|Comments||I am 44 years old, 5' 8 1/2" tall and weigh in at 214 lbs., and have dark brown hair and
nice eyes to match. I am a Native American of the Ocheti Shakowin, Lakota/Apache blood.
I would like to hear from anyone and everyone who could help me remain on my path while
in this place. I am seeking those that would help make this journey a good one. I remember
little about the teachings, but would like to learn more. I am not all that fluent in
my tongue, but would love to learn to read and write as my ancestors.
So that you may know a little more about me ... I was raised on and off the reservation of my aunts and father and grandfather, and during the school months I was at my mother's off the reservation. I guess you could say I was keeping up with the old ways and being a nomad, moving from place to place every six to eight months. I try not to deal in the negative side of life, always trying to be positive and give a positive side of things, and life. It is hard in this place where there is NOTHING but negative people, but Creator has shown me how to deal with it.
I am into all music and even play the trumpet and sing in the V.V.I. band. But I am drawn to the classic oldies and big band when I can tune them in. I miss being able to tune in a Native American station like I could in Arizona where I lived before coming out here.
I have taken a few trades to go with my profession of being a wrecker operator. I like helping people that is why I chose this business.
I will answer any and all letters that may come my way. I am a very open person. Let's be kolas, that's Friends!
|Interests||I love Mother Earth and all that she provides. I really love camping under Creator's night skies and having the Star People looking upon me and watching me. I do hand craft in the ways of my people when I can and look forward to my return to the free world. I will be bringing many things with me on this return to my people. I have also gotten a G.E.D. while in this place behind the razor wire, and once returned to the free, I will give back to Creator and Mother Earth. Will you walk with me?
I also like to read although most of my reading is about Native Americans of all Tribes and Teachings, because there are a lot of different men that come through here learning who they are as Native Americans. I am glad to tell them what I have learned and encourage them to seek out their own people once they are released from this place. Just as I did when I went to Elementary Schools and gave Native American talks during History for study of the American Indian.
Lecel epawacin yelo!
