September 24th Native American Day

There is no doubt that the Native American was abused in this country. Though nearly every native in any country anywhere in the world at one time or another was abused by those who conquered them. What maybe makes it worse in the United States is that for the most part they were a peaceful people that bothered no one, with exception of course, that were pushed aside and pushed aside until there was no place left to go. This celebration falls on the 4th Friday of September and was begun in 1939 by then Governor of California Culbert Olsen. It was made Official in 1968 by then California Governor Ronald Reagan.

How to celebrate – Learn more about the over 574 tribes that populated North America. Visit a Native American Pow-Wow. See if you have any Native American in your heritage.

May 10 Mother Ocean Day

Today was created in order to try and save our oceans before they become too polluted to function as they were intended. It’s called the 30/30 plan as organizations all over the world try to save just 30% of the oceans across the face of the earth. Conservation groups tend to focus on areas close to their heart, whether that is erosion, saving sea life, sustaining the environment and so on. They need your donations and attention to save these precious resources. It’s like any other resource, abuse it and lose it.

How to celebrate – See how many oceans you can name without looking. (There are 7 of them) Go to beach. Get involved in an organization trying to preserve our oceans.

May 10th Mother Ocean Day

May 10th Mother Ocean Day

This day was created by the South Florida Kayak Fishing Club and the City of Miami. We all should celebrate the ocean and if you believe in the gods of old, why not Mother Ocean. We would not be alive without the oceans and the fresh water lakes that cover a great deal of the Earth’s surface. More and more people are beginning to care about the ocean and what we dump into it and leave behind on our shore. We need to treat the ocean, and all it’s inhabitants, with respect and awe.

How to celebrate – Clean up after yourself when you go to the beach. Study the differences in all seven of the oceans. Take a cruise.
