  • Hello world, this story is about my first born son and my only child as of yet. My son's name is Phoenix Whirlwind Two Bulls and he is my world, everything I do in my life is all for him. I want to do a little bit of a background on me first, my mother was from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and my father was from the Northern Ute Mountain Tribe in Ft. Duchesne, Utah. Unfortunately, I was unable to know my father's side of the family, but I feel blessed to have known and grown up around my Lakota roots. I am Lakota and I will die Lakota, and my baby will grow to know these ways and he will be a warrior someday for our people.
    I have a uncle who told me that my baby was coming way before I found out I was pregnant, and I didnt believe him because it seemed weird at the time. So, when I first discovered that I was pregnant, I was scared but I realized I was blessed with this little baby that was going to change me forever. I was raised by a single parent and if my mother could raise me and my brother without any help than I am sure I can do it. Everything I do in life since his birth I do it for him, I want him to be proud of me when he gets older. I am doing positive things to set up a good future for my little family and I appreciate my son's father for always being there for us.
    I know that there is a lot of negativity about coming from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and no matter what I will make my people proud of my son someday.
