I’ve said it before, there’s nothing cooler than apes in comics. Comic book publishers know it, readers know it, and even Hollywood has jumped on the ape bandwagon again (see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.) Since Edgar Rice Burroughs first planted poor baby Greystoke in the middle of the Mangani (great apes) tribe off the coast of Africa, spectacular simians have been a huge part of our pop culture heritage; and at the recent Phoenix Comicon I happened to come across one of the most awesome ape adventures of all.
The Muscogee Nation of Florida is a tiny aboriginal people group of the Americas who seeks to hold to their heritage while surviving the culture around them. The Muscogee are led by an indomitable woman named Ann Denson Tucker. Ann directs the Tribal Council, serves as the public face and living historian of her people, and plays the role of chaplain, social worker, and attorney for the tribe. Ann has sought official recognition for the Florida Muscogee from the United States Department of Indian Affairs for many years now. She doesn’t want much more than that – just an acknowledgment of their existence. She sometimes wonders how long, if at all, that recognition will be in the making.

TAOS, N.M. — To winter sports enthusiasts, Taos is best known for its challenging ski slopes. But this northern New Mexico town has plenty more to offer visitors year-round, on and off the slopes.

It's a town where new-age nomadic hippies, (referred to locally as "sage monkeys") peacefully coexist with artists, natives, daredevil skiers and even wealthy Texan tourists. Here are five free things to do and see on your next trip to Taos.
