  • Choctaw - Everything2.com
    allies of the British who were conveniently hated by the French and later the Americans The Choctaw were very helpful in the founding of the cities of Biloxi Mobile and New Orleans showing the French multitudes of waterways and trde routes as well as teaching them the local language which furthered exploration and education about local cultures When the British invaded Louisiana in 1814 the Choctaw were very useful in terms of manpower and intelligence and many warriors did indeed fight in the Battle of New Orleans on the American side against the British and Creek warriors In 1832 a period of embarrassment and ingratitude for the United States the US Government forced the Choctaw to cede their lands in Alabama Mississippi and Louisiana and sent along the Trail of Tears to the Indian Territory what is now Oklahoma Here they became one of the original Five Civilized Tribes and missionaries from many Christian sects most notably Southern Baptist Methodist and Presbyterian participated in converting the Choctaw to Christianity Today there are 85 000 Choctaw in the US half living in Oklahoma There are about 9000 speakers of the Choctaw language There is still quite a bit of organization and pride in the Choctaw Nation which is still centered in Oklahoma The Southeast is full of Choctaw words and place names Almost any word of Native American origin in Southern Louisiana Misissippi or Alabama is Choctaw Some famous examples are words like Tchefuncte the famous spelling nightmare Tchoupitoulas Alabama Catahoula Atchafalaya and of course the word bayou from bayuk which means small river stream or lake In Louisiana many Choctaw names appear at first impronouncible This is because of French orthography and not the Choctaws fault The names are quite easy to pronounce once you learn how to read French My sources include John Chase Louisiana cartoonist and historian and the homepage of the Choctaw Nation at www choctawnation com I like it 4 C s thing by inexact Thu Jan 22 2004 at 5 04 20 In ice dance or more generally figure skating but dancers are usually the only ones who do them a way of changing direction and feet at the same time It consists of two steps and the change of direction forward to backward or vice versa occurs at the same time as the change of feet It is contrasted to a mohawk in that the skater changes edges at the same time as he changes feet The first choctaw a dancer learns is in the Blues Here the first step is a left forward inside edge and the second is a right back outside edge The first edge is held for two beats then the skater brings the right foot in to the heel of the left foot and brings the lean to nuetral The skater then steps onto the right foot on a back outside edge Good dancers will have extremely deep edges going into and coming out of the choctaw The choctaw

    platform Design and testing of the booster rocket and a mid scale cruise missile in the G 46 vehicle Creation of a full scale full range prototype the G 38 The initial tests of the X 10 were disappointing Usually if the vehicle didn t catastrophically fail in flight it was because it didn t launch Cruise missiles were significantly more complicated than was previously anticipated In 1957 the Navaho project was cancelled The Atlas launch vehicle was already being test flown and with the decrease in size of nuclear payloads the ICBM became the more promising option The Navaho program was not without its benefits Many of the components developed as part of the program were used in other platforms and some are still used today The boosters developed for the G 38 served as the basis for all of the first generation of American orbital rockets including the Atlas II and Delta 3 rockets still in use today I like it personal by ponder Tue Apr 10 2007 at 22 52 07 I m going to relate an experience of interacting with the Navajo people 1 of the American South West Please excuse any inaccuracies as the events in this story happened over 10 years ago The year was 1996 and I was traveling with a friend of mine Leslie 2 Leslie ran a shop in London selling native American Indian craft s from various tribe s She did a couple of trips per year stateside visiting trading post s and reservation s making contact and forming business relationships Leslie doesn t drive which is a serious drawback for this kind of work so on this occasion I flew over with her hired a nice 4WD and we drove around New Mexico and Arizona It was a buying trip for her and a holiday for me We arrived on the Navajo reservation about a week into the holiday I d become acclimatized and gotten used to dealing with the natives in trading post s and market stall s Leslie was in charge of the negotiation and I would always refer decisions to her which was hard for some traders to cope with seeing me as a man I was starting to go native and to tune in to the vibrations Our plan was to make ultimately for the Hopi reservation as Leslie had some orders for inlay jewelry but we wanted to explore the Navajo reservation first In fact the Hopi reservation is completely surrounded by the Navajo By the side of the road thumbing a ride were 4 Navajo guys Smitten with curiosity and feeling in tune with everything Leslie pointed them out to me and I pulled in to the roadside It turns out that only one of the guys needed a lift his mates were looking after him making sure that he was OK The hitchhiker Lawrence 2 had been drinking cans of beer and was in a state that he wanted to get home

  • MLA - Everything2.com
    legislature was renamed to the pretentious sounding National Assembly with a corresponding title MNA Finally when Newfoundland joined Canada in 1949 it brought its own title Member of the House of Assembly MHA When talking about provincial legislators in general the term MLA is often used regardless of the official title in each province mainly because MLA or MPP or MNA or MHA is a tremendously awkward phrase The number of MLAs varies by province from Prince Edward Island s 27 to Quebec s 125 The territorial legislatures are even smaller as would be expected from their sparse population Except in the case of Ontario there are more provincial legislators than there are MPs from that province Ontario s provincial ridings are the same as its 103 federal ridings There are presently 306 seats in the Parliament of Canada this is why Ontario is such an important province in Canadian federal politics The number of MLAs or equivalent in each province or territory is Quebec 125 Ontario 103 Alberta 83 British Columbia 79 Saskatchewan 58 Manitoba 57 New Brunswick 55 Nova Scotia 52 Newfoundland and Labrador 48 Prince Edward Island 27 Nunavut 19 Northwest Territories 19 Yukon 18 For BQ2K6 Copyright 2006 under the usual Creative Commons BY NC ND licence I like it MLA style BrevityQuest 2006 How to Write a Research Paper Jeep French Canadian nationalism The Loom of Language Creative Commons How to get an A on your English paper Modern Library Bowling for Columbine The Top 100 Best Selling Books of 2000 Citing writeups Alternative medicine brown recluse Aida riding First past the post APA MP Prince Edward Island Newfoundland British Columbia Ontario Canada Log in or register to write something here or to contact authors Sign in Login Password remember me Lost password Sign up
