Day 115 - Sis
I really miss not being around my tribe, Amah Mutsun, in California. Making jewelry was one of the things some of us could do to earn money for the tribe's financial needs and for regalia. Making this type of jewelry is something that gives me pleasure in the ability to contribute and the circle of company it brings into my life. Hundreds of hours sitting around a table with tribal relatives sharing ideas, stories and some of our language we have learned, which gives us pride in who we are and where we came from.
