Board approves economic incentives
City battling ruptured water lines BY ELIOT DUKE Staff Writer
Sub-freezing temperatures left city workers scrambling to fix ruptured water lines across Thomasville Tuesday. More than a dozen underground water main breaks were reported, including one on Liberty Drive that forced Thomasville City Schools to start on a two-hour delay Wednesday morning. Water streaming down the street froze almost instantly Tuesday night, resulting in a wreck that prompt-
ed school officials to act on the delay. Thomasville Public Services Director Morgan Huffman said a total of 18 water main breaks occurred within the city, with some being rather small while others were substantially larger. Crews have been trying to address the breaks as quickly as possible to avoid any freezing. “When the weather gets cold like it is, the ground shifts,” Huffman said. “That shift breaks the pipes. As of [Tuesday] morning we had 18 in all, and that’s includ-
ing all the tiny small leaks all the way up to a main line. “Most of the places where water has been on the road, we tried to get to them as quickly as we could. At Liberty Drive, we were not able to get to that in that in time because we had other leaks with higher precedent we had to get to. We tried to put a significant amount of sand out in areas where it wouldn’t wash away.” Some of worst leaks were reported at Salem Street, Randolph

Free parenting course offered by resource center
LEXINGTON — The Davidson County Board of Commissioners approved economic incentive grants Tuesday for companies that could bring 162 jobs to the county and invest more than $3.2 million. Steve Googe, executive director of the Davidson County Economic Development Commission, presented proposed incentive packages for Project G and Project Combined. “We’ve been working for the past several months with Project G to assist them with expansion in Davidson County,” Googe said. He said the company would invest approximately $1.2 million and provide at least 12 jobs at about the current county average wage over the first five years of the project. Commissioners unanimously approved an economic development grant of .0027 times the investment in plant machinery and equipment each year for five years. Local citizen Barney Hill spoke in support of the request during the public hearing. “As long as the compa-
ny doesn’t get back more than it paid [in property taxes], I don’t care if it gets all of it back every year from now on, and it gets it back with no strings attached,” Hill said. The EDC has been working for about 20 months to help Project Combined find a site for expansion into Davidson County, Googe said. The company would invest between $2 million and $3 million and would create at least 150 jobs in Davidson County during the first three years of the project, at an average wage above the county average wage. The EDC requested two economic development grants for Project Combined. The first would be .0027 times the total investment in plant machinery and equipment each year for five years. The second would not exceed $6,000 per year, and it would be paid each year for 12 years. “Are these concurrent for the first five years?” asked Commissioner Sam Watford. “Yes, that’s correct,” Googe said. Hill spoke in opposition to this request during the

FROM PAGE 1 WATER From page 1 Street, Liberty Drive and Cedar Lodge Road. Huffman said the break at Cedar Lodge Road has been contained but workers will have to go back and revisit the site before the leak is completely fixed. Unlike High Point, where city officials have asked residents to conserve water amidst several water main breaks, Thomasville citizens have not been advised to do the same. â€œWe donâ€™t have that problem right now,â€? said Huffman. With temperatures expected to warm

The class will be held at Fair Grove United Methodist Church, located at 204 Cedar Lodge Road in Thomasville, on Thursday nights, beginning today. It will continue each Thursday for five weeks until Feb. 11, in addition to a sixth week for a celebration session on Feb. 18. â€œThe sixth session is where we go on a family fun night,â€? Nelson said. â€œWeâ€™ve gone bowling and skating, and weâ€™ve gone to Celebration Station in Greensboro. That last session is a graduation, I guess you could call it, where everybody gets together to have a good time.â€? Free dinner and childcare is offered with the
over the next couple of days, Huffman said the increase in temperatures could bring another round of water line ruptures. â€œItâ€™s possible,â€? Huffman said. â€œThe ground is going shift back and the pipes can only take so much shifting.â€? The city only has nine men working in the department responsible for water main breaks. â€œThe guys have been working a ton and will probably be on through the weekend,â€? Huffman said. â€œThey have been working a whole lot lately.â€? Staff Writer Eliot Duke can be reached at 888-3578, or email@example.com.
program. Dinner begins at 6 p.m., and the class begins at 6:45 p.m. Nelson said that the resource center strongly encourages families to participate in every session, though it will be flexible with last-minute registrations. â€œItâ€™s important that they make a commitment to come to all 5 sessions, but I donâ€™t cover as much on the first night as I normally do,â€? Nelson said. â€œThere will be somebody here until 5 p.m. [today], so they can still register in time. Registration doesnâ€™t take much â€” just their name, address, phone number and date of birth.â€? She said that the class is typically in high demand, because once parents take it, they recommend it to their friends. This is the ninth time she will be teaching the videobased class, and Nelson says people commonly describe it as â€œfun.â€?
â€œThe video is very entertaining, and it gets down to a level where people actually understand,â€? Nelson said. â€œItâ€™s not so much psychological, itâ€™s just ... teaching parents in a way that they realize that parenting can be fun and their kids can be fun.â€?

