Word of the Day
- A belt or girdle made of wampum by the Indians of the North Atlantic region, the purple and white beads being generally so arranged as to form designs.
These belts were exhibited at times when important tribal events took place and thus became mnemonic records of the events.
Quote of the DayWe abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.
- Aldo Leopold (1886 - 1948), U.S. forester.
