Journal entry 1


Dear Journal,
My name is Amita Lanana, I am 7 years old, I live in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I have one older brother Ajeet Lanana. And my parentís names are Achickeehobada and Aylen Lanana. We all live in a tent made with the skin of the dead animals we killed. I have a very uneventful day. I usually just watch what my mother does which consists of: Building, farming, crafting, hunting, harvesting, making tools and weapons, and healing. My father Achickeehobada is the tribe medicine man. He heals the sick, resets bones, and gives spiritual guidance.

I remember one day when I was with my father and we were walking around the community. Then he was called to go heal someone that had been burned badly from a fire. That was one of the greatest experiences of my life.
