Languages Lumbee, English/American, Learning Lakota, Learning Cherokee  
About Me I am a mixed blood Native American having Waccamaw, Lumbee, and either Cherokee or Choctaw blood. I am learning my heritage and doing my best to practice the religion, beliefs and lifestyle of my ancestors.

I am a Member of the Waccamaw Indian Peoples of South Carolina & am a volunteer member of their Arts & Crafts Committee.

My name is Algonquian (the Cheyenne are one of the tribes that spoke this language) and means "one who cries".

I prefer a very simple lifestyle. We should all live as simply as possible so that all others have the chance to do so also.

My family was wronged by CPS and I fight that battle on a daily basis. I try to educate all I can as to their rights and point them to the proof of those rights.

I make Native American items for sale, trade and gifting. Bead Loom work and small leather items and cloth dresses and shirts.

Other crafts I do are crocheting & knitting.

With ten children, there are lots of grandchildren!
