Most people know about American Indian tribes through books, movies and plays. Children learned about Indian tribes, mainly in the month of November, right before Thanksgiving, saving the pilgrims who came across the ocean in search of religious freedom. Some people know about Indian tribes through their travels across the country, stopping in or near towns and reservations where Indians live, at tourist spots that offer one a chance to take a photo with an Indian, of Indians dancing, next to wooden tipis, or of the scenery. They buy trinkets, such as pottery or jewelry, drums and Indian dolls in buckskin clothes (oftentimes made in China) from Indian vendors and trading posts.

Earring Exhibit

Hello Dear Readers,

It has been a long time since I have last blogged and I do apologize for that, but life happens and I know you guys will appreciate that.  So much has happened since my last blog.  I have been promoted into management at my current job.  I have been working to reconcile some of my hang-ups from the past and have made great progress.  I am entering my last year of school and will finally have my bachelor’s degree by the end of the year.

One of the many things that I have been working on is my self-identity.  I have claimed the identifier of male-to-female trans-individual for the last couple of years and have really dug deep inside myself to find out who I am.  I have struggled a bit trying to find a happy resolution between that identity and how I define that label.  Many…
