Howka tribal members, I just wanted to give you another great website. http://www.nativeradio.com/ is a great website that supports our native singers.
The website has music, news, speeches made by tribal leaders. The streaming radio is a great way to break away from the mainstream music scene.

Native American Liaison Branch
The Department of Transportation recognizes the unique sovereign status of Federally recognized Tribes and the cultural values of all Native American communities in California, and it is committed to strengthening the Government-to-Government relationship with the Tribes.
There are currently 108 federally recognized tribes in California. These Tribal Governments hold inherent powers of limited sovereignty and are charged with the same responsibilities as any other governmental authority: Planning the use of their resources to meet their social, economic, cultural and political needs.
California is home to the largest Native American population in the country, including Federally recognized Tribes, terminated, or non-federally recognized Tribes, and urban Indian communities.
This web site is designed to provide information from the Department of Transportation, as well as links to other Native American web sites.

Sustainability Fair - Aug. 6th and 9th, 2009
Keepin’ It Green, San Diego!
Sustainability Fair: August 6th Commercial, August 9th Residential
Join CCSE in celebrating a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle at our second annual Sustainability Fair. It’s a place for San Diegans to learn about reducing their carbon footprint, lowering energy costs and curbing waste and water consumption.
We welcome participants to exhibit products and services related to energy efficiency, renewable energy, green building, transportation and climate change. We’re promoting a partnership between people and the planet that can lead to future prosperity for everyone.
Last year’s event was so popular that we have decided to host a two-day event this year. First is a weekday event with a focus on business and commercial participants. The second day is on the weekend with a focus on residential consumers. Both groups are eager to hear about ways to save on energy costs, learn about renewable technologies and know more about what it means to live sustainably.
Make a difference and help green our world by partnering with CCSE today!

Howka brothers and sisters,
As many of our tribal members prepare for college I wanted to share an excellent website to offset the cost of books. The website http://www.chegg.com/rent/
allows students to rent the book rather than purchase them .As we know selling books back to the school dosn't give us much money in return. By renting books our tribal members can save alot of money.
