Yesterday at Western was so amazing. The human cadavers were so interesting even though it was just a human body. We actually got to see inside it and how it works. I think we are very grateful because not a lot of people get opportunities like this. that was once in a lifetime experience. I’ve learned so much at western such as diabetes, body parts, and even people at disney need to know how to body structure words. Then we had story time with jerry that was fun i always love a great story. i think i have gained so much knowledge from this program and i think its to early to go home. i wish i had people like this in my life all the time. I like to thank the creator for giving me another day to live everyday. And everyday is amazing.
On Tuesday, we watched Reel Injun, I really thought that the ideas and ways of the people back then were just a disgrace. On how they used to treat and describe the stereotypes of us. The part of the movie that got me mad was when they had all the kids in a camp wearing paint on there face. they called themselves the “Sioux” tribe which i think is not only disrespectful to to the tribe but also to all native americans. I just thank all the ancestors for let me be in this “free” world today and allowing me to have more opportunities.
These past days have been great. It started on saturday when we clean the garden with barbra drake. I got a cut on my arm but it was still fun. We came back to pitzer to watch red cloud and CRYSTLE LIGHTNING(: .Sunday we walked to the farmers market and i had the bombest smoothie ever! we also learned some cultural songs with josie and did some hawaiian dancing with keoni & jen. We watched the alcatrez movie and i learned that it was more than just an island. Monday we went to the State Historic Park and i learned about all the sages that our out there. That the land was very sacred and all the indigenous plants. We had a bomb fire and bonded great with Olivia & Cindi. The pipeline has been great and i learned so much that i’ve been here. I’ve met so many people and i don’t want to go home. I learned to live without t.v. & games and i adapted to just talking and meeting new people. I also liked the salsa dancing and yoga class with Daria.
My community is bad. The crime rate is very high. In order to change it I have to first start small with the kids in school. You have to show them that crime is not good and start a program to prevent it. Then from there we have to change the environment and make it safer and try to clean it up.After all this is done I think you can change the city little by little.
i just found out that praying mantises eat humming birds.:O
