Our human ancestors did not eat much fruit, but instead consumed a lot of root vegetables, nuts, insects and some meat, according to a new study.
The music of Tokelau occurs in the atolls of Atafu, Nukunonu, and Fakaofo. It is dominated by communal choral activity in harmony, with percussive accompaniment including log drums (pate), pokihi (wooden box) and apa (biscuit tin), used as percussion. Nukunonu is notable for traditional song and dance.

I have been 'volun-told' that I will be teaching a cooking class at an upcoming event. And hey! I have this nifty new spit I purchased last Pennsic that I'm still wanting to try out, so it's all good. The problem is that I've spent hours trying to find specific information on how to roast meat (either lamb, chicken, or beef - i'm not picking!) over an open fire (either pit or bowl), but have found absolutely nothing on the subject other than the general "nothing is better than meat cooked over an open flame" type of comments. Seriously, I haven't found one online entry with any trued suggestions/guidelines about strength of flames vs hot coals, distance to said flame, length of time spent cooking, distance to the fire, or even wood vs charcoal briquettes.

“In Shivaite tradition, the god's companions are described as a troupe of freakish, adventurous, delinquent and wild young people, who prowl in the night, shouting in the storm, singing, dancing and ceaselessly playing outrageous tricks on sages and gods. They are called Ganas, the "Vagabonds", corresponding to the Cretan Korybantes and the Celtic Korrigans (fairies' sons). Like the Sileni and Satyrs, some of them have goats' or birds' feet. The Ganas mock the rules of ethics and social order. They personify the joy of living, courage and imagination, which are all youthful values. They live in harmony with nature and oppose the destructive ambition of the city and the deceitful moralism which both hides and expresses it. These delinquents of heaven are always there to restore true values and to assist the "god-mad" who are persecuted and mocked by the powerful. They personify everything which is feared by and displeases bourgeois society, and which is contrary to the good morale of a well-policed city and its palliative concepts.” ― Alain Daniélou, Gods of Love and Ecstasy: The Traditions of Shiva and Dionysus

A Heyoka (in Lakota, Heyókȟa, also spelled "Haokah," "Heyokha") is a trickster spirit, a contrarian, jester, satirist or sacred clown.

The Heyoka spirit speaks, moves and reacts in an opposite fashion to the people around it.

It is not a spirit that people wish to meet at any time; it usually appears to people when it wishes to take something from you or cause some sort of mayhem.

The Lakota people have learned to respect it enough to leave it be, avoiding it as much as possible.

here, fixed that for ya...
the Heyoka is a sacred fool, a clown with a great deal of power. The "contrary", the person who does everything backwards. They are yin and yang, sorrow and laughter, good and bad all rolled into one. They are one of the most important of the Medicine People in the Lakota Nation. Usually Heyokas’ are men but some women have Heyoka inside them and therefore must become a Heyoka.

The Heyoka’s power comes from the Great Winged Ones, which the whites call Thunderbirds. They have control over the weather and certain sicknesses. They are "Thunder dreamers" and once you have a dream of thunder or lighting you become one of these contraries- whether you want to or not.

The Heyoka has strange and enormous powers even though they make everyone laugh with their backwards behavior. There is a great reverence and fear of the Heyokas as their contrary behavior is intimidating to most people and you never know what they are going to do next.

The Heyoka’s power is usually used for good but because they are Heyoka one never knows.
