Adrain Chesser’s The Return depicts a loosely banded tribe of people who move between Idaho, Nevada, California, and Oregon. Traveling with the seasons, the subjects of The Return use traditional hunter-gatherer skills along with knowledge of indigenous food crops to follow an ancient way of life known as “the Hoop.”

“The subjects in The Return are predominately not indigenous Native Americans. Most carry European ancestry, and most come in one form or another from the disenfranchised margins of mainstream America,” says White Eagle. “Most are poor, some are queer, some are transgendered, some are hermits, and some are politically radical. All believe that major shifts are needed in the way modern society interacts with the natural world. And all are willing pioneers, stepping off into uncertain terrain and searching for something lost generations ago.”

Chasing America’s Modern Nomads


We have a government that says it’s okay to eat Twinkies and Cocoa Puffs and Mountain Dew, but it’s illegal to drink raw milk and eat compost-grown tomatoes and Aunt Matilda’s pickles.

A few marble machines are clickity-clacking in our archives, but never have we seen ones that are designed as laser-cut, flat-packed, wood DIY kits! Hopefully on sale soon from RetroTime.org, a hand cranked Kit2 Marble Machine, above, and a hand cranked Modular Marble Machine - Shield no.2, below: 

There are more kit videos on RetroTime’s YouTube channel.

This map should be included in every history book.

Oh wow! I’ve been wanting this for ages!

This needs to be in every history book along with a map showing where those nations have been pushed to now.

Yes
