Happy Thursday !!! Did I throw you off with those questions? It was all in fun and games heehee! I did say I was going to surprise you...Raffi got every answer right !!! Congrats Raffi!

In honor of our U.S military...Today I'm going to talk about Navajo Code Talkers. They are from the Navajo nation...

In U.S history the things that happened to us Native Americans were tragic.Invaders and settlers took most of our lands and misunderstood our culture and killed us in the thousands.
Then during World War 2 ,the U.S goverment needed our Navajo Brothers to help.And though they suffered greatly from this same government our Navajo brothers proudly answered the call to duty.

Communication is very essentialduring any War.
Codes were often used,but broken.In 1942 a man named Philip Jonhston thought of a code that would be un breakable by the enemy.
A code based on the Navajo Language...

Be here for the conclusion tommorow...
Thank you for your votes

PS Watch wind talkers starring Nicholas Cage.Awesome movie about the Navajo code talkers !!!

  Hi Stormy
Not sure if there are feeders that try to attact bigger birds like the bluejays. Would think the smaller wrens, finches and the like are the one to benefit the most from the feeders but good that it is a free for all once the overflow hits the ground. Must be such a fun sight to see the different critters all together on the ground eating. Often see a squirrel, mourning doves and some lil birds on the ground munching out on our leftovers. The parronts do occasionally leave a couple of peanuts for squirrel or bluejays, whichever one arrives first.

Despite forecast that Wed would be the hottest day of the week in our area temps actually went down a tad. Still in the 90s but good that it has started our cooldown. Having your temps be 10 degrees lower than the nearby town is a big difference in comfort. Too bad there are houses blocking the view of the lake from the house.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

YUCK ! Last night was a cold sandwich supper in our house - I got the first bite of cherry tomatoe right out of the back yard :) Yum !

Daddy was driving down our road yesterday and got worried cause there was a small bird in the middle of the road. He pulled over and saw it was a blue jay fledgling . . . he walked over to urge it back to the grass so it wouldn't get hit. Then he sat in the car (in the heat with the engine off so it wouldn't be spooked) for almost half an hour to make sure its mommy was around . . .

Did mom look beautiful when she got home ? Mom used to have an aunt and uncle in Port Jervis - there are some pretty parts . . . have a good day - stay cool ! love Cookie

  Hi, Stormy
We imagine the bluejays to be a tad big to easily eat at the feeders so good when they go to the ground to forage on anything that's fallen. Certainly don't want to waste anything.

So glad our heatwaves only last a few days at a time. We cannot fathom how awful it must feel to have weeks of heat and/or humidity eggspecially if it isn't cool at night. Being able to have the windows open for cool air to sleep by helps as heat is very tiring.

Gosh, that bear just never gives up. Let's hope he doesn't figure out how to use the ladder.

Got well into the 90s for us yesterday. Didn't feel too bad since mom was only out long enough to get to her car to go home from work. Good that the lake there helps keep temps reasonable as know all the trees help too.

  Hi Stormy
We're glad mom got her card - we wanted her to know we were thinking about her !

We're still caught up in the tropical heat wave ! 94 yesterday with high humidity - hotter today - or so the weather guessers say . . . at least it keeps mom close to home ! In fact yesterday she ventured as far as the library and came home with a stack of books so I think she's planning on staying here :)

Yesterday I jumped onto one of those little square tissue boxes and it tipped over ! Thank goodness I had my wings to save me - mom came and gave me lots of hugs and kisses anyway though since I was a little spooked. That wasn't supposed to happen !

Stay cool and have fun - love you ! Cookie

Happy Tuesday !!!

The puter is fixed for now and my skin sis will be typing my blogs for me as I dictate to her while I'm sitting on my mommys shoulder preening my mommy's hair.

Thank you all for sending your heart felt prayers and get well wishes to my mommy. The surgery went well and was way better than her last surgery. Now she's resting her shoulder and making the skin sibs do everything.Heehee !!!

My blogs will be short and they will get to the point. I'm trying to squeeze in as much as I can for my campaine and for you...

Today I'm taking you to a very touchy subject. Something most hoomans don't like to think or talk about but it's real and part of our circle of life...

Traditionl Northern Cheyenne Burials.

