cool, you're a native american, what is your NA name.... 'Dancing Panda' ?! ;) :p

it would be nice to hear some stories, can you post them in easy to handle bits.... :D

Did anyone ever see 'Dead man' with Johnny Depp, amazing movie, although Im not sure how historically accurate the scenes with the native american village etc is ...

and Sabre, when jebbers tells us some 'indian' stories, it is not an invitation for you to tell us how you played cricket against a Satchin Tendulkar lookalike in a bollywood cola commercial :p

what are you sitting on exactly Grooveh..... in other words, what the freak is up your arse.... I am from a minority culture myself, sheesh, my homeland doesnt even exist politically(namely the Turkish population of Cyprus....)

why the freak would I be mocking jebbers by saying 'Dancing Panda', I was just referring to his cute av of course.....

If my comments are offensive to Jebbers, Im sure he would either post it or let me know via a pm.... I really would prefer that, than to suffer your judgement of what *you* think is wrong by *him*....

as for what I said to Sabre, I was being quite terribly mocking, but me and sabre always exchange such remarks :p

*sigh* steroids must be kickin in huh grooves :p

please dont get mad at Astro (again for the Nth time) :p

and deity is spelt like that

How original. That was so funny, I almost thought it was 1989 again. :rolleyes:

Please note, that I do not have to WAIT for someone to report your post. If it I see you post something, and it seems offensive to me, then I will call you on it.

If you don't want me to get mad, then stop behaving like an ass. Keep in mind that once your warned, all moderators watch your posts very closely. Got a problem with the way I do my job, report my post, or pm an admin.

I would think most mods have better things to do with their time then monitor my evil posts.....

No, I really don't have a problem with the way you do your modding.... :) It is a rule of the universe that at least *one* of the mods has to be a hardass, just like every cool movie has a bad guy... sheesh, if everyone was nice, itd be darn boring..... :D

EDIT : 1989 was a golden year ! The year that Grunge was cool ! Now Grunge is for pot heads and wife beaters :(

Do you and Tyrion need some time alone? :p

If I made you scratch your head this morning, then my work here is finished.

I won't bring up that all of the friends and girlfreinds I know that died of drugs, all started off with pot, i'll save that for another discussion later.

And yes jebbers, please disreguard the last few posts, just a bit of bull**** to "pass the time".

Astro, Groovy, and Tyrion...i dont mind the jokes about my heritage...dancing panda....i like it.....i have heard just about every joke/comment about my native statis...it no longer bother me....and so on to story telling....


this one is entitled How Buzzard got his bald head.

(might need to explain some stuff first...The Creator is the equivalent to God and Sky Woman is the first woman to fall on turtles back and make earth..but thats another story)


After the Sky Woman had fallen and found soil, the Creator was walking around on the newly created earth. As he walked, he created new things like the trees, grass, and all the creatures. Upon hearing the beautiful calls from the birds and seeing their naked, gray bodies, The Creator thought to himself "With such beatiful calls, they need to have bright feathers to cover such unsightly bodies."
So the Creator called a meeting to where Great Turtles back used to be. He called upon all the greatest, highest fliers. Eagle, Hawk, Owl, Buzzard, and Falcon were all there. He told them all that he had created suits of feathers for each bird on earth. "Who ever wishes to take the quest, can only try on the suits once." said the Creator. So Eagle, Hawk, Owl, Buzzard, and Falcon all asked each other to see who wanted to go. After some debating they all decided that Buzzard would go. So buzzard left Great Turtle backs.
Buzzard flew for 5 days straight and finally arrived at the area the Creator had told him where the suits were. Buzzard picked up the first suit. The first suit of feathers would eventually belong Cardinal. Buzzard put it on and looked at his reflection in the waters near by. He decided that red was not his color, so he took it off and placed it in a different pile. The next suit would belong to Gold Finch. He didnt like bright yellow and black colors. So he took it off and placed on Cardinals. After Buzzard had tried on Blue Jays, Herons, Tree Swallows, Robins, Woodpeckers, and every other suit, he forgot to look to see if there anymore suits left. There was only one left. So Buzzard picked it up and pulled it on, but to his surprise it didnt fit! It only came to his neck. He couldnt take it off and put on another one because the Creator told him to try them on only once. So buzzard got angry that he didnt take a colorful one.
Buzzard picked the suits up in his talons and flew back to Great Turtles back. When he got there the Creator said to Buzzard, "I see you tried them all on. This was the last on in the pile. Thank- you for bringing them back to the other birds. By you doing so you will now be able to fly higher, farther, and longer than the other birds." So all the other birds put their suits on and absolutely loved the ones they chose. Gold Finch put his on and sang his little heart out. Woodpecker put his on and celebrated it by finding bugs for his family. So all the birds put on thier suits, that fit perfectly, and thanked Buzzard and the Creator for them. Buzzard was sour about his suit so he kept his distance from the other birds.
He was invited to eat with the other birds but he was to angry with his suit. And so to this day Buzzard flies and eats by himself and he still has his bald head. So when you see Buzzard flying about in the sky, you will now know how he got his bald head.

