John, Thanks. Just to let you know I'm still out here below the radar, many problems and challenges, much healing to be done. It is almost a constant in dealing with matters almost constantly and mostly out of the lime light and the politics. Just dealing with humans and the challenges they all face, I want to talk to you about a traditional building I want to build, I need help in sweat equity in return for my teaching Navajo Peacemaking to a group who can help me to harvest approximately 100 ea. 11" x26' pine logs for which I can obtain a timber harvesting permit from the Navajo Nations Forestry program. I'm looking at spring 2009 to do this. It will be manual labor for a full week, cutting, loading, transporting and staking logs to be used for construction beginning in the spring of 2010. This is only the current timelines I'm focusing on. Many other activities need to be scheduled to prep for the spring of 2009 and many more for 2010. I intend to use this a a gathering site for teaching "Traditional Navajo Peacemaking' and to perform "Traditional Navajo Peacemaking Services" in some organized and programed format.. I see it as the focus for traditional preservation, perpetuation and promotion of Navjo Tradition and Culture which incorporates the practice of Peacemaking. I currently have a monetary donation from a private source ( a minimal amount-just a beginning) and who has expressed interest in providing sweat equity at some point. feedme some Ideas. It is time to move forward on this effort.
