I am the daughter of a woman who was raised in boarding school.
She was the daughter of a woman raised in a convent.
I am the granddaughter of a woman who ran a sweat lodge underneath a table.
She used roots, herbs, bones, and skins.
I am the niece of an auntie who runs the lodge naked.
She throws sticks in the night dark voices walk with her.
I am the little sister of a woman who was beaten by my mother,
abused by my father, and became a rag doll for her husband.
I am the aunt of a woman who came into my life as my little sister
She sun danced until I pulled the pegs off her arms.
I am the mother of a little woman who has fasted
year after year since the moon entered her body.
I am the grandmother of two, one who skates
like Bobby Orr and one who swims like a dolphin.
I am the wife of a medicine man the mother of a medicine man
the mother of a doctor.
I am a sister, an aunt, a flower, a thorn, a fire, a storm.
I am Mystery
