A picture my dad had made during one of his many TDY’s to Thailand in the early 70’s. This one was always my favorite. Him in his USAF green fatigues, with mom, and me in the clouds.

Tutelo/Saponi Indian Language
Tutelo was a Siouan language of Virginia. The last fluent speaker died in the 1990′s, and few Tutelos remember anything of the old language today. However, some Tutelo people are trying to revive their ancestral language for cultural purposes. The Saponi language has been extinct much longer, but it is thought to have been a dialect of Tutelo, both from the similarity in vocabulary and from historical accounts indicating that people from the two tribes could understand each other without an interpreter.
