  1. I ordered three. Two to share and one for myself. Just opened the package and I
    can feel already that your book is a gift.
    In your acknowledgements you say, “My Beautiful indigenous culture…” That made me feel good. Made me smile.
    The more I learn of our indigenous culture and traditions, the more beauty I see.
    Thank-you for writing this important book…
