In 1985 I led a successful campaign to have the Northern Raven declared the official bird of the Yukon.
Bill #12 The Raven Act was passed in the Yukon Legislature in November 1985.
I'm known as The Yukon Raven Lady. Raven is my spirit guide.
A little verse I penned this afternoon.
A little gem I penned 35 years ago. "whither goes the winter rose"
June 21 2023: Happy Summer Solstice from the Yukon! On the longest day/night it doesn't get dark in the Yukon. The sun just circles the horizon. That's why they call us The Land of The Midnight Sun. These pics of my front door were taken at midnight in the #Yukon on #Solstice 2022 & 2023. #YukonFact
June 19 2023: Enjoying the summery beauty of the Yukon and the 24-hour Midnight Sun but we're only a day away from the longest day! Already?
Doc and I had a lovely stroll through our self-perpetuating #Yukon flower garden this aft. Very low maint. No watering. No weeding. And the Junipers are in full bloom! #YukonFact #YukonDoc #Flowers #Dogs https://yukonpoetlaureate.com
Family isn't always about blood but about the heart.
I am blessed to have a very large tribe.
I stand blessed and equal among them.
