Out under the cottonwoods in her backyard near Fort Washakie, Northern Arapaho member Pat Bergie shows off her new raised-bed garden.
“Those are the tomatoes, strawberries,” she says, pointing at the rows of small seedlings. “Over here, I’d done some cabbage inside. I brought them out and planted them and those are what’s gone.”
Gone because birds came and gobbled them up.
“The big ones, the magpies are the ones that went out,” she says, laughing. “They’re the hoggy ones.”
