Ko’iga Tsunagilosdi, Galoni tali-sgohi-sonela.
Today is Friday, August 29.
Since the spring, when I took the 2008 Cherokee Calendar off the market and offered free copies to my language students, I have been saying that the new edition would be available in September. It’s almost September, and the low response of the last two years has forced me to change that assessment. It just doesn’t seem that very many people are interested in the old ceremonial calendar. It’s several layers of complicated math and symbolism, and more than a little off-putting at first glance.
What I’m thinking of doing instead is:
[a] offering individual life analysis based on the calendar.
[b] devoting more time completing the online book, Even Heaven Falls Apart,
[c] creating a calendar without deep explanation to both Even Heaven Falls Apart members and life analysis clients.
I’m sorry, but, as any daykeeper can tell you, there are only so many hours in a day. Since there has been little interest in this aspect of Cherokee culture and our connection to our Meso-American roots, I need to focus on things that are better received.
The comment board is open, let me know what you think.
