Surrounded by the grandfather rocks the mother of the family gives thanks, by offering some tobacco, to her Creator, and her Great Ancestors. A small bird, by the name of Whiskey jack takes in all that is happening. The family enjoys making fire & cooking wild meat & fish over the open fire. The great Ancestor watches over the land making sure everyone is safe out on the land.
“We watch over one another, spending time together out on our Ancestors land. Family is time to hunt & fish and go camping out on the land. Family is being grateful for one another and loving each family member in a positive way, always.”
