Hi There...
 
Hi, I am Rosie and new to Pow Wow. I am wasn't raised with the opportunity to know about my heritage due to location and etc. My uncle is the one who back tracked our history and took the steps in learning about who we were. I bugged him to tell me about it... but living in Northern California, I didn't get much of a change to experience anything. When he had his bike accident, my daughter and I went to Arizona to help him. While there, my daughter and I were invited to do our first sweat. It was an experience I will never forget. Since then my uncle has passed away... and I was left back where I started, back in California and knowing nothing. Anyway... I'm here out of curiousity... and thought I would introduce myself... Hi I'm Rosie...

Thank you for the welcome Furiously-Fancy.

Joe's Dad - I can come out and ride my bike... lol. Thank you for the welcome. Not sure what answers I am looking for, don't have questions yet... heh.

My interest/hobbies change all time... it was cars for a bit until mine decided it was going to stop working. heh If you don't mind me asking. What part of California are you in?

Joe's Dad 02-09-2005 10:39 PM

Between LA and Santa Barbara

CHEROSAGE 02-13-2005 02:43 AM

Good to have you visit with us. Hope you will have a good time. I see you know your tribe. We have just about every tribe represented on this site. Maybe someone can give you some info about your family. I knew a very kind Yaqui elder. He is now passed but still a good memory.

Please ask any (?) and someone can try to answer it for you.

welcome to the site. you will have questions later and there are a lot of good people to answer those questions. enjoy the site.

R0SIE 02-13-2005 08:46 PM

Joe's Dad - I am from the Bay Area.

Cherosage - Thank for your the Welcome. Hopefully, I will be able to learn more. I feel so ignorant when it comes to my heritage, and it bothers me. I wasn't able to get much informations from my uncle before he passed. He was the only one close with my Great Grandfather. It would be nice to find some contacts near me, but I have no idea where to do.

Curiousity - Also thank you for the warm welcome. I am glad I found this site. I was a little nervous about posting here... I am glad you all are friendly afterall... (I read a few of the other first posts... "White Gal Question", "Hello"... LOL).

Joe G 02-13-2005 10:16 PM

Hi Rosie...try this one here: www.pascuayaqui-nsn.gov may be at least a starting point...good luck...

Joe's Dad,
I know how corny that sounded but I figured that Rosie would happen to known my long dead father. It was a one in a million shot since I found out he died in 1987. So, I'll just have to go on with my miserable life, lol. I hope that I don't sound too cynical but since this is the cyberworld, we take all chances we wouldn't otherwise, right? And since my mother mentioned that my father was Yaqui (she might've been lying to make me feel better) which I haven't figured into my halfbredness since I'm enrolled with the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe already.

Joe's Dad 02-15-2005 09:25 PM

My Bad!
 
Dude, I apologize....Just thought it might have been one of your QSW questions! Hey I hope ROSIE is that one in a million chance. Sorry.

Don't apologize for it just happened that my question would sound like a QSW question and that's the way I wanted it to happen. I'm so twisted that even the truth is quirky, lol.
