[Resolved] Server maintenance & possible downtime

This morning, I will be performing some maintenance on the web server. I will try and keep any disruption to a minimum, but there might be some short periods where the web site and forums will be unavailable. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Re: [Resolved] Server maintenance & possible downtime

^ I actually owned a copy of a Far Side book featuring that cartoon...and the one about "that Jane Goodall tramp" too.  Good times.

Re: [Resolved] Server maintenance & possible downtime

So anyway, according to Wiki (and we all know how trustworthy that is roll) kemo sabe is Potawatomi for "faithful scout"...so if this translation is accurate - and if the phrase ever was in common usage among the Algonquian - wouldn't the term better describe Tonto himself?

Re: [Resolved] Server maintenance & possible downtime

^ Of course, but was the American Indian ever depicted correctly before 1980?

Re: [Resolved] Server maintenance & possible downtime

Not really - even the "crying Indian" was a caricature...and the actor they picked to portray him (Iron Eyes Cody) was of Italian heritage.  And Jay Silverheels (the actor who portrayed Tonto on TV), while Native American, was actually Mohawk...about as far as you can get from Potawatomi while still being Native American.

And Kevin Costner's Sioux, well...the less we say about that, the better. neutral  Suffice to say the Native Americans I know found that particular film amusing at best.  I found Rachel McLish's portrayal of the Lakota in Raven Hawk far more compelling.

@Papanominal:  Sorry for hijacking this thread...

Yea, but don't look up 'Tonto' in Spanish.  Otherwise 'kemo sabe' might well be the south end of a horse heading north.