In my tribe the color white is the color of death. We use white when our loved ones go to the other side.
Burial clothes are made with soft white doe hide and the moccasins are baby soft.
The reason for this is when we all go to the other side we walk into the light where its all white and bright.When we arrive in the consel of elders with MAH-HEY-YOH we arrive being born again. Thats the reason why we use soft buckhide as soft as a baby's skin.

Black is the color of power and red is the color of life that runs through our veins.

When a tribal member or loved one goes to the other side we bathe them for their journey and bless them. We mourn for four days and nights, Some of us may cut ourselfs to ease the pain of the loss and some of us cut our hair to ease the pain of our loss. In my tribe long hair is an honor to have especially with the men.

After four day's and nights of mounrning we bury our departed one sitting up so when they arrive in the counsel of elders they will be sitting in the sacred circle with them. Mah-Hey-Yoh will then judge the our departed who has moved on to the other side.

Our tribal medicine man and holy man will then pray for four day's and nights. After they recieve thier answer they will tell us which consel or departed ones will go into.All of our departed will forever be happy and not suffer. We will then have a celebration with lots of food for them.

This is part of my world that not too many people outside of my tribe know about...
I'm sharing this with you.
Remember death is part of life in our circle. Be good,Do good and never lie or hurt or harm anyone. Always listen to our creator and obey his words to us. If you listen closely will hear a soft gentle loving voice whispering in your ear. You will know it's the creator. And also always remember in time of war when we are forced to kill we will be held in high honor here in this world and up in the stars where we all will be. There's never an end to life.
There's always a new beginning...

Thank you for your votes
Love Panther

  Hi, Stormy
Hopefully all the lil birds eventually get a turn at the feeder eggspecially when the blue jays show up and try to hog the space. We imagine some seed might fall to the ground? Do any of the birds go down there? The mourning doves here will peck at stuff on the ground.

Mostly our summer temps aren't too bad. Occasionally see the 90s-100s though it usually only lasts a few days. We imagine having so many trees around would naturally keep your area a bit cooler. Always have to keep trees trimmed so nothing is hanging over the house. Don't want any branches to fall let alone drains get too clogged up with leaves. That is good to have the roads kept in driveable condition in winter.

Any more sighting of the bear?

Lots of indoor time and cold meals ! At least it keeps mom home in the a/c with me :) Daddy is taking today to go mow the g'parronts lawn early today before it gets too bad out . . .

That's all the news here - but that's OK, cause you know what they say ? "No news is good news" ! Hope you have a "no news" day too ! Love to all in you home - Cookie

  Hi, Stormy
It just must be such a wonderful sight to watch the wild birds all waiting and taking turns. Too bad the blue jays can be a bit of a bully but then maybe they don't always show up at the same time? We don't see the ones here all the time but almost always see the lil wrens and finches.

We are so glad to not be hot, dry or humid that much. Since we are fairly close to SF we get the fog cooling effect (even if don't get fog itself that much) where if we have hot days it generally is over in three (or less) days time. We just can't imagine how awful it would be to have days and days of hot or humid without any relief. So, with that said, another nice day with temps in the very low 80s, sunshine and a good breeze.

Since we are normal 'tiels and not a mutation mom thinks our genes are just stronger since we've never been sick. We do also eat a good variety of food as know some fids can be picky and maybe don't get as balanced a diet if refuse to eat all that the parronts offer.

I'm sure glad to hear that aunt Janet is up to blogging ! How many days is she off her feet for ? She's lucky to have you guys there to help dad with everything around the house :)

We're back to the hot and sticky days ! That does tend to keep mom closer to home - she gets wilty if she goes out in it ! Yesterday she only went as far as the market and boy it was ugly when she got home ! Daddy ended up tossing some burgers and corn on the grill for supper and mom made a green bean salad (which I got to taste before the dressing went on !) She's already missing her kitchen vacation ! ! !

I'm working on building a new heap in my cage to take place of the old one that got tossed during cleaning ! Toys and paper rolls all stacked in one corner to try to block the door from being closed ! har har har !

Have a wonderful Monday and stay cool ! love Cookie

Kiddo here, filling in for my frother in feathers, Panther. His mom called and their puter is still down, so I am using his log on to continue his campaign for him at least for today and tomorrow when his mom is going in for her surgery. She thinks she will be back to blogging the day after that, but my mom had the same surgery and says she is smoking something funny in her peace pipe if she thinks she will be up to blogging that quick! We shall see.

