This is our official first post! My name is Jenny, and if you are reading this, you support the wellness of the Native American communities, especially those within the metro area of Portland, Oregon. We are 5 women in pursuit of a grant to help our local Native American community to obtain funding for the betterment of their/our community. I (Jenny) will be the main writer in this blog, but the information will come from four other women with unique contributions of their own and maybe sometimes their creative inspiration will take over and they’ll write as well! If you do not know much about this rich culture, the organization we chose to help is called Discovering Our Story, and their website is full of history and their many missions they’ve taken on for their people.   www.discoveringourstory.org 

Now that our process is successfully moving forward, I will be glad to share our process, thoughts and feelings, and whatever we learn that is worth sharing…
