Musings on KBOO Membership and More

Categories:

During this membership drive I've had time to think about why and how I am involved with KBOO.

[INSERT WAVY IMAGE AND DREAMLIKE MUSIC HERE]

2000. Recently divorced. Left the conservative church I'd been a member of for decades. Had started reading "radical" news like The Oregon Peaceworker.

By this time, I'd already been involved in my revitalized tribal culture for some time. (I remember the first powwow I had attended, bouncing my baby Tk-tk (Rachel) in my arms to the big drum that was the heart beat of the nations.)

I found my way to Portland, land of anonymity, where I could follow my passions for forest defense, nursing, and being free of the scrutiny of a small, conservative community. But I really missed my sweatlodge community in Coos County.
