Inspired by Joy Harjo’s poem “Remember”
“Remember you are evidence of her life, and her mother’s, and hers.”
Always remember here in the Interior of Alaska in our Native Cultural ways of life, we children always go by our Mother’s side, not our Father’s. Do some research and study from your mother’s family tree. Get to know all about your ancestors from you mother’s side. I did my research and found out that on my mother’s side, I’m actually from Dawson City of Canada. Your ancestors are who you are, where you actually come from. You will be surprised who your great great great mothers truly are.
