on a deeper note

on identity

i have a unique relationship to identity: i was adopted in southern New Mexico and raised on lands surrounded by the Pueblo Territories, also known as Albuquerque.  i do not have a formal affiliation to one Nation or Tribe, the only link i have to my Indigeneity is through ongoing DNA research that locates my roots of origin between México and north america.  as i continue my journey of research and discovery surrounding my adoption, i am proud to embody and practice the teachings from my homeland, my family in Jemez Pueblo and the visions passed down to me from the Ancestors i have only greeted in my dreams.
