Inconvenient Truths and Self-Serving Myths About Geronimo | Indian Country Today

Inconvenient Truths and Self-Serving Myths About Geronimo | Indian Country Today | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Richard Slotkin, author of Gunfighter Nation, defines myths as traditional stories utilized to sum up and assign meaning to our history. Mythologist Joseph Campbell, author of The Power of Myth and The Hero With a Thousand Faces, asserts that while most myths contain a hero and a villain, often they are both the same. Both are described as having a distinct set of values and a clear agenda. All of that (and more) applies to the man named Goyathlay but mythologized around the...

Cet enfant a découvert un fossile de stegomastodon né 1.199.991 ans avant lui | Huffingtonpost | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

En novembre dernier, le jeune Jude Sparks trébuche et tombe alors qu'il jouait à cache-cache avec son petit frère dans le désert du Nouveau-Mexique, aux Etats-Unis. Plutôt banale comme histoire, jusqu'ici.

Sauf que le garçon de neuf ans se retrouve alors nez-à-nez avec ce qui lui semble être "du bois fossilisé", rapporte le New York Times ce mercredi 19 juillet. Ou peut-être une sorte de grosse mâchoire. Son petit frère pense à un crâne de vache. Les parents, eux, à un éléphant.

Pour en avoir le coeur net, la famille envoie une photo à Peter Houde, professeur de biologie de l'université du Nouveau-Mexique. Pour lui, c'est une défense sur laquelle Jude est tombé. Mais pas d'éléphant. Il se rend alors sur les lieux avec les Sparks pour en avoir le coeur net.

Conclusion: il se cache bien là-dessous un crâne entier de stegomastodon, un cousin de l'éléphant aujourd'hui éteint...

The Unfinished Work of Alan Lomax’s Global Jukebox | The New York Times | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

There’s a fundamental contradiction to the life and work of Alan Lomax, the prolific collector of American folk songs. He encouraged Western audiences to appreciate rural and indigenous traditions as true art, on the same level as classical music. Meanwhile, he wanted to help those marginalized societies maintain distinct cultural identities, empowering them against the encroaching influence of mass media...

The Brief Period, 200 Years Ago, When American Politics Was Full of “Good Feelings” | Smithsonian | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

James Monroe rode into Boston Common astride a borrowed horse, wearing a blue coat, knee-buckled breeches and a Revolutionary triangular hat. A cheering crowd of 40,000 people greeted him.
But it wasn’t the 1770s, and the founding father was no longer young. It was July 1817, and the new nation was 41 years old. The clothing worn by the nation’s fifth president was now out of fashion. He wasn’t in Boston to drum up support for a new nation—he was there to keep it from falling apart...
