Native American.

 So as of a couple of years now I have been rediscovering my own heritage, I am a quarter Cherokee, but as Agitsi (my mom) describes it you can’t be a little Cherokee, either you are or you are not. So with this information I finally felt confident enough to start learning the culture. I have learned how to cook typical reservation recipes, make pinch pots, some of the language, and my absolute favorite I learned how to make double wall baskets! I have never really been into crafts, but this goes beyond crafts its a tradition. To feel so connected to the past is a beautiful thing, to look back and learn from those who came before us so we can make the world a better place for those that will go beyond us. So at the close of this post I urge you to learn where you came from, so you can pass this knowledge on, after all the only ones that can make history are the ones that care to tell about it.
