This is Timbers second year at AvatarFest. This time he is showing a small part of his prim heavy build: Wolf Reference Library.
The purpose of the library and it’s dual displays is education, awareness, and advocation for their respective purposes- Native indians and wolves.
All prim books on the tables can be clicked on, and some posters and other objects also have clickable content.
There are mp3 format native stories and legends readings I have put together to stream here, the radio player by the campfire will be set to play each weeks’ new readings, you should be able to click on the radio and change the stories in the menu.
Books lead to information about the US Govt’s mass organized slaughter of native indians to steal their lands and the resources.
As the late John Wayne was quoted once, his words mirrored many of the wrong attitudes that lead to the genocide of entire tribes, including children:
In an interview with Playboy magazine published on May 1, 1971, Wayne made several controversial remarks about race and class in the United States:
Re: Native American Indians: “I don’t feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them if that’s what you’re asking. Our so called stealing of this country was just a question of survival. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves “
The ground on all of the regions connected to the library is a loose 1800’s wild, western USA theme. The small town in Red Canyons Arizona is in the works and will show one aspect of the invasion and destruction of the scenic wild west by the settlers, ranchers, land barons and gold mining interests to name just a few who had a hand in the destruction of both the lands, native peoples and native wildlife- especially wolves and coyotes.
For the full sized library, please visit the library region: wolf and wild canid reference library. @ http://hypergrid.org:8002
