Extractions: Peace, at last. Peace, alas. Reflections on Sydney Possuelo's attempt to contact the Korubo. by Philippe Erikson, University of Paris X-Nanterre (originally written in 1996 for National Geographic Online Will Sydney Possuelo's life-long dedication to the bloodless "pacification" of Brazilian Amerindians end tragically on the banks of the rio Itui, in the Javari basin ? Many in Brazil believe so. And indeed, the renowned sertanista and his team are putting their lives at stake in their attempt to contact the Korubo, locally known as caceteiros , "club-wielders" (from the French casse-tête , "club", literally "break-head"). The risks are great, considering how consistently the Korubo have been defending their territory against intruders ever since the late sixties. Trespassing in Korubo lands is dangerous. Numerous rubber-tappers, fishermen, hunters, loggers, and even ostensibly friendly employees of the Brazilian government's indian agency, Funai, have been killed, not to mention the scare - and sometimes scars - occasionnaly caused to missionaries, linguists or anthropopologists. Senhor Marinho dos Santos (one of Possuelo's field-assistants) reports that since 1966, local police files record at least 33 fatalities, with peaks in 1966-7, 1974-5, 1980-84, 1991-5. Possuelo and his team of Funai employees can be trusted to honor the sertanista 's noble motto: morrer se precisa for, matar, nunca

Extractions: Crow Canyon offers yearly education internships. We are NOT currently accepting applications, however, the following information about our internship program is available for your reference. Check back here later this year for information about internship possibilities in 2004. EDUCATION INTERNSHIPS The Crow Canyon Archaeological Center's mission is to initiate and conduct archaeological research and public education programs in partnership with Native Americans and institutions with common interests. The Center is located in southwestern Colorado near the town of Cortez and close to Mesa Verde National Park. Last year, four interns were selected from a field of more than 50 applicants from all across the U.S. Our Web site ( www.crowcanyon.org ) contains more information about Crow Canyon. EDUCATION The Crow Canyon education department, using experiential education methods, engages learners of all ages in an inclusive and dynamic study of the human past. The staff works toward this goal by teaching about past and present cultures of the Southwest, investigating student learning, and communicating the Center's educational methods and theories to others. The work of the department is guided by a respect for Native American peoples and is conducted in collaboration with other communities. Archaeology, education, and applied anthropology provide the academic foundation for Crow Canyon programs.

Extractions: Recently-contacted Amerindians as depicted in the media. By Philippe Erikson, Ph.D., University of ParisX-Nanterre. Part I, review of Schemo, Diana Jean, 1999, "Last Tribal Battle", New York Times Magazine, october 31th As an anthropologist who has been working in the Javari basin for the past 16 years, I naturally pay very close attention to the literature regarding Sydney Possuelo's struggle in favor of Brazil's last uncontacted native peoples. I was therefore appalled to find that, of the numerous recently published papers featuring the recently contacted Korubo, one of the most misleading was published in the highly influential New York Times Magazine . This article, published on October 31, 1999, under the title "Last Tribal Battle", is gorged with errors, tarnished by ethnical stereotypes, and uncritically echoes some of the most biased arguments used by opponents of Possuelo's attempt at protecting isolated indigenous groups. Throughout her text, the author, Diana Jean Schemo, makes ill-informed statements about the Amazon and its first inhabitants, sometimes as gross as taking jaguars for leopards (p.75). The very first paragraph contains no less than three major factual mistakes : there are no rubber plantations in Acre (rubber is collected wild), there is no River called "Igarapé" (since

Extractions: Acknowledgments The Castle Rock project and this publication would not have been possible without the support of many individuals and institutions. The publication of this report in electronic form represents a dramatic break with archaeology's long tradition of printed site reports. This new format was chosen in an effort to produce site reports that were more timely, accessible, useful, and economical. This pioneering effort demanded years of nearly blind faith on the part of our many supporters and a belief in our ability to succeed. This faith is sincerely appreciated and was, I hope, deserved. Partial funding for the production of this electronic site report was provided by a State Historical Fund grant from the Colorado Historical Society. The Society's recognition of the value of electronic publication is appreciated. Additional funding was provided by the Alden C. Hayes Research Fund, established in memory of long-time Crow Canyon supporter and former board member Al Hayes. Al was one of the Southwest's preeminent archaeologists, and his lifelong commitment to research and the publication of research results continues to serve as a model and an inspiration. An immense debt of gratitude is owed the many hundreds of students and adults who participated in Crow Canyon's research programs from 1990 through 1994. These people, working closely with Crow Canyon staff members, provided most of the field labor, assisted with the processing and analysis of field materials, and provided necessary funding for the project. They endured harsh digging conditions with enthusiasm, curiosity, and goodwill, and their contribution is deeply appreciated.

