Top Navajo Nation court holds hearing in presidential dispute
The Navajo Nation Supreme Court heard arguments today on a petition to remove presidential candidate Chris Deschene from the ballot.
Deschene was disqualified because he is not fluent in the Navajo language as required by tribal law. The supervisors for the Navajo Board of Election, however, voted to keep him on the ballot so opponents are asking the court to force the agency to take action.
Books: Life Below the Ankles
by David L. Hu
HOW SNAKES WORK: Structure, Function and Behavior of the World’s Snakes. Harvey B. Lillywhite. xiv + 242 pp. Oxford University Press, 2014. $49.95.
Right below our ankles lies a whole—and wholly different—world. Here, with a shift in perspective and scale, grass grows as tall as trees and rocks are as large as boulders. The landscape is so dense that animals can virtually swim in it, wiggling through oceans of grass and debris. Roughly 150 million years ago, a group of four-legged reptiles began to adapt to this rich lower world, evolving increasingly long and slender body plans until they were entirely limbless. From that point, there was no going back. In the switch to life without legs, these creatures also acquired a complete anatomical redesign, inside and out. The result was the animals we know as snakes.
Harvey B. Lillywhite’s How Snakes Work explores the ways these animals thrive in the dark, disordered landscape of the forest floor. That emphasis on how sets the book apart, as Lillywhite, a field biologist specializing in snake physiology, focuses on the fantastic tricks and tactics essential to life at ankle level. The result tickles the imagination. Using photographs, detailed explanations, personal stories, and scholarly references, the author convincingly transports the reader into this lower world, introducing a whole cast of strange creatures and their even stranger behaviors…

Native American Harvest Festivals
Native American harvest festivals traditionally take place in the late summer or fall. They are a time to offer thanks to the food gods for a successful growing season and for the sustenance to get through the winter.

Let me be a star
From the point where we were chilling eGuga S’thebe, all the images were taken by the children. Unfortunately, I wasn’t around to identify and specify who took what picture but I did manage to jot down all the names of the photographers: Olwethu Malobola, Sihle Jantgesa, Melikhaya Silika, Xolisa Maqina, Mihlali Luke, Sinalo Bam and Yongama Ngozi.
The extreme close-ups (i.e. the hands and faces were the points where the photographers were exchanging the camera - mostly against their will, haha - but most of them managed to get their skills on).
They’re good ne?! Find the rest on The Local Collective
