One of my favorite memories is spending time with my Grandma at Six Nations Reserve in Ontario, Canada. She and I would sit at the breakfast table talking until we’d notice it was almost time for lunch. She told me her personal stories and those about the Six Nations. She was a very strong woman who was very connected to the spirit world. One of the gifts she made and gave to me was a quilt. It is very worn but I will always keep it. I loved her very much and miss her.
