We accept submissions from any student at The Evergreen State College, and also
from former students, faculty, and staff. We also hire son;ie students onto our staff,
who write articles for each issue and receive a learning stjpend.
Have an exciting news topic? Know about someweird community happening? Enjoy
that new hardcore band? Come talk to us and write about it.


We will also consider submissions from non-Evergreen people, particularly if they
have special knowledge on the topic. We prioritize current student content first, followed by former students, faculty and staff, and then general community submissions.
Within that, we prioritize content related to Evergreen first, followed by Olympia, the
state of Washington, the Pacific Northwest, etc.

those capabilities. If people could find themselves in a position to unlock this, they would be so much more fulfilled .. .it's instant confirmation that you're skilled in something really amazing."
I sat ·down with our cover
artist, Waldorf teacher Molly Mackinnon,* from Prairie
Moon Waldorf School in Lawrence, Kansas, to talk about the
evolution of her chalk drawing
style, the use of art in Waldorf
education, and learning to let go
of your work.

First off, when did you
start at Prairie Moon, and
did you do .chalk drawings
I didn't do any chalk drawings before, and I started in the
fall of 2012. All of tl1c chalk
dra\¾angs of Norse Myths, Tepees or Longhouses, and caves ...
those were all during that first

What's the Waldorf philosophy around chalk drawing?
The underlying pru,ciple
is that the way that we set up
the aesthetics of our classroom
should come as directly from
the creative source as possible,
so, for example a typical public school classroom might have
motivational posters, or titnes
table posters, or manufactured
things that are given . out for
fre_e by who knows who, .but
the teach,r has nothing• to do
v,ith creating those tl1ings. So;
in .. ,ou_r classrooms _we-want--to:
have completely natural· tfongs.

[Waldorf] classrooms to. have

miglit be fall leaves, and maybe a squash, and some acorns,
things like that. Or maybe a nature table based .on the main lesson that you're teaching. \'\Then
I was teaching abput Kansas .or
local geography, I had a bison
skull and some driftwood from
.the Kansas River, and old stone
tools and some prairie grass and
things like that. So, what you
have on your walls is also to be·coming direCt _. from a creative

in my first classroom there were
a bunch of chalk boards, so I
felt compelled to do something
on all of them, so sometimes I
would have a_ poem ... Every
month I would change out aportion of my chalk board ... [using
the Douglas County Almanac]
to talk about what moon it was~

Waldorf people, or did you

We had two separate chalk
drawing seminars ... it was like a
one day workshop and then it
happened again maybe a year
later, so I was able to learn some
techniqnes through that, but it's
mostly self-taught. I find chalk
to be one of the most forgiving
artistic materials that I've ever
worked with. Especially when I
learned to make the drawings
from the inside out, mostly, because then you are not committed to the outer line. If I'm making a planet, I'm going to draw
it from the middle ontward and
if my circle is wonky, I can keep
correcting it until it is what I
want, rather than drmving a

I'm going to give it a try, because
I can make any color I want.

How long do you normally
have a chalk drawing up,
and how do you deal with
parting with it?

[It's very tied in with the
school year, because] when the
summer comes and I have all
this free time, do I do any of
that? Not really. I guess it depends on the grades that I'm
teaching, because tons of weton-wet watercolor' is done in the
early grades.. .it's a huge part of
the artistic process for children,
up through sixth grade. Then it
starts to be overtaken by other
things such as black and white
drawing, having things emerge
out of darkness. Also, precision
drawing, or projective geometry
drawing, pen and ink...portrait
drawing becomes a lot more involved ih middle school because
we talk about a lot of historical
figures. It's been a most incredible learning experience for me,
learning all of these mediums.

For the most part, I only have
a chalk drawing up for as long as
I am doing that main lesson. As I
teach higher and higher grades,
{Ily main lessons last less and less
time, so my chalk drawings are

Making Meaning Out of
By Tavi Gunstone


t's poignant that in America, we have to commercialize the giving of
thanks in order to get our heads out c:>,f our asses for one moment. It
doesn't come naturally for us to celebrate the opportunities, resources,
and luxuries we've been offered. Life is a hard road to navigate, but it has
been paved with things worth celebrating. For all of us Greeners, we are
united by the possibility of going to college. While it would be beneficial
for each of us to make a practice of continually recognizing and stating
our gratitude, the Thanksgiving holiday offers an opportunity for us to be
forced into it. However, it is essential to understand why it is on the ca1endar and what is problematic about it.

or an oilier, I suggest diving into this history
further than this short article can provide.
I encourage sharing this knowledge with
your family and friends at your Thanksgiving gathering, even if it feels torturous to be
the bearer of bad ne,vs. I also offer these
suggestions for helping create a meaningful, or at least tolerable experience of this
observed holiday.

or friends to sVvi.tch it up this year or create a new tradition of helping a nonprofit
that serves meals to people who don't have
access to a warm home. The Thurston
County Food Bank will be distributing food
boxes for Thanksgiving on Monday; the
21st and are looking for volunteers. You
can also serve hot meals for lunch or dinner any day of the week at the Community
Kitchen on 5th and Plum or on Saturdays
with Food not Bombs (contact olyfoodnotbombs@gmail.eom).