BOARD From page 1 second public hearing. â€œIf the tax rate is .0054, and .0027 times the total investment is $5,400, then paying the company another $6,000 each year on top of $5,400 means that for those concurrent years, the company is getting back more than it paid in,â€? Hill said. Googe responded that the company would not be getting back more than it paid in. The company would pay $5,400 in taxes for every $1 million of investment, and the county would pay back half of that, which is $2,700. If the company invests $3 million, the total amount paid in property taxes before the grant would be $16,200. The county would pay back $8,100, in addition to the annual grant of $6,000. For an investment of $2 million, the total tax amount would be $10,800, and the county would pay back $5,400. If that investment was made over a period of only one year, then with the $6,000 grant, the
company would receive $11,400 â€” more than it would pay in property taxes for the year. Googe said that he didnâ€™t think this would be the case. The grants were approved unanimously. Also at the meeting, commissioners: â€˘ Approved a resolution supporting a donation by APGI Yadkin Division of 20.03 acres of land for a firing range for the Davidson County Sheriff â€™s
Office. Most of the land lies within the county, but less than an acre is within Montgomery County. â€˘ Awarded county teaching scholarships to Brandi Nicole Kirkus, Leslie Kathryn Lambeth, Kelli Marie Mendenhall, Tonya Renee Robbins and Jordan Michelle Stogner.

FROM PAGE 1 MENTORS From page 1
City Schools Board meeting. â€œWeâ€™ve got 23 of our finest student athletes going out to these two schools to mentor children,â€? Captain said. â€œI think this says a lot about our school system that so many people are willing to help these children.â€? The mission of the program, Captain said, is to assist in the development of personal and social skills by providing academic support and encouragement to younger students. Mentors are asked to provide positive guidance and be role models by increasing accountability and developing relationships with their mentees. â€œWe think it really means a lot that these students have someone else to be accountable to other than home,â€? said Captain. â€œWe hope to turn some of these young men to the good.â€? Out of the 23 students athletes, 14 work with at-risk students from TMS with the other nine mentoring children from LDE. Captain said he asked the principals from both schools to find young men who had potential but needed some guidance. Mentors spend a little more than an hour with their mentees twice a month, dedicating 35 minutes towards academics and the rest of the time interacting with the
students. â€œI told our guys to develop a friendship and a relationship with the kids,â€? Captain said. â€œWeâ€™re trying to get home a simple message and thatâ€™s to stay out of trouble. You canâ€™t learn if youâ€™re constantly in trouble with the teacher. We think itâ€™s important for them to see guys who are not only successful in athletics but to see a different side of them as well. Our guys are role models in every sense of the word.â€? Between the 23 mentors, they have a cumulative grade point average of 3.16 and are all planning on attending college. Mentors also fulfill a community service requirement for college applications. Athletes from every sport except soccer are participating in the program. â€œWe were honored to be invited to take part in this program,â€? said TMS counselor Stephanie Newkirk. â€œThis gives our kids a chance to relate to other kids closer to their own age.â€? Mentor Steven Stanley addressed the school board with his mentee, TMSâ€™ Lee Ivey, saying the experience has been a positive one and that he enjoys being in a position to help someone. â€œHe works real hard,â€? Stevens said of Ivey. â€œThis program has taught me the benefits of being a positive role model in someoneâ€™s life.â€? Also at the meeting: â€˘ TCS approved a capital outlay budget amendment
for a recently acquired quality school construction bond totaling $1.2 million. Some of the projects to be addressed with the funds include a new chiller at TMS, roofs for the THS social studies building and cafeteria, a media heat system at LDE and technology infrastructure. TCS has 14 years to pay the money back, but TCS Superintendent Keith Tobin felt it was better to use the money now rather than wait as the projects will only get more expensive over time. â€˘ TCS recognized Rose Slack from TMS, Carole Cloniger from THS, Thomasville Primary Schoolâ€™s Roy Richmond and Community In Schools Director Kim Sanders as its VITAL award winners for the month. â€˘ A new code of ethics policy for school board members was tabled for 30 days.

