The Mata Mata Turtle

Found mostly in South America. Its shell resembles bark, and its head resembles fallen leaves, making it an expert at camouflage. It is also an expert at looking like my nightmares.

Shift-shaper.

The Great Lakes compared to Europe

Lastrealindians, I am sorry for my outrageous and particularly criminally insane rants the past 900 trillion years or so. I'm just so deeply attached to Native Americans, Aboriginals, Moari, South American native Indians, native black Africans, that when they are being attacked by someone who regardlessly attacks and kills them, I get so angry that I lose myself and become a wild and violent person. I just want to help fix the whole world. I am sorry to everyone. And you are better than me, RLI.

lastrealindians:

You may be ‘attached’ to us but its clear from your messages that you don’t understand who Natives really are. Warriors acted primarily in defense of the people and the land. We weren’t about slaughtering innocent people. You’re thinking of the 7th cavalry. We joke about whites sometimes but LRI understands that it’s the imperial colonial heteropatriarchial capitalist-corporatist system couched in the Doctrine of Discovery that is the real problem. Lets not call people evil or bad purely on the basis of race. You said you’re white yourself. One of LRI’s founding writers has a white mother. Don’t push a race war agenda. People who do that hurt Native causes.

Celebrating Caplin

Late spring of each year, residents see caplin (or capelin, to non-Newfoundlanders) rolling onto the shores. Large, dense schools move close to the beaches for spawning (first males, then females), while avoiding the pods of whales migrating down the coast, but are quickly met with people and their nets.

During this season, certain beaches are known to turn silver with the fish as they roll themselves in the waves, right up onto the rocks. They are considered a reliable and important local food source that can be eaten fresh (fried or baked), frozen, or salted and dried for use throughout the year. Freshly pickled fish can be dried lying on a flake, hanging on pins in a board, or hung up like laundry (as seen above). Though less common among younger generations and tourists, the females’ bright orange roe (eggs) can be harvested easily, and is exceptionally delicious directly from the fish, or lightly salted and kept. Further, for some communities the caplin (along with kelp) are traditionally collected and used to enrich soil - as a fertilizer - for homestead gardens.

Similar to smelt, the traditional way to eat the fish is whole as the innards and head become delicious when cooked or dried, and the bones are soft and edible.

The photos in this set were taken in late June, 2014 at Middle Cove beach - a popular location to fill your boots.

I’ve always thought liberal and conservative were terms used not to think but to avoid thinking. You can classify anything as liberal or conservative, then simply declare yourself one or the other, and all your thought for the rest of your life can be a knee jerk.
