Legacy....


I was fortunate to be able to visit Juneau, Alaska, last year for a NAGPRA meeting. During a canoe ceremony, I spotted this Tlingit kupuna with her mo'opuna, her grandchild, who holds in her little innocent face, and growing heart, all the promise for a more forgiving and loving world. 

I miss my own grandmother greatly, only sustained by the faded childhood memories of unconditional love and attentiveness, not fully understood or appreciated in my youthful priorities. If only I had a second chance. Love you grandma and miss you. Hope you can read this...