Whether or not you believe that human technology and waste had anything to do with it, it’s obvious that old ice caps, bergs and floes are rapidly melting. The Big Melt comes with consequences, like anything else in nature, and besides affecting expected sea levels the lack of so much frozen ice appears to also be changing weather patterns all over the world. I believe, in a completely unscientific observational way that I’ve discovered the new polar region and its right out my back door in Chicago. Sure, this is my first winter here and I was warned all summer long by long-time residents who had looks of wonder as they described just how cold a Chicago cold felt. Comments on the wind and appropriate footwear were the two big topics. However, even these sages are now muttering something about how this is unusually cold a little earlier, just like last winter. You see, last winter was apparently brutal but everyone thought it was an aberration and then this summer was unusually mild. I’d describe it as delightful but my sun worshipping card was permanently revoked after the melanoma and so not everyone agreed with me. Instead of a typical stretch of two months of ninety degree weather there were only two days somewhere in July. The rest of the time it was in the 70’s or 80’s, which is to my way of thinking, perfection. Now, we’ve had twice our usual amount of snow so far this winter and my iPhone said the temperature was zero last Sunday afternoon before the wind chill. This only feeds my theory that we are the new Alaska and Alaska is probably the new Minnesota. It will still get cold in Anchorage but not as cold and not for as long of a stretch. Maybe New York City will turn out to be the
new tropical rain forest and everyone will argue over messing with the terrain because of the indigenous flora and fauna that found their way to Central Park. A couple of generations down the line will recognize that these years were a turning point and will adjust their outerwear accordingly. Hopefully, someone will remember this column and realize I was after all a visionary. In the meantime, I am already trying to come up with appropriate gear but with really mixed results. While walking downtown near Northwestern Hospital after another doctor’s appointment I spotted a pair of fur-lined boots on sale in the 9 West window and quickly purchased them. It felt like a divine intervention until the first snow fall when I learned that just as much attention has to be given to the tread on the bottom of the boot. I was halfway between the El stop and my home when I started to fall flat, over and over again and without warning while walking across newly fallen snow. The good news is I’m still remarkably flexible and have sturdy bones at the age of 50. The bad news is the boots have turned out to be giant slippers. I’ve gone back to my old rubber L.L. Bean shoes and have discovered that after about 15 minutes in zero weather it feels like my feet are in their own freezer sections. According to my friend, Cindy what’s needed are wool socks. They’re the key to feeling warm all over. Frankly, I haven’t really felt warm, indoors or out for about six weeks now. I’ve felt varying degrees of cold and then enduring the cold and then painful freezing and I’ve been on a mission to find out who has the best hot chocolate in my neighborhood. You can only drink so much coffee or tea but chocolate in any form is always a different matter. So far, Julius Meinl tops the list. Apparently, I have about another six to eight weeks to go before things start to warm up and that’s only if my theory is wrong. I’ll keep tabs on the place for you and let you know. More adventures to follow.
Working with facts, not rumors Tuesday’s story regarding Liberty Drive Elementary School Principal Benjie Brown being charged with allegedly assaulting Thomasville Middle School Physical Education Teacher Luke Starrett has created quite the stir. As other local media outlets picked up the story and opened comments to the public, enough rumors have been tossed around to fill a week’s edition of the National Enquirer. Many readers and bloggers say there is more to the story than what was initially reported in Tuesday’s Times — an assumption that is correct. It would be illogical to think that a respected member of the community would assault a fellow employee just because he had a bad day. But, like any reputable news organization, we are
in the business of printing facts, not rumors. Since kindergarten age, most of us have been taught the dangers of rumors passing through a grapevine. The story is never the same after it’s traveled from one person to another over and over again. Until a reliable source or one of the parties involved chooses to come forward and make a statement on the record to a media outlet, then we all will have to wait until the case is tried in court to find out the truth. However, the simple fact that Brown is accused of assaulting another man is the issue at hand, and not necessarily the reasoning behind why he allegedly did so. There are situations and circumstances that may ethically or morally justify such an action, but legally there is
