One of the biggest stories in the news last week was Net Neutrality. Net Neutrality is defined by the Federal Communications Commission as “Open Internet;” although they make no mention of platforms or services. The FCC does not currently have jurisdiction to regulate the internet; hard to believe isn’t it?

Last week, I was honored to be a part of Steven Yazzie‘s Indigenous Tours Project. This series of art works are narratives of Indigenous people and they function as a community outreach project that reinterprets land, peoples, and histories. Steve is a Navajo/Laguna multidisciplinary artist working out of Phoenix, Arizona. He’s a painter, sculptor, performance, installation, and film/video artist.
It’s like early Christmas at the Homahota Consulting offices! We got a big order in of research books for a new book project. As a part of my #GivingTuesday commitment, I ordered via Amazon Smile to benefit one of my chosen non-profits, the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums.
These books will be used as primary reading and preparation for a book I’m working on about Chickasaw allotment. The book will be a cultural biography that examines the loss of land and culture through the lens of a series of historic correspondence that took place between my great-grandmother and great-grandfather between 1907 and 1912 in Chickasaw Indian Territory.
