Native Americans! 

Wow! It’s been a long time since I’ve wrote on here! Well I was talking to my grandpa’s girlfriend Marla on how I miss it there but don’t think I’ll go back, I’m still thinking about it though. Right now I’m trying to think🤔 I’m writing a 4 page research paper for my English class on Native American Genocide, I’m kind of stuck but I think I’ll get there eventually😂. Native American Genocide is one of my favorite topics to talk about, but the thing that really gets to me is when I see pictures of all the Native American’s laying on the ground dead! It’s like they treated us like we were nothing that we didn’t matter, “the only good Indian, is a dead Indian.” Something a U.S General said, I came across that tonight and it broke my heart💔😓 it makes me so sad to think that people before us thought our ancestors were just ignorant savages and we were better off dead.💔😞 I guess I connect with this research paper topic I guess. It’s hard but I feel like kids my age should know more about Native American Genocide..Well I guess I should get back to work on my paper  -MacKayla Sharon George

Good morning! I just got back from the community breakfast, it’s always great seeing the community come to together to eat with each other, I’m having my cup of coffee, watching the Golden Girls and rinsing beans for homemade Chili and Frybread!❤️ I haven’t wrote on here in awhile and I hope I can talk to everyone because I miss everybody, well I gotta go. I have to get these beans done and finish my coffee, I’ll write back again later tonight or tomorrow. I put these pictures on here for everyone to read. I like to look at them if I have a hard time or just need something to read.❤️ well have a good day now..-MacKayla Sharon George

good afternoon everyone, today is going to be another great day. Yesterday I brought my uncle to eat and China Palace and I bet him $10 to eat some hot stuff and it was so hilarious😂 and we went to Walmart, Friday we went to eat at Old Country Buffet and went to the movies. Today we are going to th mall today go run around and do something. I’ve been working on crocheting a bunch of baby turtles so I’ve been doing that. I took a break from crocheting for awhile because it hurt my wrist and my hand kept cramping up. It still does hurt and cramp when I do crochet but I love doing it and it hard sometimes.m, but I’ll take a 10 minute break and start crocheting again. So yup that’s all I have to say. Have a great day 😐😁❤️

well I’ve been working and doing Drivers Ed and oh my gosh I’ve been so tired😴😴 but I’ve managed to get through, I look so tired in the pic but that’s cause we got home late and I was paranoid because we went and watched Sinister 2 last night.😂 but everything’s been going good and fun I just get tired fast with Drivers Ed and work. But they are basically paying us to do our family history. We read a book it’s called The Lummi Elders Speak, and I found my great great great grandma was in it her name is Elizabeth Tom Martin she was born in 1905 she used to make baskets with her mom out of cedar limb when she was younger and get the roots to make smaller baskets. I also found her brother in there my great great great uncle his name is Isadore Tom he was a healer, at about 10 or 12 he start getting his Indian education and later on he had to go seek his gift and go out and stay in the woods, fast, and go in the water, He was a healer. Now uncle Isadore and grandma Elizabeth had an older sister that’s my great great great aunt her name is Emma Tom Smith she was born in 1901 she remembered seeing long houses. She remembered seeing one at portage that’s also where her mom and dad lived, it also said that their parents my great great great great grandparents owned portage at  one point but sold it cause they needed money. That’s what I have to present at work for my presentation. The pictures are of Uncle Isadore and Grandma Lizzie.

I was up talking with Marla last night, today she’s gonna bring me to visit my mom and then probably go to Walmart to get stuff for her moms memorial, it’s at the end of this month so we’re going to try and get stuff done for that. I’m going to crochet some things for that and then hopefully we’ll get some crafts today for it, HEY I almost forgot my first week of work went GREAT!
