Today on Never a Niche Live, I would like to share some folklore about Oregon.
"Today's presentation is a famous work of fiction that many people mistakenly think is a true story. It’s a story written in 1899 by Lischen Miller, the sister-in-law of famous Oregon writer Joachin Miller, and published in a West Coast literary magazine called Pacific Monthly. Published, I should say, as a work of fiction. Miller never represented her story as anything else."
--Finn of "Lies of Oregon"
Today's podcast examines a tale of an Oregon lighthouse and, I felt, was an interesting story of how tales like these continue to grow and mold into truth.
This show features all of the Christmas Lore segments we did during the American Awakening morning shows in December. Now all of these segments were American lore.

As usual, Obama Claus will drop in for the Christmas Countdown. Only a few more days and we can get ride of that joker!
World Footprints travels to the island of St. Vincent to explore ancient places and the history of a proud people few know anything about. Our first stop is to the Botanical Gardens of St. Vincent, the oldest such garden of its type in the Western Hemisphere, and we are joined by historian Dr. Edgar Adams for a look into some of the events and experiences that have defined his life and the history of St. Vincent.
Then we travel to Fort Charlotte where we meet Augustine Sutherland, a decendant of one of St. Vincent's indigeneous ethnic groups, the Garafuna. Fort Charlotte was built by the British (1793-1806), not to defend against a naval attack but as an inland defense against attacks from the Garafuna, Kalinago and the French. This in evidenced by the fact that the cannons of Fort Charlotte face inland. Augustine shares some of the tragic history his ancestors faced here and some of the challenges he faced growing up as a Garafuna on St. Vincent.

She also wants to entertain others with her ideas and love for these creatures and their inevitable fates.
