    I am told my gramma was born there on the top of the mountain. Ive been to one ceremonial dance. It was beautiful the elders were strong in SPIRIT....gracious very hospitable and friendly.great cooks organized i love them i felt strength and love i want my blood drawn but don't know how to do out not for money but to know my ancestors know my native language.
