Happy National Aboriginal Day from an NDN Girl in Suomi!
I am biracial (white / Ojibwa). My grandma’s reservation was in Canada but I was born and raised near Detroit and am currently living in Finland. It’s hard living so far away from your family and country, even harder when you’re literally the only Native in your community, but it’s given me a lot of time to really focus on who I am and what’s really important to me. No matter how far away I travel, I am always Native. I will never lose sight of what is really important.
