We’re taking a little break this week, but we still put together this bonus episode to share fun jokes & ridiculous food puns as well as some more fun music from Hank’s Granny, aka Jeanie Murphy.
We also share a bit more about the famous Dogland saying, “We are all connected at our roots, and rooted in our connection.” It feels perfect to talk about connection at this time. We round out the episode with a talk about Native American Heritage Month and share a trailer from one of our favorite shows and a special song from their incredible composer.
Stay past the jokes to hear the trailer for Coin Trick, https://www.cointrick.net/, a narrative series that follows 12-year-old Cassidy and the flute-playing mischief-maker Kokopelli on their adventures through a fantasy world based in Native American mythology. Coin Trick is a fellow member of Kids Listen- a great place to find wonderful family shows.
We are blown away, honored, and excited to share a song gifted to us from Coin Trick’s composer, Shelley Morningsong, https://shelleymorningsongonline.com/. Shelley has also written a gorgeous children’s book, and it includes a free audio download that we are loving in our house.
This resource from IllumiNative called "How to Center and Be a Good Ally to Indigenous People this Thanksgiving" is an excellent read. https://bit.ly/3FIELv2
We really enjoyed this article from PBS about finding ways to honor the real history of this time in the US : https://www.pbs.org/parents/thrive/thanksgiving-practicing-gratitude-and-honoring-the-real-story
We are really impressed by this coverage in Teen Vogue: Land Acknowledgements: https://www.teenvogue.com/story/indigenous-land-acknowledgement-explained
We create this show in the ancestral lands of the Multnomah, Wasco, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Cowlitz, bands of Chinook, Tualatin Kalapuya, Molalla, and many other Tribes of the first people who made their homes along the rivers here in what is now called “Portland, Oregon.” These groups created communities and summer encampments along the Columbia and Willamette rivers and harvested and used the plentiful natural resources of the area for thousands of years. Today, the Native community of Portland is the 9th largest urban population in the USA.
