He was taught to respect the lands and water and never to leave scars on our earth
She was the daughter of poet, writer and fiddle player that instilled in her the belief of
Greater Spirits and the importance of keeping journals that would be handed down to
those she would bring into this world
Two opposites that joined together and raised a large family
While working together to protect the lands and water and still be able to feed and raise
Even when he lost his arm they kept the family strong and she managed with whatever could
be grown, fished or hunted
They worked together to understand the traditions of both families and make them the
tradition of their family keeping all sacred.
They lived a long and fruitful life.. Protecting our earth, waters, and all living things, never
wanting more than was needed to make it through each day
They never knew a stranger and their doors were always open to those in need.
They were my rock when my parents struggled.. They taught me to enjoy the peace around
me and if i was stressed to seek my peaceful moments as they did under a tree, near a river
bank, walking a sandy beach, or on top of a mountain. They taught me we are all family no
matter the color of our skin. that we have a job to protect everything the lands the waters,
the air, all creatures on land in the air or the water.
They were one until they were called home.
