'I Love Ancestry' is a powerful platform that empowers all of us to share our stories and learn from each other, while emphasizing the interconnectedness of the Native American and African American experiences. I commend you for your time and commitment to Native American and African American bloodlines and the education you provide on our past! I am honored to have met a diverse group of individuals through ‘I Love Ancestry’ and to honestly say that I have made a few lifelong connections. We all stand to benefit from the invaluable social and educational resources available through this community. When I think of ‘I Love Ancestry’ I am reminded of a quote by the late Wilma Mankiller, “I don't think anybody anywhere can talk about the future of their people or of an organization without talking about education. Whoever controls the education of our children controls our future.” Ah-ho for educating us to be proud of our past as we move into the future.
