I can break a computer faster than a tech can fix one.  Ok, maybe not that bad... but Im still learning how to use Weebly.  Now that I see there is a blog feature on here, I will likely begin using this for posting most of my information, unless it is a formal paper. 

 Stay tuned as I am constantly tweaking old posts and coming up with new ideas to rant about such as my next two topics:

The difference between good silver and bad silver in the context of SE living history


Options to quillwork for Southeastern interpretation; or Quit wearing porcupine quillwork or show me the evidence!

I just found your site yesterday. I am glad to see more people into SE stuff actually getting some of our thoughts down to help get more people on a more accurate path for both ourselves and the public. I have also started a blog for my SE kit to help he keep track and document my gear. It is a work in progress but I hope it helps other people step up their own kit and to help point new people in the right direction. I have yet to attend any event as anything other than a visitor, but I hate seeing native reenactors with a kit that is a total mess. I have enjoyed what I have read of your site and can't wait to read your postings in the future!

    If you found yourself here, you are more than likely aware of my passion for researching Southeastern American Indian material culture.  Its a sickness I've been wrapped up in since the early 1990's.  While some of my thoughts might come across as somewhat abrassive; they are not meant to offend.  No, I dont call myself and expert, only a student of history and culture.  Hopefully we all seek to further our education and this is intended as an extention of my unending desire to learn and share.
