Heidi And Spencer: Blasted By Native Americans

Heidi And Spencer: Blasted By Native Americans




They recently gave themselves “real Native American” names, and in the process Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt also gained a bunch of new foes.
According to a report, several Native American groups are taking issue with Speidi’s new names, Running Bear and White Wolf.

A member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe explained, "Continued stereotyping such as this by people ignorant of our traditional ways is very disrespectful and only hurts our efforts to curtail these stereotypes. The names they have given themselves are legitimate names in our tribe.”
Prior to their Native American monikers, Pratt declared himself King Spencer. Later, he ditched the title because it was “too much of a burden to have to carry the weight of royalty.”

Sleeping Beauty Turquoise

Sleeping beauty turquoise comes to us from a mine out of Arizona.  It's named after the Sleeping Beauty Mountain originally mined for gold and copper but for over a decade, some of the best turquoise comes from this historic area.  I found this video on YouTube to give you an idea of how this beautiful rock transforms in to a gorgeous piece of jewelry!

Native American Pride: Taylor Lautner

Taylor Lautner
Native Pride, Native American

credit: Google
EDIT: I realize some folks don’t consider him a Native actor. That’s fine, but I decided to include Lautner, as well as some others, because while they might not be full-blooded Native actors, per se, Native American is part of their blood, and they still deserve to represent that part of themselves if they choose, I think (not in a fetishistic way, of course, but if they really want to explore that side of themselves, I don’t think there should be a “Native enough” argument going on. I say this as a person who has distant Native relations in my family tree and as a person who has often been in a “Black enough” argument do to how I act and conduct myself.)
Occupation: Actor/voice actor/model
Seen in: Shark Boy and Lava Girl in 3-D, the Twilight films, Valentine’s Day,
Tribe: distant relations on his mother’s side to the Ottawa and Potawatomi tribes (Lautner is also German, French, and Dutch)
Hobbies/other talents: Martial arts
Trivia: As of last year, Lautner is considered the highest-paid teenage actor in Hollywood
Quotes: (When talking about his favorite line in Twilight“It’s not in the first book, but the quote I love the most is Jacob’s quote, ‘Does my half being naked bother you?’ That quote just cracks me up. Because you know, that’s when he’s shirtless, not wearing a top – we’ll have to wait to see what he looks like.”
(On his acting career): “When I was in school, there was a lot of bullying going on…people making fun of what I do…I just had to tell myself I can’t let this get to me. This is what I love to do. And I’m going to continue doing it.”

This Little Piggy...

Did you know that today, March 1st is National Pig Day?



National Pig Day recognizes and gives thanks to domesticated pigs

When : National Pig Day- always March 1st Yellow Pig Day - always July 17th About Pig Days- -

For some unknown reason, big, pot-bellied pigs seen in zoos, are often the symbol of the day. Pigs are clever and intelligent animals. But, most people are unaware of this high level of intelligence. They can be taught to do tricks. Some people even keep them as pets. Today is a day to give pigs the respect that they deserve. National Pig day is celebrated by zoos, too. Activities include Snort Offs, Pig Outs, and online Pig Chats. However you choose, do not miss celebrating this day.

Yellow Pig Day is a mathematician's holiday celebrating yellow pigs (is there such a thing!?!), and the number 17. It is celebrated annually since the early 1960's, primarily on college campuses, and primarily by mathematicians. On campus, Yellow Pig Cake and Yellow Pig Carols are tradition! If you are a mathematician, spend part of the day thinking and working in multiples of 17. And, while you do so, give a little thought to yellow pigs. Another Pig Day? There is also some references to a "Pig Day" on January 17th. We found it in online calendars and on Ecard companies. We did not find it in any published documents. We did not find any factual evidence supporting this day on January 17th. Color of the Day: pink, of course! Origin of National Pig Day and Yellow Pig Day: Ellen Stanley, a Texas art teacher created National Pig Day in 1972. Her intent was to to recognize and be thankful for pigs as intelligent domestic animals. There is no evidence to suggest that this is truly a "National" day, which requires an act of congress. The Yellow Pig was the brainstorm of mathematicians Michael Spivak and David C. Kelly in the early 1960's. They were students at Princeton University, studying mathematics. History was made as they were listing interesting properties of the number 17 (can you imagine the interesting properties!?). During this thought wave, the yellow pig was born. Most likely, it had 17 toes, 17 teeth, 17 eyelashes, etc. The yellow pig and the number 17 have been linked ever since.
