What’s In A Name?
Why name a newsletter The Prairie Wind? We think it sets the tone for this quarterly missive. The winds can blow gently across the prairie, just nodding the heads of the grasses and forbs, providing a gentle persuasion to move in a direction. But the wind can also blow hard and strong, sending the seeds of the plants far afield. We see our newsletter doing that too. Sometimes it will gently push towards a goal and other times the Wind will push relentlessly. We hope the Wind will not be just hot air and that on occasion we can even bring a bit of fresh air to the field of cultural research and presentation. The Wind will keep you informed of what is blowing in the breeze, what your organization is planning and doing, and periodically, it will include results of research our members have done or stories which have been shared with us. Listen to the sounds of the wind. It is the voice of the Prairie.