no such argument. If Brown is found guilty of the charges against him, the question will no longer be why the incident happened, but instead, is this person setting a good example for the children he leads. After the court case, it may turn out that none of the parties involved are setting a good example for children. Principals and teachers are placed in a position of trust and meant to be role models to the students they oversee. Teaching children how to settle their differences is a life lesson built into the learning curriculum of a child. I’m sure no one would tell a child it’s acceptable to settle a disagreement through violence as long as they have a good enough reason. That’s as false a statement as calling the National Enquirer reliable journalism.
Faux recovery BY DAVID HARSANYI Syndicated Columnist One glorious day, all of us will awaken in our mixed-use neighborhoods, rustle up nutritious garden-grown breakfasts and pedal our bikes to “green-collar” jobs using paths generously provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. As of this moment, however, the “green energy economy” is incapable of spurring the taillights on a motor scooter (much less an economic recovery) without a backup gas-powered generator and government subsidy. Why, then — just as we learned that 85,000 Americans “unexpectedly,” as news stories put it, had lost their jobs last month — did the Obama administration pin recovery hopes on a colossally misguided social engineering project? We’re not talking about last year’s colossally misguided stimulus plan, which “created” and/or “saved” an incalculable number of nonexistent jobs in various imaginary ZIP codes — though we do continue to learn more about that slapdash experiment. At the time of the stimulus debate, President Barack Obama asserted that the “urgent need to accelerate job growth” would be tied to spending on (ethically approved) transportation projects. Yet The Associated Press reported this week that unemployment rates rose and fell regardless of how much money Washington doled out; the report was re-
viewed by independent economists at five universities. No, this time the administration will renew its focus on stimulus through a new “green jobs” boondoggle. President Obama announced this week that Washington will offer $2.3 billion in tax credits for “clean energy” jobs. Using his very own pie-in-the-sky calculations, it puts the cost of every job at a tax-financed $135,000. The uncalculated part of the above equation is this: Bogus jobs kill real jobs. At Madrid’s King Juan Carlos University, for instance, a study found that in Spain — the very country Obama has held out as the exemplar of greening (and with only a 19plus percent unemployment rate!) — every green job created had destroyed 2.2 jobs in other sectors of the economy. The administration plans on spreading an additional $100 million of wealth on green job training and another $500 million on energy efficiency and renewable energy companies — on top of the billions already subsidizing these sectors on the state and federal levels. It is a deeply unserious way to pretend to assist American recovery. For instance, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis — announcing the green effort on The Huffington Post — claims that green jobs will increase American competitiveness by preparing workers for “a range of careers,” including “weatherization specialists, wind and energy auditors, and solar panel installers.” Yep, that should do it. One can forgive Solis for
her absurdity, I suppose, as she never, from what I can tell, has held a paying position that wasn’t footed by taxpayers — a trend in this administration. Now, despite this effort to mold the economy to ideological tastes by predetermining which industries should succeed and fail, real jobs will return one day — and it will have nothing to do with any high-minded legislation that layers on more centralized economic control. In the meantime, utilizing unemployment fears, this administration continues to pursue social policy through faux stimulus plans, funneling money into acceptable sectors, no matter how inefficient, no matter how unviable, no matter how unsustainable. What we’ve learned is that the Obama administration will do anything humanly possible to rescue the economy, as long as it doesn’t relieve the pressure on the private sector. After all, this president explained last year that he believes “only government” can get us out of our troubles. And that’s our biggest problem now.

