It's been a long time since I've written from Outside the Belly. Our lives sort of tipped on its axis for awhile. Being Winnemem became harder than usual. But we got through it still believing that it's still the "hardest and the best life in the world" for us. So here lies Writer's Block, may it rest in peace, and with it, the weirdness of 2011.
I am a citizen of the Winnemem Wintu Tribe. I am a Nikkei descendant sansei (third generation);retired teacher, involved in the Winnemem tribal responsibility to Water, Salmon, and our belief that the Sacred is our Teacher. Working locally for human rights and supporting youth leadership.
