Gave the final exam in my indigenous silviculture class (F&ES 741b; Introduction to Indigenous Silviculture: Ecology, Livelihoods, and Policy) yesterday. The students took me out to lunch and gave me some wonderful gifts (thx, guys), one of which was the striking image above of a Lacandon Maya planting his recently burned swidden. The fog, the robe, the charred stump, the planting stick. The cigar. I love this picture. All I have to do now is grade all the exams and papers and post the grades. By next week.
