Hello blog world. I am Sioux born for the Dine’ Start of the Red Streak clan. My maternal grandfather is Sioux and my paternal grandfather is Dine’ Red Running into the Water People clan. I grew up on the Dine’ Nation located in the northern corner of Arizona but currently live in Phoenix Arizona with my two girls and husband. My husband Wayne plays in a band Ethan 103 so you will most likely hear about the band in some of my posts. What I like: spending time with family & friends, a great game of Catan, geekdom, traveling, my iPhone, jewelry, Cacique bras, glitter nails, Indian country politics, binge-viewing, standing first row at a BUSH concert, and great food!
So what do I feel I have to offer to the blogging world?
My perspective. I read a number of fashion and mom blogs written by wonderful women and while the blogs are interesting I can’t always relate.
I follow Native bloggers and while I have a strong interest in their topics (usually related to social justice and politics in Indian Country) I haven’t seen many Native bloggers discussing other aspects of life. We each are shaped by our experiences of how and where we were raised, the situations we’ve faced in life, and I feel I can contribute to the blogging world as a Native woman.
The fact that I could be fashionable has been a recent realization. I’ve always had an interest in fashion but until recently quality plus-size fashionable clothes didn’t seem to be easily accessible, important to the fashion world, and marketed. In my venture these last couple years to discover quality plus-size clothes I’ve stumbled upon fashion forward blogs and it has sparked my interest. My hope is to showcase my journey through plus-size fashion as I acquaint myself with new styles.
I want my blog to be reflective the things I’m interested in like local events, entertainment (music, books, movies), my journey to a healthy me, my plus-size fashion experiences, places I visit, and showcase happenings with my family and in my life. I was once an avid LiveJournal user (many years ago) but I know writing a blog is different than writing in a journal so please bear with me as I navigate this new experience (feel free to offer me suggestions!).
You can follow me all over the Internet!
