Your Blue Jeans may be 6000 years old Peruvian Cloth!

"Many people, however, remain mostly unaware of the important technological contributions made by Native Americans . . ."

A single line in an article about your most recent pair of Levi's! :)

We tend to take our current technology for granted.  It was constructed by others - many indigenous or "foreign to us" people.

Just weeks ago I learned that vanilla, which I love as Ice Cream or as a flavoring spice in many cooked goods, comes to us as the result of an Indian Ocean Island boy named Edmond Albius.

These are reminders to me today of our need to value Peruvians and natives of the Islands of the Indian Ocean.  And, our need to value indigenous persons and people from all regions of the world.
