During our visit, we also became better acquainted with my relatives from the Nez Perce Indian Reservation. I've known Janet for many years, but to be quite honest, we only see each other once a year during the winter dance. I see my cousin Arrow even less than that. In fact, after all these years, I've only been to Janet's house one other time.

Of course the Ecuador youth got a once in a lifetime experience by visiting the lodge, but their presence also opened the door for me to know my own relatives better. In my heart, I have to thank them for bringing me closer to my own family identity.
