2 trades with a wonderful woman in Canada have been super great...she sent so many terrific First Nations cards and here is just a small sample:
The Nimpkish Memorial burial ground at Alert Bay is featured on this card. Here Kwakiutl poles mark the graves of members of the Nimpkish band.The burial ground is not open to the public but the poles are visible in their original locations.
One of my students traveled with her family to Mexico for Spring Break in mid-March...her parents visited several Mayan sites including Tulum and Chicten Itza and they kindly purchased postcards for me! These are such nice cards but I think next time I will ask students to mail them to me so I can enjoy the stamps as well.
am so behind in uploading cards I have received...in March I exchanged for this wonderful pre-Columbian feline bottle produced by the Moche culture in Peru, 200BC-200AD. The card comes from a postcard book of Animals in Ancient America. The sender found the book in a used shop for a bargain price and I'm the lucky recipient of this one!
