PuNic Radio station WP5S (91.9 FM;
from the campus of Fayctleville State
University). The producer and host is
John Lentz. a recent graduate of
Pembroke Stale University. John
cane to Pembroke State with an
already-well-developed interex in
Native Anted ra. inspired at American
Indian Madias. and left here with a

Native Voices
John feci* that hi uae ways
Native Voices is like a five-sway,
that part of powwows and other Native
American cultural event* when
people share the* blessings with the
people who are special 10 diem. He
snyc "I want people to see the great
range of Native American musical
talent that's out there. It's important
that these voices be beard, in light
of there being so many
misunderstanding* about Indians.
I've heard some of the moat intelligent
people in the world say the most
ridiculous things about Native
Americans." Native Voices is a step
toward enhanced understanding of
the richness and diversity of
contemporary Native America
Native Voices feature* almost
every possible type of music by
Native American*. You might bear
the traditional drumming and singing
of Whitefuh Bay, or the folk music of
B1 iffy St. Marie (my favorite is "Bury
My Heart at Wounded Knee") You
music of Keitb Secola (I like "Indian
CaD or the acoustic roc* of Bill
Miller (check out "Reservation Romf).
Then there's the traditional
Comanche music of Cornel
PewewanJy sod the flute music of
Douglas Spotted Eagle. There are also
occasional Indian storks and
legends, items of news and historical
interest, plus information about area
powwows and other events.
For the future, John is working
toward incorporating interviews with
national and regional Native
American personalities. He also
hopes to have increasing involvement
from North Carolina's local Native
American communities.
But for the time being, plenty of
good music and good words can be
beard from Native Voices.

Native American music, visit the
Native American Resource Center in
Old Main Building, on the campus of
Pembroke State University. <

The port 6 weeks has* been busy
in chaic because of headsun aud
kindergarten physicals Part ot my

child behaving in comparison to
other kids their age Sometimes we
came across kids that aire with speech
or language problems w Ik need help
Today we w ill talk about preschool
language milestones and what they
mean for us as parents
Language is a set of abstract
symbols shared by a group and used
for the purpose of communication
This means understanding what is
said aswell as qiealung meaningfully
and clearly enough to understand
Spoken words are language only if
they communicate meaning and are
not just repetition of what has been
heard Therefore, assessment of a
child's language development has
to look at how they understand what
is being told to them and how they
communicate what they need to tell,
rather than just then saying the word
The following are age-relaied
language milestones that parents can
use to gauge the progress of their
18 months -Uses single words,
including "NO" points to body
parts, identifies simple pictures
J 2 years - Uses three word phrases

account of recent experiences, ask
and answers "why. "when."
"how" Uses past tenae. adjectives,
adverbs, knows opposites (eg, good
versus bad)
5 years - has fluent speech, gives
There is a considerable
difference between "demand"
language, which involves asking a
child questions, and language
produced spontaneously, which
reflects the child's ability more
accurately The latter is assessed ?
best through conversation
If you suspect a speech delay. .
contact your doctor or a speech
pathologist for evaluation

Sometimes on Sunday, when I
was a boy. we played Cowboys and
Indians It was Grady Chavts. Fuzzy
Chavts. Tecumseh Braybov III. Tim
Brayboy. and a few others <
Nobody wanted to be the I
Cowboys Evervone wanted to be <
Indians The reason we made real
arrows, with nails for arrowheads
The only thing the Cowboys had ;
was air nfles. They weren tany match ?
for an arTow made from a reed, with a <
ten-penny nail inserted in for the i
arrowhead. That arrow would have i
brought down a deer, or even a water
buffalo, with a well-placed shot t
Grady showed us bow to take some I
tongs his father Septer had and cut the i
heads of the nails off Then we would i
insert them butt first into the reed We I
would then wrap smng around them I
io hold them in place ,ui
We practiced by making some
targets from cardboard boxes That
ten-penny nail head would go right i
through three or four layers of t
cardboard I
The Cowboys, when they cornered
us with their ieenv little air rifles. <
would drop them immediatelv when i
they saw us draw back the bow strings
The air rifle would sting vou It could I
knockvoureyeoutifithitit Oneeven I
split one of my teeth, and 1 had to have J
the tooth pulled
But the nail head would have gone
all the way through a person s txidy
We made bow s from oaks we found
along ditch banks and in the woods
The draw strings were made from
cord at each end. tied to some red ?
of the arrows to make them fly straight.
We used to use the barn, or the crib,
for practice. I wonder if Mister Septer
wondered how all those holes got in
his barns
We never did any hunting with the
bows and arrows But then we never
got close enough to any game to use
them We were too used to .22*s and
12 gauge shotguns to sneak around
and surprise an animal.
We probably spent more time
making the bows and arrows than we
did actually playing Cowboys and
Indians It was too dangerous. None
of use ver shot anybody, either with an
arrow or with an air rifle. We just did
make believe
Now. I can't believe we were
foolish enough to actually play that
way. lfooeofus had shot another one.
rubber, and some cord in the middle to
fit the notch in the arrow
If we could have shot a deer with
one of the arrows. I know it would
have gone all the way through the
deer s neck Those were wicked
arrows We used feathers on the shaft
Especially with the arrows, it could ,
have gone all the way through an arm.
pr a leg. God forbid, a stomach
I had made bows and arrows for
vears before that. We made the bows
ind arrows at Mister Septer's house
when we were 12 or 14 years old. The
3iies 1 had made at home were toys;
they were weak, for little boys.
After I had made two or three of
them. 1 read an article in the
Progressive Farmer about how to make
i real bow from oak. The ones I had
uade before were from willow
ranches, or sassafras, or some easily
oent wood . They were easy to bend,
but they fad no power.
The oak ones, even when they
were green, had power. I am just
thankful now that none of us got hurt
playing with these dangerous toys.
Barents, if you see any of your kids
doing something foolish like that, take
their toys away from them.
I missed two weeks of this column
this Fall because of a heavy work
load Please have patience with me