Grimsley leads way in big 4th quarter BY ZACH KEPLEY Sports Editor When it rains, it pours, and the Thomasville Lady Bulldogs found themselves in the middle of a monsoon with n owh e r e to take c o v e r against East Davidson on Tuesday. W h a t Eddinger had been an exciting game heading into the fourth quarter, turned out to be a discouraging final eight minutes for the Lady Dogs. East made the game of basketball look easy in the deciding frame, waltzing past THS 57-41 in Central Carolina Conference play. The Golden Eagles outscored their neighboring rivals 21-6 in the remaining eight minutes, getting 15 points out of Haley Grimsley who recorded a game-high 25 for the contest. “We got a little unnerved, and for us to be as young as we are, our immaturity showed up,” Thomasville coach Lacardo Means said. “I don’t think I did the best job to try and calm them down and help them get through it.” East (13-2), who pushed its league mark to 2-0, portrayed the passing efficiency and execution that the Eagles have shown the last few seasons. And getting a player with Grimsley’s ability open helps, too. The senior sharpshooter began the final quarter with two made free throws, with Christina Carter hitting a free

tral Carolina Conference victory Tuesday. Sparked by Keaton Hawks’ 23 points, with 18 coming on 3-pointers, and a 23-point effort by Taylor Warren, East stunned the Bulldogs with a 26-6 third quarter. The dominating effort turned what was a 3-point game at halftime into a rout.
“The second half was the best defense we have played all year,” said East coach Matt Jacobs. “Our offense is going to happen, but we have got to play defense on top of it. Third quarter was as good defensively as we have been, maybe in three years that I have been here.”
Thomasville was in good shape, leading 35-30 at the start of the third quarter. Hawks drilled his fifth trifecta of the night, followed by a putback on the weak side by THS’ Cord Fordham to keep the Bulldogs up by four.

8 â€“ Thomasville Times â€“ Thursday, January 14, 2010
SPORTS LEADS From page 7 throw to keep the game close at 38-36. Four points by Chelsea Turner and a crafty reverse layup by Candace Fox put East ahead by eight, then Grimsley really stole the show. She worked the baseline for two layins, then went to her specialty
out beyond the arc for a 3. Two more layups and pair of tosses at the line capped it off, giving East the 57-38 edge. Thomasvilleâ€™s only basket during the East run came on a runner by Chasity McCurdy. â€œThe score was definitely not indicative of how the game went,â€? said East coach Brian Eddinger. â€œThere at the end, we started limiting them to one shot. They
â€˜We missed defensive assignments and rushed shots ... Against a good team you cannot let that happen.â€™ â€” Lacardo Means Thomasville coach
were killing us on the board in the first half. â€œOnce we got in there and started boxing them out, that shifted the momentum a little bit.â€? Means was concerned coming into the game about allowing the Golden Eagles to get in a rhythm they are comfortable in. When his team started to panic, the wheels started to fall off. â€œWe missed defensive assignments and rushed shots,â€? said Means. â€œAgainst a good team you cannot let that happen.â€? With seven minutes showing in the second quarter, East was working on turning the game into a blowout early on, leading 18-9 after Taylor Hallman splashed home
two 3-pointers. Thomasville (3-3, 1-1) never let the Golden Eagles get away, scoring six straight at one point and trailing 28-24 at the half. Carter rattled in a 3 and JoJo Davis layed the ball in for two that gave the visiting Bulldogs their first lead of the game at 29-28. Two drives and finishes at the basket by Fox regained the lead for East, who would never trail again. Fox concluded the night with 14 points while McCurdy led the Lady Bulldogs with 13 and Carter adding 12.

Thomasville’s Chris McQueen drives around East Davidson’s Duncan Bean on the sideline in Tuesday’s Central Carolina Conference matchup.
CAGE From page 7 It was all Eagles from then on. What ensued was a 23-2 run by East, who put on a clinic while the Bulldogs could not buy a basket from anywhere on the floor. Running the floor and hitting the offensive glass, Warren took control during the spurt scoring 11 points. Thomasville did not score for over four minutes, when Fordham finally got something to fall on a long jumper that kept the Bulldogs down only by 10. There was more to come. A quick 7-0 run over the final 1:16 of the quarter raised the score to 56-39, leaving Thomasville in a deep hole they would not
get out of. “They just got hot on us,” said Thomasville coach Tony Clark. “We were doing our best to press out on them, but they caught their stride and we could not recover. We just could not find our shot in the third quarter. I think our own frustration caught hold of us.” Separate runs by each team highlighted the first quarter, with East coming out ahead by quarter’s end with an 18-12 lead. THS retaliated by blitzing the Eagles 12-2 at the start of the second quarter, establishing themselves in the paint with Tevin Davis. East was relatively cold — except for one. Hawks kept his hot hand rolling, draining two more 3s to knot the score at 26-all. “Keaton was unconscious shooting the bas-
ketball and kept us in it,” Jacobs said. Continuing to work the interior, Davis hit two shots in the final seconds to allow Thomasville to take over the lead at intermission. “We have not had the effort I would like to see,” Clark said. “We definitely have a lot of work to do.” Notes: Davis and Fordham each found double figures for Thomasville with 10 points each ... The Eagles and Bulldogs both stand at 1-1 in the CCC.

