Join us Tuesday night June 16, 2015 at 9pm eastern as we welcome Diana Almendariz to the show! Diana is of Patwin Wintun, Nisenan Maidu, Hupa, Aztec, Cherokee, English and Irish origins. The federal government recognizes her as 3/8 Californian Indian. She is a total of ¾ Native North and Central American heritage. She creates tule duck decoys and made them for the Oakland Museum. There are particular decoys she made as replicas of the Lovelock Cave duck decoys, which is the same cave the guano harvesters found the red headed giants. Interesting to note, as native people, they have always crossed paths with the giants. She will talk about areas that were considered ‘wild’ and where the mountain/forest people live. They were not to go in those areas--it was not their territory. It belonged to the other Indians—which were known to all of us as bigfoot. As a Maidu descendant, they called them Kombu.
Whenever you gather in their area, you leave an offering. This could be food or something you like. It is a type of ‘thank you’. It isn’t an offering dedicated or intentional for a bigfoot. It is an offering to the earth and its creatures. If you don’t offer it, it’s not good for ‘your’ spirit. She has observed some researchers refer to this as gifting or feeding. If you happen to go into their territory and you don’t ‘offer’, you are not viewed as welcome. This is what she sees as them making it difficult and being stubborn. This should be a very interesting and informative show, join us and enjoy!
