I believe Neither Wolf Nor Dog is the greatest book written about understanding Native Americans from a non-Native perspective. It helps, in some small way to heal the divide. There is a lot more that needs to be done. In the final analysis, there probably is not enough that can be done. However, watching this film, reading the book or both is something that should and needs to be done by everyone, in my opinion.
The film is set in South Dakota on the Pine Ridge Reservation and follows Kent Nerburn, as he is led on a road trip by a Lakota elder and his friend. Nerburn; the author who has been requested to write a book about the Lakota elder’s experiences and perspective on life learns much from this. And in turn, we learn from his experience.
A BIBA State of Mind – There’s something about BIBA. Born in the Sixties, evolved in the Seventies but eventually met a demise towards the end of the Seventies. Relaunched and relaunched without founding member; Barbara Hulanicki but eventually she got back in the chair, consulting on the new owner of the brand; House of Fraser.
My daughter recently got married and one of the things I knew I wanted to do was attend the Wedding in a BIBA dress. I wanted a dress I could be proud to wear, for the best Wedding. I got my wish.
BIBA state of mind – it was the Rose Printed Velvet Midi Dress – I love it! And most of all? I love that BIBA logo.
We all had a wonderful time but now it’s back to murpworks. I’m fully focussed upon watercolour as my medium of choice and now I’m doubly-focussed on AT THE JUMPGATE. It’s my all-consuming passion, set in the far future, not that that’s any excuse. Intrigued? You can follow the antics of Max & Schrödinger in Meet Me At The Jumpgate – just jump to AT THE JUMPGATE and check back frequently.
