Strata: Portraits of Humanity - Jul'17

(1) Hilman Tobey, a Northern Paiute living at Reno-Sparks Indian Colony, who celebrated his 100th birthday, made stone-bowled pipes for use in traditional ceremonies.  He teaches pipe-making skills to apprentice Norman Zuniga.  (2) It is 70 BC, before the Roman subjugation of Gaul by Julius Caesar.  Cotos, an aristocrat and warrior, runs a farm with his wife, Artimias, in the land of the Eduens, in what is now Burgundy.  Cotos is going to Bibracte, for an important vote and to fetch a sword for his son Eusugenios, establishing him as a genuine warrior.
