  • I'am a Native American from Pine Ridge S.D. I graduated high school in 1982 from Red Cloud Indian School, located on the Pine Ridge reservation. I'am the youngest of 6 siblings. I left the reservation 2 weeks after I graduated from high school, moved away for 12 years then decided to move back home where all my family lives. I'am the mother of 3 children, Ashley L. Jones, Auston C Jones and Jonathan R. Jones. I lost Jonathan when he was 4 yrs old due to getting ran over, he would have been 16 years old right now had he survived and theres not a day that goes by that I do not think of him. I'am currently back in college for a bachelors degree in social work, once I finish I want to be able to help mynative poeple. I also pushed my two older children to go on to college, which they are and they are doing really good with thier lives off of the reservation. I hope to finish my education and live a fullfillin life from here on out.
