They Sang a Warrior Song for Her, is a poem I wrote as a result of doing so much Yakama War research, including the women that were in the war, and why the war was started, which was violations against Native Women and children. This is about a promise to never forget our history.
Here is a selection of my poems, including the one It's Never Too Late: A Life Story. I read this poem for a talent for both Miss Yakama Nation and Miss National Congress of American Indians, titles I carried from 1999-2000.