Anyway Panther has had such an interesting campaign for us this month with a lot to learn about our Northern Cheyenne Native Americans. He wanted to ask each of you what is the most interesting thing you have learned about them this month?

Wonder if the wild birds can tell that there is plenty of food inside the feeders so they know to wait. Must be such fun viewing each day to see them. Good the other feeder is squirrel proof. The parronts here toss our leftovers outside on the lil brick wall. The birds and squirrel will often just eat side by side. Guess they are used to each other.

We like to think our weather is quite perfect. Know that those areas east of us are always wayyyyyy warmer than us. Those on the coast are a lot cooler and less sunshine. Rainfall tends to be all the fringes of storms so less chance of flooding though it has happened in our general area many years back.

Survived our vet visit. Though Pearl did try to fly away from the towel but mom caught him. We are quite healthy.

Happy TGIF everyone !!!

Before I say anything I would like to introduce you to my second oldest brother Circling Eagle Bigfoot...He's the dancer on my profile picture. My mommy made everything he's wearing.
We all call him Eagle for short heehee !!!
Eagle is my second oldest skin bro. And on this picture he was only 7 years old. The elders in my family taught him to dance the right way.
He's a Northern Traditional dancer and being on the Powwow Trail all his life he started winning in Powwow dance competitions all over the US.
He is also well known and respected throughout the Powwow circut and Native American land.

My mommy went to Bank of America in Norco and she saw a painting of him on the banks wall.
It said young Native American boy. My mommy contacted the artist Francis Frazier who took a picture of him dancing and she said she had been working on painting his picture for many years and his picture traveled all over the U.S with her...
Anyway my mommy wanted to buy the picture from Francis but she said it was sold to a customer who wanted it. BUMMMER !!!
She told my mommy she would have given it to her...

Let me get back on track now heehee !!!
I'm going to talk to you about Powwows.
There is Northern protocol and Southern protocol Powwows. My tribe is Northern so our powwows we go to are all Northern protocal Powwows...

We have a variety of dance catagories such as Northern Traditional, Northern grass dance, Men's Northern fancy dance...
The women have womens Northern traditional buck hide or cloth dresses, Jingle dress dance, and womens Northern Fancy shawl dresses...

Some powwows are traditional and social and some powwows are contest and pay off with big money to the winners...

At Powwows we eat lots of fry bread and Native American tacos and chili stew. At night we are still eating frybread with hot coffee
or hot cocoa.
Every Powwow we went to we always met lots of powwow buddy's who stays our buddy's for life.
Some Powwows last all weekend and some over night.
Being there is awesome and magical with lots of love between different tribes.
A powwow with different tribes are called intertribal...

Thank you for your votes

  Hi, Stormy
The wild birds must move back and forth a lot while feeding. Would be a tad difficult to accurately count 'em but know it must be fun to just watch 'em getting a good snack.

We don't usually have as high temps as southern CA tends to get. It is more moderate year 'round.

Never have gotten injured falling off the perch in the middle of the night. Guess mom has it set up fairly well and she gets to us quickly so we can see there is no danger.

Yesterday was a perfect day ! Today and tomorrow should be too :) Weather wise at least . . . I know you're in pretty much the same weather pattern as we are - hope you're enjoying it as much as we are !

Last night mom had the sausage and peppers and daddy had just sausage - mom loves not cooking - actually she doesn't mind cooking, but daddy is a picky eater so it's not always easy to find new things ! Sometimes he's like a ten year old ! They stayed for a while last night after running into some friends at the festival - I wanted to keep playing when they got home but mom told me it was night-night time . . . sigh. I hope she makes it up to me today ! !

  Hey Stormy
Happy Thursday !!!

Because of lack of time I have to make this blog short and to the point !!!

The Battle of little Big Horn... Custers last stand...

In late 1875 Cheyenne and Sioux Warriors were mad over the continued raids of Custer and his men going into our sacred lands and the black hills...

Our tribes gathered in Montana with great War Chiefs ready to fight for our tribes and our lands.
The following Spring two victories over the U.S calvary gave us strengh and spirit to fight on.

