Do you have a specific memory that stands out in your mind when you were young?
"Trust no one!" I am learning to get past that one. No real parental memories."

How is your life different from your parents or grandparents?
"I think I am a little smarter regarding technical items and live at a much faster pace. In some ways, my life is a little more dangerous."

What traditions from the past do you still continue to practice?
"Eating and giving thanks!"

What was your impression on having your photograph taken?
"It was nice to have a picture that will outlast me or my family. Sad though, that there are not too many of us left."

What do you see for the future?
"Tribal extinction. It is inevitable. Get all the pics now while you can, for we belong to a dying people."