Genealogical Society celebrates 30 year anniversary TIMES STAFF REPORT
Under the leadership of Mary Jo Shoaf, the Genealogical Society of Davidson County was founded in November of 1980 as an organization to promote interest in family history research and to make records accessible that would facilitate that research. It will celebrate its thirtieth anniversary in the fall. Its first major project was the publication of the Heritage of Davidson County which can be found in many homes around the county and across the country, as well as numerous libraries from coast to coast. Other publications over the years include the eight-volume series of Cemetery Records of Davidson County, five volumes of Marriage Records of Davidson County, N.C. which cover the years from 1823 to 1939. Also, the Society has published three volumes of Bible Records of Davidson County for which they continue to solicit contributions for future volumes. If your family has a family Bible, particularly with dates prior to 1914, which is not included in the current volumes, you are urged to contribute photocopies of those vital records pages for future publication. The most recently launched
will begin at 7 p.m. at First Reformed United Church of Christ. The program for the evening will feature Society member Evelyn Smith presenting a program on “The Mines and Miners’ Families in Southern Davidson County.” She will speak of the different mines, the ores they produced, the families that worked them, and descendants still in the area today. The officers for 2010, who were elected in October, will also be installed at this meeting. They are Belinda Rodgers, president; Evelyn Smith, first vice-president; Maurine Perryman, recording secretary; Rosa Ladd, corresponding secretary; Katherine Skipper, treasurer, assisted by Grady Anderson; Dewey L. Snider, archivist; and Marlana Clodfelter, Daniel Long, Randy Sink, and John Hudson, directors. Roy Cope will continue to serve as immediate past president. The office of second vice-president remains vacant. Visitors at the meetings are always welcome. Anyone interested in local or family history is urged to attend; it will be a good opportunity to network with others who have a similar interest in Davidson County’s history, so we can preserve what we know and build on that knowledge as we move into the future.
series of books by the Society is Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions, which was the county government prior to 1868. The Society meets on the third Monday evening of each quarter. Beginning this month, it will meet in the fellowship hall in the Sunday school building of First Reformed United Church of Christ in Lexington. The program for each meeting focuses on some aspect of local or family history relevant to families with roots in Davidson County. At the last meeting in October, society member Dewey Snider, who has been transcribing the minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions, presented the program on the function of the court and some of the things he has learned about the county’s history as a result of transcribing those records. At another recent meeting, Becky Lassiter, editor of the Society’s journal, presented an interesting program on grave removals necessitated by the construction of High Rock Lake. One poor fellow had to be moved twice, first for the construction of the Winston-Salem Southbound Railroad and not many years later for the construction of the lake. The meeting this month

Works of Power and Beauty
Native American Art We learn about the history of Native Americans in school. But students may not have a chance to study the art the Indians have created over many centuries. The Mini Page visited the new American Indian Galleries at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Mo. These galleries present Indian objects as art, not just as pieces of history or as evidence of a way of life. The collection shows Native Americans’ creativity in transforming, or changing, natural materials into artworks of beauty, power and mystery. Baffin Bay Arctic Ocean

American Indian Culture Areas of North America

Gulf of Mexico
Native American peoples lived in different environments all across North America when European explorers and later settlers came into contact with them. The tribes living within a culture area may have had similar lifestyles. But the designs and materials in their artworks could be very different.
Plains Many Plains tribes were nomadic, or roaming, hunters. They followed large herds of bison, or buffalo. The meat and hides of buffalo provided food, clothing and shelter. Horses, introduced earlier by the Spaniards in the Southwest, made hunting bison easier. This eagle feather headdress from the Northern Cheyenne tribe in Montana would have been worn by a warrior known for his bravery and leadership. Each feather from the tail of an eagle represents an honor earned in war. After Indians were forced onto reservations, this kind of headdress lost its original meaning. It was then worn by men of many tribes as a symbol of Indian identity.
Woodlands The vast forests of the eastern United States were home to Woodlands tribes, who hunted game and raised crops for food. Because food was relatively plentiful, the Indians of this region could live in stable villages. Patterned after an English officer’s coat, this Ojibwa coat from Canada features painted designs and porcupine quills. American Indians often took European clothing styles and changed them by using their own materials and decoration.
