Who and what I am….

Contemplating identity in soul-changing ways – My DNA results are back. I didn’t realize the company I used only tested for European ancestry. From this test, my mt DNA Haplogroup traces back to the Sami and Norwegian people.

The question at hand is whether or not I will undertake another test for genetic lineage outside of Europe….only because I almost immediately regretted submitting my DNA this time. What and who I am is complex….I don’t know that the testing adds anything to my presence here in this time.

I definitely need to sit on this for a bit.

~ I am Anishinaabe-kwe with Scottish heritage and Sami DNA. I speak on the behalf of no one but myself. My ancestors inform and guide me. My voice is but one of many who are calling for change. We have much work to do to create a good space for the real human beings who are waiting to be born.
