of the Snohomish Tribe of Indians, Small Tribes of Western Washington and the Blue Heron Canoe.  He is a board member of the Duwamish Tribal Services, Western Washington Indian Employment and Training Program and the Longhouse Heritage Foundation.
Mike is skipper of the Blue Heron Canoe and author of Life In A Canoe.  Here is one of his stories:
What About My Paddle?
You can bad mouth others in the canoe family and I can let it go.  You can bad mouth me and I may be able to tolerate it.  This man did both.  When this man could not get to me, he then bad mouthed my paddle.  That was the final straw.
With most of the anger under control this man was confronted and firmly asked to stop it.  He did.  After the Journey we went our separate paths.  It was several years before we could greet each other with a handshake and say hello.

Airing January 31, 2010


Circle of Life


Native/Indigenous Elders have many gifts to give their communities. One of these gifts is their personal journey around the circle of life that can be mapped from the East of childhood to the South of adolescence to the West of adulthood and to the North of elderhood. These circular threads weave a rich basket that makes each elder unique and valuable. Circle of Life ~ A Storytelling Basket is a framework that supports Elders in giving their gifts of stories.

Elder stories are being told via the Circle of Life ~ A Storytelling Basketradio series that is part of Lady Selah's (Ojibwe Nation) Storytellers Campfire radio program. Listen for us Sunday evenings, 6-7 PM PST on Alternative Talk 1150 AM. Mike Evans was our first guest on the Circle of Life series.

Elder Alma Chastain, Lummi and
Yakima Nation


Alma Chastain was born July 27, 1927 on the Lummi Indian Reservation. She has five children: Billie Alcayaga/retired vet, Seattle Police; Michael Alcayaga/Seattle Times; Chris Chastain/Seattle Indian Health Board, Elders Program Manager; Theresa Chastain Moore/nurse; Venice Chastain/Seattle Indian Health Board, Perinatal Outreach Specialist. Alma has 11 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. Indian activism has been a major part of Alma?s life following in the footsteps of her mother and grandmother.

Alma worked as an outreach worker at Seattle Indian Health Board; attended nurse training at Chemawa Indian Hospital in Tacoma; took cosmetology classes to have a beauty shop in her home until she learned about the chemical hazards; waitressed and worked in a nursing home.

Alma retired from the Seattle Indian Health Board in 1977. She and her husband then travelled with their CJ Silversmith business selling silver and turquoise jewelry at powwows and Indian organizations. Alma also attended church, supported PTA, was a charter member of the American Women?s Service League and liked to dance with the Northwest Indian Tribal Dance Club.

In 1970 Alma participated in the planning and action of the takeover of Fort Lawton. She and her children climbed over the fence, were put in the stockade and were part of the Indian invasion that reclaimed a small part of their land according to the Pt. Elliott Treaty. At that time the principal organizer Bernie Whitebear stated, ?We, the Native Americans, reclaim the land known as Fort Lawton in the name of all American Indians by right of discovery.? United Indians of All Tribes is celebrating this 40 anniversary in March 2010.

In 2008 Alma received the Inspire Positive Aging award through Senior Services. She has a glass candy dish with a dragonfly and the words, ?You Inspire Us.? Alma?s inspiration comes from talking to God every day of her life.

Alma, Storytellers Campfire radio program and Circle of Life series thank you for sharing your story with us!



The Path of a Peace Elder

By Anna Halla, Tlingit/Kaasoot Elder

I lived in 38 foster homes. At the approximate age of six I was in yet another abusive home. I was struck in the head with a hammer by the foster parent. I ran off into the woods and ended up at a creek. After laying on the edge of the creek an elderly person spoke to me. She saw that I was injured and told me that she would be right back.

Upon her return she had plants in her hand and she spoke what I thought were prayers because I didn?t understand her language. She then placed the plants on my forehead where I had been struck. She continued with her prayers for a while and when she removed the leaves from my forehead there was the piece from the hammer. She placed that in the creek and bathed my forehead with creek water. She then said more prayers.

Then she started asking me questions in English and I answered them. She asked me what it was that was troubling my heart. I told her about my dream of squares and half circles. I didn?t understand why I had to have the same dream night after night after night. She suggested that I go home and pray with intention to understand the dream. I did so.

The next morning I awoke but I still had that same dream and no answer. I then made my way down to the creek once again and sat watching the fish. Within a short time she appeared once again. I told her that I didn?t get an answer to my dream. Once again she told me to pray; this time with more intention.

That evening I prayed with as much intention as I could bring forth and repeated that prayer until I fell asleep. I awoke one happy girl because that answer did come! My square and half circles joined. The answer was ?I am to see with my heart, I am to hear with my heart, I am to feel with my heart, I am to speak with my heart.? And in that way I will be able to live in the two worlds.

The squares represent the dominant society. You go to a square school, sit at a square desk, have a square book, and after a few years you get a square piece of paper. The Sacred Hoop teachings were outlawed by the dominant society thus breaking the hoop in half. Uniting the half circles and the square brings understanding one to another.
