The items are currently for sale at the Information Center. Owenuma Blue Sky , better known a little at a time everyday," he added. in Warm Springs as the Fry Bread Man, has begun putting his creative talents to use by making pots and vases of various shapes and sizes out of local clay and other natural ma terials. Blue Sky uses clay from Kah-Nee-Ta and the Tewee Butte areas to form his creations. "I was told it was impossible to use the clay, but I've been successful in using it, he says. All pieces are painted with natu ral materials white base from White Hill and red base from Indian Head Canyon. He applies the paint with bones, twigs and grass. The designs are all original and come from "inner visions," says Blue Sky. "A Hopi woman taught me how to make them in the old,style--Pre Columbian," says Blue Sky. He uses no tools or molds and shapes his creations in the old coil technique. He fires his pieces in an outdoor pit with juniper. "The process is slow. I have to do The pieces are dried and then pol ished. He uses a small pebble to pol ish his works. Blue Sky believes that his hands are his best friends and have enabled him to accomplish many things.' "Whenever you want or need some thing, all you have to do is look at the end of your arms. There's the two best friends you'll ever have in your life.. ..My grandmother must have told me that a thousand times." Blue Sky, who has been in Warm Springs for about seven years, lives at the Sam place below White Hill. He has had an interest in pottery for about 10 years, and only in the past two years has he begun his pottery work here. Blue Sky's work is currently for sale at the Information Center. Pieces sell for between $50 and $70. Center manager Faye Waheneka says she is "excited about his pottery...He's the only one to succeed in making pot tery from local clav."

Communication necessary among adults, youth Do you ever tcel like your parents just don't trust you? Maybe Mom and Dad won't allow you to go on a trip. Or they won't let you take the family car some where or choose your own friends. It's frustrating, because everyone wants to be trusted. If the problem exists, very rarely is it all your fault. But it's probably not entirely your parent's fault either. When people have trouble getting along, the problem usually has built up over time, and both sides have contributed to it. Although you may see where you and your parents have made some wrong decisions, you can't really change your parents. But you can change yourself. So, how do you get to be trusted? You have to be trustworthy, "worthy of trust." You do it by proving you can be trusted in the little things. If your parents give you a curfew and you're always late, they're going to say, "Well, he can't tell time, so he cer tainly can't be trusted with something bigger." However, if you call from wherever you are and say, "Hey, Dad, I'm on my way, but I'm still 25 minutes late," you'll find that you have a chance at receiving other privileges when you ask for them. Break down the word: responsi bility. It's "response ability," the ability to respond maturely to situa tions. Do you respond to money maturely or does it bum a hole in your pocket? When disappointed, do you take it in stride or do you pout for a week? Parents watch, not to spy on you, but to check your response ability to see if you're ready for more. There's a good reason behind this approach. If your parents are smart, their goal is for you to become inde pendent. They don't particularly want baby birds in the nest forever. They want you to fly. But to fly, you have to develop gradually. You don't go out and challenge the neighborhood cat the first day; you go out and practice little hoops to see if you can do them. Gradually the loops get bigger and bigger until the day comes when you're ready for something tough. Then your parents will enjoy it with you. But to get to that stage, you have to excel at the little loops. If you really want privileges at home, I'll tell you how to get them; Start doing all the dumb little stuff according to the book. Stuff like making your bed, hanging up your clothes, doing the dishes without being asked. You do it by communicating with Mom and Dad. A student once told me, "My parents don't trust me with my friends, and they don't like my friends because of the way they dress. Mom and Dad think they're troublemakers. But if my parents knew what the kids they want me to hang out with are like, they'd be glad I have the friends I do." "Have you ever thought of telling them?" I asked. How can you expect your parents to trust you wilh your friends unless you've told them what your friends are like? If you just grunt every time your parents ask you a question and make them feel like it's none of their business, they're not going to trust your friends. Teenagers say, "My mom doesn't trust me." "Why not?" I ask. "Well, she reads all the papers and hears about all things kids are doing, and she thinks that s what I'm doing." "Well, does your mother know anything about you?" "Not really." "Why not?" "I guess because I never told her." Do you ever sit down and tell your parents what kind of person you are? What you want out of life? What your values are? As your parents see your ideas maturing, they will feel more confident to say, "He can be trusted when we're not here." And that's truly what trust is all about. Powwow scheduled The Chemeketa Community Col lege Native American Club will sponsor "In honor of all", a powwow with drumming, singing and contest dancing, Saturday, May 9, 1992,at the Chemeketa Community College Gym (building 7), 4000 Lancaster Drive NE, Salem, Oregon.

Writers share work with students Three members of the Northwest Native American Writers Association from Portland, Oregon spent two days with students at Madras High School. V) ""C ''-' 1 ';.: S l Writer and storyteller Ed Edmo, Sr., works with Madras Hich School student during visit to school The published writers shared their lives and some of their work. They encouraged students to write as an expression of feelings and as a way to inform others. The writers, members of the re cently formed writers association, included poet Elizabeth Woody , poet Vincent Wannassay and writer and storyteller Ed Edmo, Sr., Emphasizing the power of words, written and spoken, the writers read and recited some of their work, re lating social, political and environ mental concerns which are not ex clusively native American. The lessons of coyote tales were related to the students, while the im portance of tradition was expressed in the poetry of Wannassay. Each expressed themselves in different ways, with unique style. Students approached the authors with questions about their own writing and were given advice and encouragemenL Taken from a recent publication by the Northwest Native American Writers Association is a poem of Edmo's: Celilo fisherman you made your nets &.tested the knots seeing (hat they held. Little did you know what was to hold you after the sound of water over what used to be.