In the summer of 1876 was Custers last stand...
Custer and his men came to raid our camps and kill more of us.
Thinking there was only women, elders and children there they rode their horses into a trap !!!

As they approached what they thought was a camp with women, elders and children they got surrounded and out numbered by warriors from my tribe and the Sioux...

On that day only 60 warriors were killed and 262 men with Custer were killed in less than an hour.
What a time of victory it was for us !!!

History say's that Custer's body was found unmutilated and naked.
No thats not the truth...Custers body was never found !!! He was seen being killed. By our Warriors. But his body never found...
Some beleive that Custers body was put into a mass grave with his fallen men !!!
He dose not deserve a decent burial with honors and recognition.
Custer was by all means a coward and a cold blooded killer !!!

To this day the warriors have passed down from generation to generation. The sacred hat and clothing that belonged to Custer.
He was stripped naked when he died so the warriors could stake claim and victory !!! One of our tribe's are the keepers of the sacred hat...I can't tell you who because of the sacred vow of silence we made in those matters...

So the elders told us that's what really went down.Generations upon generations of our families have been told the real truth.
Trust me your hearing this first hand from real elders that were there and witnessed the battle. We are the real deal !!!
This is told the same way from generation to generation.

To this present day my tribe will go to the sight where we won victory over Custer and offer sage to our fallen warriors.
When it's quite we can hear the ghosts screaming out in the battle field and when we close our eyes the spirits of our fallen Warriors will take us with them on the battle feild and we can see things that went down that nobody outside of our tribes can see...

Like we all say History is a lie agreed upon. How do these so called historians know if they were not there ??? They just agree upon things because they don't know...They all guess at it and agree upon it.

Thank you for your votes

We've seen that blue jays can be mean. Sometimes we leave a few peanuts out for the squirrel and sometimes the jays will see it first and take 'em. That must be so awesome to see the different species all sharing in the seed and mostly waiting their turns.

The rains were all in Southern CA. That is where Panther, Kiddo and the LaHabras live. We are in the middle part of CA less than an hour south of San Francisco.

Many of our night frights were earthquake related. Not once have we hurt ourselves and most times didn't even really wake up.

Cooler temps here too so it was quite a nice, mild summer day.

  good morning Stormy
Yesterday was a glorious day - low 80's and tons of sunshine ! It put me in such a feisty mood :) I wouldn't even settle down at bedtime - I wanted to keep on playing ! Tossing toys for mom and dad to pick up, dragging my measuring cups into my cage to bang on the bars . . . I'm hoping for an instant replay today :)

Before heading out to the festival for dinner tonight, mom is meeting her former student at the library to finish up with the written part of his summer work for highschool. The reading he can do on his own !

That's so exciting about your BOTM run too ! Have you and mom discussed your theme ? Hope you have a great day today my friend and tell mom we're thinking about her ! love Cookie

  Hi Stormy & flock
Mom and I are in a rush today, because of all the eggcitement of getting ready for the Gathering of Elders PowWow Milonga this Saturday. The notice is on the Milonga page and the Calendar page. If you are on the list of elders (which will be posted on the Milonga page today) I salute you. If not, your flock can adopt up to four Elders to honor and bring gifts to be presented at the PowWow. It is going to be amazing.

It is actually too cool here to go outside for a sunbath!! That is unheard of in July for us. Mom can't remember it ever being this chilly (OK 75 is not all that chilly, but absolutely no sun at all!), since July is usually a 95+ degree month. Makes us wonder what the heck is coming for August!!

Next month the lovely Cydney will be running for BOTM, then September is currently open. Cydney's frother, Stormy, will be running in October. After that it is open again. So if you want to run, have at least 500 votes and have been on BC for 6 months, please let me know either on my page or the BOTM Calendar Page and we will find nominations for you.

  Hey Stormy
Happy Humpday !!!

I had a change of dates for The Gathering of Elders PowWow...It will be on the milonga page on Saturday July 25th...Indian time heehee !!! I'll let you know what time when we get it set up.

Anyone who knows an elder or if you are an elder please go to the milonga page and leave the elders name and page number.

Also if any of you would like to adopt an elder or more please go to the milonga page and leave your name and page number and who you would like to adopt.

