Right now I am enrolled in a teaching credential program here in CA. I am teaching 6th grade and will be in an elementary school for the fall. I have been married to my husband for 3 years in June (together for 10!) and we are trying to have a baby!
My family situation is wonderful. We have a much healthier and loving relationship than we did while I attended Red Cliff. And now that I’m looking to start my own family, I have a new understanding of what they went through with me.
I still have all of my Red Cliff journals (3 since I was out there so long. I was told I set the record at the time…) and my puaka. As you can see from my e-mail address, I cherish my Indian name to this day and it has become a huge part of my identity. After many abusive and unhealthy programs that I attended, I really felt that I was listened to by some of the staff at Red Cliff. I was never asked to do anything unreasonable or dangerous, and was never mistreated, unlike the other programs I attended. I know it’s a long shot, but are there any staff still there after
