  1. How can I buy a back copy of the magazine (Issue 10, Spring 2016)? I read the story about effigy mounds in Wisconsin, where we live, and I am acquainted with names and places mentioned by America Meredith. I’m an Anglo artist and writer with lifelong ties to Chicano and First American people. With their advice, I designed an effigy mound built in 1989 at the Veterans Memorial Park, Neillsville, Wisconsin. It’s shaped as a mourning dove, the Wisconsin state bird, and has become a home for many events and gatherings. You can see a photo of it on my art website.

    I don’t use PayPal. Is there another way I can buy a back copy?

    Would you be able to direct me to the issue that had artwork by Marla Allison. The painting was a blue Pueblo.
