About me

I am an Anishinabe woman from the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians in Northern Minnesota. I’m also of Swedish, Finnish, and Norwegian descent from my father’s side. My greatest joy is being a mother and raising my two children, Eloise age 8 and Daniel age 5, to be proud of their heritage, and to love and look out for others.
