So a long time ago... probably like at least 3 years i messaged either you or the photographer for permission to use this for a chalk drawing, I literally just pulled it out from under my bed and finished it hahaha, so i have photos if you'd like to see.
XD My tribes from Saskatchewon, It's Saulteaux. I live in a small area, where most people here (Prince Edward Island) are native to the island, they're mi'kmaq, so a lot of people here think I'm m'ikmaq I don't do much native language stuff, But I do some throat singing with my Native friend who's m'ikmaq. Out language is refered to Western Ogibwa Language. But otherwise, I only know the basics, like Miigwech (hello) and the dates of the months. It's kind of easy to do the dates, because it's usually just a sentance like "its the 3rd of the month", For example, today would be 'midaasogonagizi ashi niswi' As in it's the 13th of the month. Out of my family, I'm the most native. I spend all days in the forest, singing ( No matter how Pochahontas that may sound) and I climb tree's and hunt with a bow and arrow,spend time with animals (wolves favorably, but theres none on the island) all that fun stuff. I suggest you read The Gathering, Its a book about this native girl who can turn into a cougar, but doesnt find out till later, theres this guy, Rafe, and hes native too, and they live in a really really really small place, it's a lot like my life (Without the whole cougar thing x) ) But I got it for my birthday and I LOVE IT. It came out about 2 years ago. Where I live I have about 284 students in a school grades 8-12. I kinda hate it here but I love it. Anyways, Im rambling, Message me sometimes if you want (:
That sounds amazing!! Its strange though how you're from the Saulteaux but you live in P.E.I. I live in Ontario.... most populated place in Canada :-P I'm not native but I'm crazily obsessed with them. I even have a group called Wannabe-native Click the group icon if you want to see it:
The Gathering sounds great. I'll read it
Thanks for replying, you're a cool person. I'll add you and give you a watch....
