Day 06 — A fun fact about me

I am half Tlingit Indian which is an Alaskan Indian Tribe based off of Sitka Alaska.  I am of the Frog Clan which means I get along with all sorts of people- land and water creatures.  I always loved frogs growing up (I even had a pet frog named Toni!) and was so excited to learn that I was of the Frog Clan.  I have an ancestor who has a totem pole he made in the Smithsonian.  I have never been to Alaska and am ashamed to say I don't know a whole lot about my tribe and my people's history but I will go there someday and plan on learning more about this great heritage.  My dad has always taught me to be proud of my Native heritage and I truly am so proud of it!  (I even beat up a kid in daycare for making fun of Indians and my dad was so proud!)
