I live and write on Lingít Aaní, and gratefully acknowledge the past, present and future caretakers of this beautiful place, the Jilkaat Kwaan and Jilkoot Kwaan.


“You hear a lot of dialogue on the death of the American family. Families aren’t dying. They’re merging into big conglomerates.”- Erma Bombeck
And.. a word of advice to mothers of all stripes from my Mother’s Day card: “It’s all fun and games until someone winds up in a cone.”
Happy Mother’s Day from our conglomerate to yours.
