Natives - Oratory, Quotes, Insights, or Achievements
As many of you know our reservations have many dogs that do not get to see a Vet or treatment of any kind. I found this link and I wanted to share with all of you. You can make a difference by donating a small amount to help our people and help keep their dogs safe and well. I hope you all can help. Aho!

Clan kinship followed the mother's side of the family. The children grew up in the mother's house, and it was the duty of an uncle on the mother's side to teach the boys how to…Continue
