Remember the earth whose skin you are, red earth, black earth, yellow earth, white earth, brown earth. We are earth.
Remember you are all people and all people are you.
Remember language comes from this.
I remember my parents who are:
My mother is a strong Athabascan from
the Yukon River.
My father is a strong
Neetsaii Gwich’in from
the Porcupine River.
I remember that they both came from strong families and with deep traditions.
Remember I am a Koyukon Athabascan and Neetsaii Gwitch’in child.
