Then hold your heart with an open smile. The tress and lakes will smile back at you. May your spirit shine for all the world to see.
Thanks for your post.... Leni Lenape

Thank you Diamond...I have never heard that proverb before.

Raised white?

Yes...the white American culture...I never felt I fit in. About 10 years ago I went to a powwow...the first beat of the drums opened a door for me...I felt like I finally came home. I did not mean any offense by that statement...but there is a difference in cultures.
