The date of Ms. Sekaquaptewa is not a typo. She passed away last year. Although I’ve been writing the daily obits of people who have died recently, I decided to write about Marlene Sekaquaptewa today in connection with today’s Silly Little Dictionary! entry, which is about piki, a traditional bread made by the Hopi.




I wish I had known about these interesting people before they had died. Let’s share in the life of those lesser-known heroes I randomly discover have recently passed away.
