Issue 8, go south!
Eugene School District 4j, South Eugene High School, and your Axe Magazine online would like to acknowledge that our institution sits on the homelands of the Kalapuya people.
In the Treaties of 1851 and 1854-1855, and the subsequent forced removals of many Indian people from western Oregon, some of the Kalapuya were moved to the Grand Ronde Reservation and some were moved to the Siletz Reservation. It is important to note that all of Lane County was an important trading and gathering area for camas and other resources.
During the Restoration Era, from 1977-1989, Lane County was designated at the Service Area for the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians, the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Indians, the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians, the Coquille Indian Tribe, and the Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Indians.
Eugene 4J District and South wish to acknowledge that descendants of the original and Service Area inhabitants of this land are still here today. They are thriving members of our schools and our communities. Countless members of other Tribes now also call our community and schools their home.
We wish to thank those original stewards of this land. We as outsiders on this land wish to remember that we need to take good care of this land and take good care of all members of our school district and community. Thank you for joining us.

How Countries Are Dealing With ‘Freedom Convoys’
On Saturday, January 22, truck drivers in Canada began to drive around Canada protesting vaccine mandates. Since then, radical groups in many countries have followed suit and started protests of their own while governments scramble to try to disperse them. In order to do this, different governments are trying different techniques. Some countries have taken more serious approaches to the situation such as France, where roadblocks and tear gas were used to scatter the protesters. In New Zealand, however, government officials tried a more peaceful route by playing music at their parliament building in Wellington. Songs such as “Let It Go” from the movie Frozen and “Baby Shark” were played along with “You’re Beautiful” by James Blunt. The latter has been played so many times at the protests that some of the protesters knew all the words and began singing along. While tensions rise in countries like France and Canada, New Zealand government officials and their protesters have come together, singing and dancing the “Macarena.” – By Marston Scher

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you have probably heard of Wordle, the addictive word game that has taken the world by storm. For many, it is a game that they look forward to playing every day, as the structure of the game makes it very engaging. Many people look forward to each Wordle reset, hoping that they will be able to get the new word in one guess! However, the structure of the daily game is precisely the reason why many people feel that they aren’t getting as much enjoyment out of the game as they could. As a solution, many other developers have created their own spin-offs of Wordle that people can play while waiting for Wordle to reset.