Most importantly, see Thanksgiving
as a day to honor and support the indigenous people in our local communities and
across the nation who are still continuing
to fight for their sovereign rights. Do more
than just talk about it. Of course; the most
highlighted struggle right now is the ongoing Standing Rock protests to halt the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Major financial contribution is needed to
help support medical clinics, camp food
and supplies, and legal defense funds to
keep the protest alive. On a more local
note, save your money to buy holiday gifts
from indigenous ar~sans and vendors rather than engaging in the madness of Black
Friday and other holiday shopping venues

A Port of the Problem
By Pauline Allep
his September the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
permanently surpassed 400ppm (parts per million). The safe
level of CO2 is 350ppm (like the climate justice organization
named, if you've never heard of it I recommend you check
it out). The first reading assignment in my program Botany: Plants,
Fungi, and People was Naomi Klein's This Changes Everything, a
daunting, well researched book about climate change and capitalism
that leaves one feeling a combination of depressed, more depressed,
hop~ful, and motivated.


Then I learned that the Port of
Olympia plays a role in what activists
are calling the "Bakken Oil Fracking
Monster" which is an iconic frightening-looking octopus that symbolizes
the assemblage of interactions that enable the fracking process, Bakken being
the name of the oil formation under
North Dakota, Montana, Saskatchewan
and Manitoba. The Port of Olympia
receives shipments of proppants, also
called ceramic fracking sands, from
China and then loads them on trains to
be transported to fracking sites. These
proppants are used during the fracking
process to prop open the fractures in the
ground long enough for the crude oil to
be extracted. All of this is connected,
the worsening climate crisis, my studies at Evergreen, the Port of Olympia.
connected is NoDAPL, the ongoing protest against the Dakota Access
Pipeline at Standing Rock. NoDAPL
relates to Klein's This Changes Everything, because in the positive portion of
the book she talks about "Blockadia"a place that occurs globally "wherever
extractive projects are attempting to dig
and drill" and people are creating a resistance. Standing Rock is one of these
sites of Blockadia where indigenous
peoples and environmentalists are flocking to protest the pipeline that as plans
stand now would cross sacred sites of
the Standing Rock Sioux and travel
under the Missouri river causing concern if it were to break. The Standing
Rock protest is a combination of many
struggles: for Native Sovereignty, for
clean saie water ("Water is Life"), for an
end to fracking, and for climate justice.
It is also about how seemingly far away
and unassuming places, like the Port of
Olympia, are enabling these problems.
After learning about the port's involvement, I attended a "No Oil Fracking Sands at our Port" rally on Oct. 22
at the Port Plaza. After days of gray-


ness and rain, the sun shining down on
the 100-plus participants felt like a sign
that positive change could be achieved.
There were a number of people who
spoke, sang, and performed poetry.
There was a lot of energy in the. crowd
and it seemed like many people felt emotional over the severity of the struggles
at Standing Rock and empowered to do
something locally.
The ·completion of the DAPL pipeline would signify that the U.S. is willing
to extract oil and gas as IJlUCh as possible with disregard to the consequences
including health of its citizens and increasing the climate catastrophe. The
investment of large scale infrastructure
like the DAPL would increase fracking and discourage transitioning to renewables in the United States. As E. J.
Zita, an Evergreen professor and one
of Olympia's port commissioners, said
in her speech at the Not in our Port
Rally, "Oil and natural gas are not the .
bridge to renewables, but the bridge to
One way to stop the .Bakken Oil
Fracking Monster is to cut off its limbs
so that it can no longer function. This is
how the Port of Olympia is connected
to Standing Rock. There are currently
multiple groups working to oppose the
transport of proppants through the
Port. Many people are looking to learn
from the port's history as this new resistance grows: During the Iraq War the
Port of. Olympia was used to ship military cargo. Protests followed; violence
between police and protesters led to arrests and thousands of dollars were lost
by the port. The port stopped shipping
military cargo. People are now asking
how to avoid such violence and how to
amass the power of the people to once
again stop a shipment.
Another limb of Bakken Oil Fracking
Monster that can be severed is the funding sources. According to a report by the

non-profit Food and Water Watch, 38
banks have directly financed the DAPL.
Included in this list are Wells Fargo, Citibank, US Bank, and Bank of America.
This means that if you have an account
in one of these banks, your money is being used to finance DAPL. I recommend
that you, transfer your money to a Credit
Union; most credit unions support their
local econo!llies and provid~ more transparency with their actions.
All of these actions can add up to-

wards the "momentum theory of
change" which is this beautiful idea that
multiple energies and involvements can
come from different angles and actions
and cumulatively produce change. So
if some people move their money to
local banks and divest from fossil fuels,
some go to Standing Rock, some email
the president, some revision the po.rt of
Olympia, some educate others, and so
on, then collectively we can create the
future that we want to live in.
