  • Teen Vogue features Native girl. Nov.07 issue

    My lil sister Leela Abrahamson is in the November 2007 Teen Vogue issue. I am very proud of her, she has been through so much. Since we were all in the car accident that took the lives of my late husband Daryl Jack and my 4 year old daughter Maliah jack, she has managed to stay strong and keep her head up.
    Leela almost died in that accident to, the docs said that if she were out on that interstate ten minutes more she would've been gone. Yet she has managed to be an outstanding honor student in highschool. She won a 10,000 scholarship for college (in a state-wide veterans essay), she is on a youth violence committee and she plays basket ball as well as Fancy Shawl dances. She is feature in the "my life " section of teen vogue. Please support the whole concept of Teen Vogue using a "real" ndn girl in the media and get one today. Yes they did mess up some of her story..I think their idea of what she said may have been missed a lil..BUT THE ARTICLE IS GREAT!!!

                    She Who is in my Heart
                    by OneidaDreamer
                    She who is in my heart, what is she doing?
                    where has she been?
                    how has she been?
                    is she feeling well?
                    has she been sleeping well?
                    is she happy?
                    is she ok?
                    I know she waits, hopefully not in vain?
                    does she think of me?
                    is the longing too

                    The School Bus Driver who was shot by a 14 yr old boy, touched more hearts than she knew. I did not personally know her, but in her sweet manner that she treated the special students she worked with at the High School, she touched my daughter's heart. By my daughter's own words of saying that she will...

                    My oldest daughter graduated grade 8 today. She goes to a public school while I homeschool my other children.

                    Anyway I am very proud. I am sure others have kids graduating both grade 8 & 12 as well as college and share your pride here!

                    Over a year ago a lady came to me and asked me to make her a white buckskin wedding dress. (Traditional style) I said yes, then she decided she wanted her whole bridal party to wear traditional clothing, well wait, i guess she didnt care if the were traditional, as long as it was regalia. She wanted...

                    Pow Wow Poem

                    Posted by CherTribe

                    I recently attended a Pow Wow in Louisville, KY,
                    as I watched the dancers
                    the following poem began to form in my mind.
                    I was inspired by three women dancers.
                    The first was a jingle dress dancer
                    who I only...
