    “Reimbursable cattle”?

    • December 23, 2009 at 5:52 pm

      Hey, Dennis. Welcome to the weird world of reservation ‘economics’ –where one of the goals of the Head Farmer was to get people to NOT eat the cattle before their time. Hunger seems to have often defeated the larger pupose of cattle raising on reservations.

    I wonder what the farmer “who took charge of this district” had to do with Mr. Fisherman living in a tent, while his deceased wife’s “allotment” included five acres, a bar, plus a house.

    Hope the children lived a good life. And their children’s children as well.

      Hello Michael J. Good question you raise regarding the ‘farmer’s’ responsiblity for the people in his district. One thing I’ve been told about the tent living that bears keeping in mind: Those split log rail homes often were teaming with insects and were poorly venttilated in comparison to tipii. Some older people perferred tents beccause such was closer to how they’d lived in the past. Another upside of tent living was that it allowed families to camp closer to the day schools in their districts. Thus tents also offered mobile ‘homes’.
      –Thank you for visiting my not so mobile blog home! grins, Shanti Om.