Because of lack of time I'm going to take you through a quick truth about the Custer and the 7th calvary battle. The blogs are kind of short but true.These are true accounts passed down from generation to generation of elders in my tribe and elders in my family who was actually there. NOT HISTORY BOOKS !!!

Eyewitness accounts of The battle of little BigHorn...

When the 7th calvary made their way to Native American land they came with one intent. Genecide ,wipe us out !!!
They would wait for the warriors to leave camp and go on hunting parties. Then Attack !!!

The Women,children and elders would always stay behind and wait.
Once they were left alone Custer and his army of killers would raid our camps with no warriors there to defend the women,children and elders.

Custer had no mercy on my tribe and family. Custer and the 7th calvary would rape and kill the women and torture them and the elders by skinning them alive and make lamp shades and tents from their skin.They would throw babies and children in the fire alive and laugh as they screamed in agony and they had the nerve to laugh at them while they went through this torture dying.

My great,great,great grandfather had told my family and tribe on how they could smell burning flesh for miles and miles away. By the time the warriors would come back home from their hunting parties the whole camp would be burned down to the ground and everyone was dead.

For many generations Custer was called a hero. Do you call that a hero ???

This is a heartfelt series I'm sharing with you and my mommy stops to cry while typing thses blogs for me as she remembers the truth that has been told to her and tribal and family members for generations.

When Custer and his army of cowards won a war it was called a victory. When any of the Native Americans won the war it was called a slaughter.

All this would lead to the Battle of Little Bighorn...

To be continued tomorrow...

Thank you for your heartfelt votes and listening to the voices of our elders...

Love Panther

  Hi, Stormy
Do all the different birds peck at the seeds together? Perhaps they are out and about at various times of the day though. Not a lot of variety of birds in our area. Guess if we were in the mountains or next to the creek might see more than just the dull wrens and finches. Do see the mourning doves but their coloring is rather blah as well.

Temps and humidity went down. Back to more normal summer weather. Some areas of CA are very hot in summer. Mostly CA is rather mild but depends on the location.

Had an earthquake the other morning. Knocked us off our perches. Parronts didn't feel it but mom heard us fall and then trashing about. After she checked us we went right back to sleep.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

Late yesterday afternoon big thunderboomers and dumping rains came through - OFF went the a/c and OPEN went the windows ! Today is supposed to be mid-80's with lots of sunshine :) Perfect !

The local church is having its Italian Festival starting tonight till Sunday. Daddy calls it mom's kitchen vacation ! They'll go, pick up some dinner and head home to eat with me. There's such a variety none of us will have to have the same thing twice !

Have a great humpday ! love Cookie

  Hey Stormy
Happy Tuesday !!!

We had a total of three blackouts...I hope that's all over with...We enjoyed the rain so much. It's clean and fresh and SO-CAL needed it !!!

Today I'm going to talk to you about the Gathering of elders...

Almost all Native American tribes love their elders...
On my rez we have a special day for our elders called the Gathering of elders. We do this once a year to honor and appreciate our elders.
On this special day we shower our elders with gifts,food and lot's of love.

Our elders are like diamonds to us and without them our traditional ways and culture would be gone forever. They tell us everything that happened generations ago so we can pass it on and it never get's lost.

If our tribe has an elder with no family we take them in and they spend the rest of their life with the family that takes them in.
We make sure they are happy,well cared for and loved.
We never send our elders to a retirement home as in some cultures they do that.

We never disrespect an elder and we never talk back. They deserve great respect and love and honor. We love them all !!!

Tomorrow I will be posting names of BC elders on my page.

Please adopt an elder and give me your name and their name. You will be able to hang out with them on The Gathering of elders day that will be on Friday the 24TH...

You may adopt a total of four elders per flock or bird and the same elder can also be adopted by different flocks...This is in no way a competition. It's all about our elders and the love we have for them.
If any of you know an elder or are an elder please give me the name so I can put you on my page tomorrow.
You must be 15 years old and up. We are going by bird years not hooman years heehee !!!

After all it's their day !!! Let's make it a special celebration for them !!!

Thank you for your votes
Love
Panther

I will try to get their pictures posted in my gallery !!!

Come visit me, Jedi luvs Cheyenne forever...Thanks for botd...., Snowflake luvs her Apache..., Tweety luvs Princess... & PANTHER...VOTE FOR ME FOR BOTM !!!.
