  • Offerings to gather and share: Yarrow, tobacco, coffee, a comforting song or melody that you were taught as a child.


Viewing Suggestions:

  • Thank you for sharing your family history and your journey. It was so beautiful I was in tears with joy. I can feel how much your mother loves her family and misses her father. And you get to actually hear your grandfather’s voice!? Amazing!
    It is apparent that educating others runs in you like your grandfather. Beautiful!

    Did you feel more connect with your ancestors when you went back home?

    Will you be visiting your home more often?

    I have been seeking my own family lineage for years to feel the connection. This, your story snd videos gave me hope again… Arigato