FleaMarket By Jeffery Kahn, JBKahn@lbl.gov At certain humidities, water condenses by first forming a one-atom-thick layer of room-temperature ice. That's just one of the remarkable new findings from researchers in the Materials Sciences Division (MSD) who have produced the first high-resolution microscopic images of water condensing and evaporating. Conventional scientific wisdom has long held that high-resolution images of liquid surfaces cannot be created. In defiance of this wisdom, however, an MSD team of Miquel Salmeron, Frank Ogletree, X.D. Xiao, and graduate student Jun Hu report have been able to create maps of liquid surfaces showing features as small as 200 angstroms, or two-hundred millionths of a meter. The key is a novel approach to the use of an Atomic Force Microscope (AFM). The researchers describe their technique, which they call polarization force microscopy, in a paper published in the journal

Extractions: By Mike Wooldridge, MAWooldridge@lbl.gov Ten multi-year research collaborations between LBL scientists and private industry have been awarded a total of $2.3 million by DOE's Energy Research Laboratory Technology Transfer (ER-LTT) Program for fiscal year 1995. The projects could lead to, among other things, better flat panel displays for electronic devices, more efficient batteries for electric vehicles and new treatments for diabetes and obesity. The ER-LTT awards are part of an ongoing effort by DOE to transfer scientific breakthroughs from the national labs to the marketplace. The awards are types of Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs), pacts between DOE and industry to jointly develop technologies with a high potential for commercial application. Since the passing of legislation in 1989 that permitted DOE to enter into cooperative research with industry, the Department has arranged more than 1,000 CRADAs. LBL signed 17 CRADAs in fiscal year 1993 and 27 in 1994, according to Bruce Davies in the LBL Technology Transfer Department. The following LBL projects were chosen by the LBL Technology Transfer Department, using a competitive merit review, for multi-year ER-LTT funding beginning in fiscal year 1995:

Extractions: To preserve the local heritage and recreate the cultures that reflect that heritage through a variety of educational programs and projects for students and the general public. Methods include a hands-on interdisciplinary approach. Most of the activities will be involving the use of authentically recreated tools, clothing, art, and structures as well as other appropriate materials. These are to be used by both adult and student volunteer and paid staff - in educational presentations at the park (field trips) and in enrichment programs- outreach presentations - at other educational facilities including schools, youth organizations, etc. This facility should be viewed as an extension of the educational system for schools in the region. BR> Outdoor classrooms provide a 3-dimensional reality to what is taught in the classroom. PTEP wants to tie the past to the present by subtle presentation of words, terms and ideas in today's modern culture adapted from the past. We want students to feel that they are linked very much to the past and that there are many lessons to be gleaned from past cultures that we are beginning to understand today as valuable in our everyday lives. Taking some lessons from the sprawling Conner Prairie Living History Center, we hope to present a top notch authentic program both on site and in the outreach presentations and educational kits that will be offered in the loan program. PTEP is being put together to offer a unique variety of outdoor educational opportunities for students in a 20 county area surrounding Bloomington and Greene County. Primary targets include the 8 counties which are adjacent to Greene County but includes those further out but within a 2 hour bus drive to the site. We also want to work with other historical and cultural organizations in Greene County and the surrrounding counties to help in the promotion of such facilities in our region.

