ABOUT OUR FAMILY
I come from a family of six kids and am the sixth child. I am the most affected of all the kids. I consider the people of the Laguna Reservation my family because they always been there for me. They have never given up on me, even when I gave up on myself. They are there when I want to talk. I am proud to be Pueblo.
Pueblo tradition says that their people have always been there. The Spanish name, Laguna, translates to lagoon and is derived from a lake that was once located on the pueblo lands. The people refer to themselves as Ka-Waikah or Ka-waik, meaning “lake people,” though the lake has long since transitioned into meadow lands.
By having the tribe as my family I know I am loved my so many people. We all love each other and we talk together and we are there to help each other.
Hold on to what is good,
Even if it’s a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe,
Even if it’s a tree that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do,
Even if it’s a long way from here.
Hold on to your life,
Even if it’s easier to let go.
Hold on to my hand,
Even if someday I’ll be gone away from you.
-A Pueblo Indian Prayer–
Trying to get together and be there for each other. It is easy to be too busy and not be really present.
Not to have the medical issues that come with family heritage and FASD
FASD also hurts the one who caused the situation. We must love on another.
