Ever since I can remember, I have been fascinated
with the Native American culture, history, and the arts and crafts. I
have always loved the old myths and lore. The stories were magical, and
are still passed down to the newest generation. One of the first things
I did when I first got on-line was look for Native American sites, and
I found plenty! I thought I would put these on a page for all to enjoy.
I apologise for the slow loading of this page. It is very graphic intensive,
because the graphics I borrowed from Sam
Silverhawk and Poison's
Icons to make it are so beautiful!
Trail of Tears began just a few miles from where I live now. The house
that John Ross
(principal Cherokee Indian Chief) lived in is also just a few miles from
where I live. It still stands, and is a historical marker. North
Georgia and the surrounding counties have kept the history alive and
preserved much. I am grateful for it, and it makes this area even
more beautiful to me.
maiden name was Cloud. I have Cherokee ancestry from my father's side
of the family, and Micmac (or Mi'kmaq) from my mother's. I am very proud
to have this blood running in my veins however little there is. But more

for the land.I never said the land was mine to do with
as I choose.The One who has the right to dispose of
it is the One who has created it. I claim the right to live
on my land and accord you the privilege of returning

Americans may be called the 'invisible people', but their wondrous and
beautiful words, like the eons of Earth's life they have seen, will not
fade or be swallowed by time. They belong to a people who have always
cherished the land, who listen to it; in the sound of water or the sheen
of a river stone. Nature's song is pervasive and faithful. It has a memory
in its own language, as well as a story to tell."
