"A winter count is a pictographic record of historical/memorable events for a tiospaye (community)... used by many Plains Indians, is a method of preserving history. Important events are recorded for future generations."
It's our last full day here on the reservation, at least for now, and we just finished rehearsing for the morning report we're to give tomorrow. I think part of the jitters are: how do we do justice to this?
Anyway, if you happen to have time at 1PM tomorrow, consider tuning in. We'll be featuring panelists (medicine and pediatrics!) who have volunteered their time to give us some insight into how to approach these complex (medically, socially, mentally, culturally, interpersonally) situations.