Extractions: T Tattooing has been existent in North America since before the time of Christ, but it wasnt until the Europeans began exploring the American continent that a written and visual record began to exist of tattooing among indigenous tribes. In America, a tribe known as the Mississippians lived in the lower MississippiValley around the year 700 A.D. and artifacts discovered in that area show what appears to be tattoos on jars made in the form of human faces. Scratches on the chin, checks and forehead suggest tattooing. The warriors of the Tarascan Indians of west-central Mexico painted their bodies red and black and were heavily tattooed. Tattoos can be placed anywhere on the body except on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet where the skin does not adequately retain the ink. In primitive cultures the size, location and choice of symbol or design as well as the ceremonial rite performed before or during the actual tattooing procedure has a major significance to the specific meaning of the tattoo. Generally primitive people believe that the spirit is an exact replica of the physical body. This allows you to use the proper tattoos as a rite of passage in the spirit world. The people of Borneo, especially the Kayans, believe that not only will their tattoos get them into the proper spirit world but could also be used as a further qualification for obtaining certain profitable jobs in the afterlife. This belief is common in primitive cultures where it is believed that if you do not posses the proper body markings (tattoos, scars, brands...) then you will not be recognized by your ancestors and therefore not admitted into the spirit world.

Extractions: Color Coding Curriculum Rubrics: Achieving Age-Appropriate Cognitive Processing Balance From numerous studies and subsequent substantiated data, educators have fairly solid evidence that the human brain most positively develops through phases that respond positively, or negatively, to fairly specific cognitive processes. An example: abstract thinking on a metacognitive level is especially difficult for the young learner (K-3). There is fantasy and there is reality for this age group. There is very limited understanding of analogy. Certain processes can easily be overlooked in the excitement of writing a totally new curriculum. An example: "memory skills". Some uses of simple rote memorization are very useful and later benefit the student in such endeavors as test taking. How can the teacher be certain that he/she has included enough material to address this process? Color coding the basic identifiable cognitive processes gives the teacher a quick "eye gulp" reference to achieve a positive age appropriate balance throughout his/her curriculum. Dale Peterson Translating Values into Action "The Miami Valley School actively promotes the development of each students character within the context of a caring community." To support this philosophy statement we have designed a multifaceted program to help students internalize and utilize practices that support character development. Our presentation will include an overview of: leadership education through athletic development, effective communication and problem solving, and community building.
Untitled As Erikson (ibid. 1313) reveals concerning the matis, this doubt can even be behaviour,or the desire for it, appears not to be limited to native americans. http://www.abdn.ac.uk/chags9/1passes.htm
Extractions: As a form of interactive behaviour, greetings are a virtually universal phenomenon. 'Virtually universal' does not mean that some human beings lack the natural ability to greet but, rather, that there exist culturally specific proscriptions against doing so among certain classes of people, e.g. between men and women in some Arab societies (Antoun, cited in Goffman 1972: 93). Farewells, on the other hand, appear not to be so culturally prevalent. Nor, when they do occur, do they tend to be as elaborated as greetings (Erikson 2000: 118, 121-2, 131; Goffman 1972: 79), though again there are exceptions (Goffman, ibid.: 83, 85-91). The category 'greetings' is a wide one, ranging from the mandatory and formal to the spontaneous and informal; from the asymmetric, involving displays of submission and allegiance and expressive of rank and power(lessness), to the symmetric, associated with equal power relations; and from an act between strangers to one between familiars. The greeting act itself is commonly described as ritualistic. For Monod Becquelin and Erikson (2000: 17-18), greetings are to be classified, along with gossip, insults and quarrels, as 'micro-rituals', the interpersonal verbal genres which occupy a middle ground between the 'stereotypical' everyday (spontaneous, performative) and the clearly ritualistic (prescriptive, collective) - spheres that in the Amerindian context are often not so much contiguous as fused to the point where a formal distinction between them becomes untenable.

Extractions: The Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation is located in southeastern Montana within the counties of Big Horn and Rosebud. The reservation is bounded on the east by the Tongue River and on the west by the Crow Reservation. The terrain varies from low, grass- covered hills to high, steep outcroppings and narrow valleys covered with ponderosa pine. Elevations range from 3,000 to 5,000 feet. The reservation covers about 450,000 acres, making it one of the smallest reservations in Montana. Over recent years, the Northern Cheyenne Tribe has successfully pursued a program to consolidate allotted holdings, purchase non-Indian holdings, and transfer non-Indian-held leases to tribal members. As a result, the tribe controls approximately 97% of the reservation. Needs Data The following data paints a frightening picture of pending cultural and social extinction for the Cheyenne people from a variety of external and internal forces. The information is broken down into three categories of need and thus, focus: economic environmental educational . These three categories encompass every aspect of need to be addressed by NCSPP.
