#1212 Questions From Maryland

In last week’s show, we heard President Thomas Jefferson speak to an audience in Abingdon, Maryland, but many of the submitted questions were left unanswered. We attend to that this week by providing answers to the overflow of questions for President Jefferson.

Lochsa Lodge Winter Retreat with Clay Jenkinson

”The American West; A New Lens: Exploring Native American Culture”

Some of the best writing of our time is about American Indian history and culture. This retreat will give you a chance to read really remarkable books by and about American Indian history, spirituality, sovereignty, and a view of life distinct from the mainstream of American civilization. In view of the renewal of the “Indian Wars” in the American West, most recently on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in North Dakota, conversations will be rich, nuanced, rigorous, civil, potentially life-changing, and at times troubling. Clay will help you explore how your understanding of the American West was shaped by such mythologizers as Theodore Roosevelt, Frederic Remington, Owen Wister, and of course Buffalo Bill Cody. Warm up by reading Wooden Leg’s outstanding autobiography.

This retreat is hosted by Odyssey Tours, a div of Bek, Inc.
