Photo by author CANNON BALL, NORTH DAKOTA — Pulling into Oceti Sakowin camp after just after dark, the scene resembles an apocalyptic Burning Man, but instead of being welcomed by a dusty, bearded hippie in a banana hammock, my greeter is a young indigenous security guard with a tear drop tattoo who kindly informs me that firearms, alcohol, and drugs are not permitted in camp. The aura is surreal: headlights cutting the dusty air as cars circle in indistinct patterns. The distinct whirr of chai...

Hear the Brilliant Guitar Work of Charlie Christian, Inventor of the Electric Guitar Solo (1939)

On a recent visit to Seattle’s Museum of Popular Culture (formerly EMP), I found myself transfixed for well over an hour by the Guitar Gallery, a veritable shrine for guitar players, with “55 vintage, world changing guitars from the 1770s to the present.” In addition to illustrating a few hundred years of music history, the exhibit represents the slow development of the electric guitar, and the many ungainly stages in-between. What we learn in studying the history is that guitar innovati...

Wounded Knee '73 was Indians Against Indians

Notes from Indian Country By Tim Giago (Nanwica Kciji - Stands Up For Them) In the past few weeks I have heard some of our young people say that the peaceful protests up on the Standing Rock Reservation that are attempting to stop the construction of the pipeline are just like the protests at Wounded Knee. WRONG! It is apparent that some of them have learned their history of Wounded Knee 1973 from oral propaganda and have not bothered to read all of the books, pro and con, discussing those days...
