Ever affable (say what?), sometimes bombastic, (read: jerk) always iconoclastic (meaning "one who smashes Idols"), Blueotter is always full of surprises, just like his animal namesake. Instead of bashing clams on his stomach while lying on his back floating in the water (another of Blueotter's many useless talents) like Otters do - his favorite pastime is bashing peoples heads full of knowledge that some of them yearn to know -- and others would just as soon like to forget.
Blueotter received his name directly from Creator in August 2000 -- the night after he was given another name in a naming ceremony -- a name (Runningbull) that he had carried forward from his work with another nation. Puzzled at first, Blueotter figured "Creator must have thought, 'New Nation, New Work, New Name'" which was customary anciently but ignorantly scoffed at by many of today's natives. Blueotter discovered later that the color blue when associated with a person or thing, in Cherokee Way, means that person or thing is a "spoiler" and is the Cherokee equivalent of the Greek word "Iconoclast."
Will Blueotter is founder of the Oklevueha Native American Church of The White Roots of Peace. Born in Minnesota, his mother's home is Vicksburg, Mississippi. He is Cherokee, descending from Savanukah (Cherokee for "Shawnee Chief", Raven of Chota, First Beloved Man 1781-83) and Powhatan, descending from King Powhatan and his Cherokee wife AmoPostuskee and his daughter Matoaka aka "Pocahontas."
In 1985, Mad Bear Anderson appeared to him in a dream suggesting he follow up his Cherokee genealogy. This later led Blueotter to Zula Brinkerhoff, Daughter of David Monongye, Keeper of the Hopi Prophecy, who then introduced him to John "Rolling Thunder" Pope. Between 1999 and 2013, he has run up against several corrupt "Chiefs' and a few good Indians too!
Yes it is Black History Month. I hope this is about the 100th time you have read or heard it this month. That would mean, people are talking about it…and that is the purpose of having a Black History Month. There is a lady that posts the most important tidbits of information regarding Black History on FaceBook I have seen. The site is https://www.facebook.com/groups/SDAAGRG/ Her name is Beverely A. Harper. I wanted to get her on the show but learned she is blind. Check out her posting at Friends of San Diego African-American Genealogy Research Group.
“To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.” Kofi Annan.
Kofi Atta Annan is a Ghanaian diplomat who served as the seventh Secretary-General of the United Nations from January 1997 to December 2006. Annan and the United Nations were the co-recipients of the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize "for their work for a better organized and more peaceful world." Currently, he is the Chairman of The Elders, a group founded by Nelson Mandela. The quote speaks to a mindset that any young man or woman should learn and hear from their parents, their school counselors, and even their church pastor, no matter their color or creed.
It is with this quote we bring you our Black History Show for February of 2015. Kimberly Johnson, a young researcher, will be around to help me out. Stop on by and join in on the fun.

"THE BLACK LOGGERS OF WALLOWA COUNTY, OR"
In 1923, the Bowman-Hicks Lumber Company of Missouri built Maxville, a logging camp in Wallowa County, Oregon and brought 40-60 African American loggers as part of the labor pool. This project uses genealogy research methods to reconstruct the social history of these workers.
Dr. Pearl Alice Marsh (Ph.D.) is a retired foreign policy expert and now spends all of her time doing genealogy and historical community research. She currently is working on her father's memoir and assisting other descendants of the original loggers to find their roots. She is an active member of the Wallowa (Oregon) Historical Society and the African American Genealogical Society of Northern California.
