Ohio Festivals Starting Up in March 2017

Who Are Your People?

I found this video while tooling around on the internet, researching a writing project.  One thing led to another and … well, here we are.  It’s time for you– no, us to Rethink our Heritage… I know some people are quick to connect with a lineage they’ve researched back to the mother land Africa.   Which is cool;  but, what about right here in the good ol’ U.S. of A.?  Have you taken a close look at your Native American heritage?  For us to really know ourselves, we should really take a closer look into our whole heritage.  It can really be fascinating.
