Wendy Red Star gets the last laugh

By Sandra Hale Schulman
News From Indian Country

I first saw Wendy Red Star’s work in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s sprawling exhibit of native art that ranged from traditional – ledger drawings, headdresses- to wildly contemporary – video and photography. A large photo by Wendy Red Star made me look twice. Seated in a diorama setting with astro turf for grass and an obvious fake wallpaper backdrop, Red Star posed with a blow up deer and a sincere “I am one with nature” look on her beautiful face.

It ain’t easy being Indian… (November 2017)

News From Indian Country

At this writing I woke to a Winter Wonderland. Yeah, the meteorologists did predict snow coming but somehow, even after a lifetime spent in Da Nort’land, it’s still a big deal. Just last week on the same day I was sitting outside in shorts with my dear friend Lorri with our two little pooches Caesar and Mitzi gamboling about on a leaf-littered green lawn enjoying the day. We laughed, talked and had to hide from a nosey neighbor and all was perfect. Sigh.

I always blamed myself

By Arne Vainio, M.D.
News From Indian Country

Suicide is a scary subject and it’s a touchy subject. Almost everyone has been touched by suicide and those left behind most often suffer in silence. It’s difficult for people to bring up the names to family and friends for fear of reopening wounds too deep to easily close again and those names remain unspoken. The hurt runs deep in the wake of such a confusing and devastating event and there is a stigma surrounding suicide that keeps people from talking about it.

It ain’t easy being Indian… (October 2017)

My big black ‘kitten’ The RZA (who is only four years old) was walking in front of me in the hallway with his tail up high and clearly wanting something like treats or whatever and I said to him, “You have all that food, clean water and a soft bed!” I stopped in my tracks and felt terrible for the millions of Americans in Puerto Rico who don’t have that security.

I’ve been flying to Los Angeles every few months for years to visit the last of my father’s family. I was there about a month ago and it had been six months since I was last there. She had been calling me often to find out when I could come and see her. The summer was busy and we’ve been short on doctors and getting away was hard.
