    “you Better Take Care Of Me Lord, If You Don't You're Gonna Have Me On Your Hands.

    I was woken this morning at 4:30 with a black bear crashing through my parent's old wooden fence to feast on our crab apple tree. My parents house is right above a river full of pink spawning salmon and like myself after a good meal, he needed some dessert. I haven't always lived...

    Metis - In Between

    The white people don't like me 'cause I'm part native.  The natives don't like me  'cause I'm white. IT IS NOT MY FAULT....BUT I CAN CELEBRATE BOTH CULTURES & TRADITIONS.
