I have a friend who doesn’t like the  dream catchers in my room because her parents taught her that they were unspiritual taboo and it wasn’t culturally appropriate, me being a white girl from Minnesota. but I knew I had some native American in me because my grandfather’s father was.

so this weekend I pieced together my ancestry and found that I was the 6th descendent of a chief of the Chipewa tribe here up north. we even had a war not to far from where I live now with the Sioux tribe (that’s why I’m now a MN Gophers fan) so if you excuse me I will be making my DIY dream catchers and wearing colorful headdresses to music festivals with my fringed boots I got a Macy’s on sale.
