This picture has a special meaning, as my grandmother was White Buffalo Woman, and my grandfather was an avid trapper with a special love, affection, and deep respect for Mother Earth. This is my tribute to all my grandparents and the beautiful memories, gifts, and talents they have left me with to make me who I am today. Gichi Miigwech to my great-grandparents Ida and George Barker, Grandparents Pearl and Donald Smith, and Grandparents Rose and Fred Wood Sr.