That's a very nice story :)

Reminds me of when I was little, and my parents sometimes read me some inuit legends :)

I'm of lappish heritage, kind of like native scandinavian, and I've always endured it, you learn to live with it :p

Firstly, thanks Jebbers for confirming that, I never meant any insult at all, I hoped that was obvious :(

EDIT:
Jebbers: I am very pleased and honoured to see you used my Panda comment in your sig :D
Grooves, I guess that means he wasnt as mortally offended by it as you perhaps were :p

*scratches head more* :p

It seems Astro is highly quotable ATM, I appear in the sigs of Jebbers, ZBomber and Rythe :D How flattering! :D

Secondly, I *loved* the story :D I'd like to hear the Sky-Woman one too :D

I write stories...lots of stories. None of which are related to Star Wars in any way shape or form.

Most of em involve overwhelming armies of man fighting vampires in a dire attempt to end the plague of the undead. I use alot of cool lines from LoK though, especially this one:

"But each of us are so much more than we once were. Do you not feel with all your soul how we have become like gods? And as such, are we not indivisible? As long as a single one of us stands we are legion."

hmmm... arent you a little old to be carrying on like that..? :( Ive been playing LoK:D sure its fun, dont see what the big fuss is tho..... ah well, to each their own :D

I used to write a bit when I was younger, but have naught the time now. The spare daydreaming time I do have, I wish I was clever enough to figure out how to drop bush, blair and howard into the streets of Iraq so they can 'meet n greet' the people, see what type of response theyd get....

ah, but I digress.....

for some reason i just remembered this thread...and my gramps is doing fine...he broke his right rotary cuff a while back but hes doing great!

ONWARD!

i give you Sky Woman

In the beginning, the world was not as we know it now. It was a water world inhabited only by animals and creatures of the air who could survive without land.

Up above, the Sky World was quite different. Human-type beings lived there with infinite types of plants and animals to enjoy.

In the Sky World, there was a Tree of Life that was very special to the people of the Sky World. They knew that it grew at the entrance to the world below and forbade anyone to tamper with the Tree. One woman who was soon to give birth was curious about the Tree and convinced her brother to uproot the Tree.

Beneath the Tree was a great hole. The woman peered from the edge into the hole and suddenly fell off the edge. As she was falling she grasped at the edge and clutched in her hand some of the earth from the Sky World. As she fell, the birds of the world below were disturbed and alerted to her distress. The birds responded and gathered a great many of their kind to break her fall and cradle her to Great Turtle's back. The creatures of the water believed that she needed land to live on, so they set about to collect some for her. They dove to the great depths of the world's oceans to gather earth to make her a place to live. Many of the animals tried to gather the earth from the ocean floor, only the muskrat was successful. With only a small bit of earth brought onto turtle's back from his small paws, Turtle Island began to grow.

A few weeks after falling from Sky World the Sky Woman soon gave birth to a daughter on Turtle Island.

The daughter grew fast. There were no man-beings on Turtle Island, but a being known as the West Wind married the daughter of Sky Woman.

Soon the daughter of Sky Woman gave birth to Twins. One was born the natural way, and he was called the Right-Handed Twin. The other was born in a way that caused the death of the mother. He was called the Left-Handed Twin. When their mother died, their grandmother, Sky Woman, placed the fistful of earth that she grasped from the edge of the Sky World, and placed it on her daughter's grave. The earth carried special seeds from the Sky World that were nourished by the earth over her daughter. So from the body of her daughter came the Sacred Tobacco, Strawberry and Sweetgrass. We call these Kionhekwa. The Life Givers.

The Right and Left-Handed Twins were endowed with special creative powers. The Right-Handed Twin created gentle hills, beautiful smelling flowers, quiet brooks, butterflies and numerous creatures, plants and earth formations. His brother the Left-Handed Twin made snakes, thorns on rose bushes, thunder and lightning and other more disturbing attributes of today's world. Together, they created man and his many attributes. The Right-Handed Twin believed in diplomacy and conflict resolution. The Left-Handed Twin believed in conflict as resolution. They were very different, but all that they created is an integral part of this Earth's Creation.

Their Grandmother, Sky Woman, now came to the end of her life. When she died, the Twins fought over her body and pulled it apart, throwing her head into the sky. As part of the Sky World, there her head remained to shine upon the world as Grandmother Moon. The Twins could not live together without fighting. They agreed to dwell in different realms of the earth. The Right-Handed Twin continued to live in the daylight and the Left-Handed Twin became a dweller of the night. Both of them continue their special duties to their Mother the Earth.



this is why i respect the earth and thank her for the plants she grows for the animals to eat, so we can hunt them....i thank her for the sasafras in the summer-time we take....and then place an item of silver in the place of the sasafras...


Why Robin red-breast is a hunters friend or Traditional role of women

(and we respect our women...hence mother earth and our clan mothers, they are very important to us)
