I read this account of our history, rembering life as a child and realizing my Mother teaching us that we were all children of God though we we were Indian .We were taught we were no better or no less other races.Our struggles made us know we should not judge but accept those that have respect for themselves and they also have respect for other people though they are different We learned education can be achieved no matter where the location is . Our people went to Okla. ,North Carolina ,New York & Philadelphia Otis R. Emery Tribal Member
