Looking for a Cause? Help a Yakama Elder Save Her Language
Virginia Beavert, a Yakama elder from Toppenish, Washington, is working on a project that is “very important and meaningful” to her because “it will help to preserve both my culture and my language,” she says on the Kickstarter page for it.
“UPDATE FOR SERIOUS ADOPTERS: I’m told there’s between 60 and 80 adoptable horses currently in the catchpen as pictured. Adopters may
purchase after 2:00pm until dark on
Sunday March 8th, and most of the day on Monday. FOR CONTACT
INFORMATION AND DIRECTIONS, PLEASE SEND EMAIL TITLED "NEED DIRECTIONS”
TO email@example.com . ABOUT HORSES AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION IN
CATCH PEN: As I post this, I am taking long deep breath… Please help
these horses; rude comments will defeat our ability to save any of
them. Please, understand and work constructively. The catcher has set
the prices at: Pregnant mare $125, Mare with foal $200, 2 years and up
$100, foals and yearlings $75. If seriously interested, please read the
suggested fencing requirements from the BLM in separate post. Horses
will need to be hauled in closed trailer, preferably stock (no
dividers), and picked up at Toppenish, Washington distribution pen
either late Sunday or on Monday. I will put people in touch with the
catcher. You must be polite and keep opinions to yourself or jeopardize
being able to save any at all. It would be helpful if people who are
truly committed could give me idea of what they are interested in so he
can sort some out.
UGH, if I had a way to get one or two here I’d get two youngsters in a heartbeat.
