We have returned home to Fort Yukon, and already, things are looking good for us.
Yesterday, a hawk flew across the road in front of me and a friend, clutching a vole (like a mouse).
My friend is Chippewa. She got really excited and exclaimed, “A good omen! – a bird crossing your path with prey in its grasp means plentiful food in the coming year!”
It’s so good to be home where the signs of nature mean something!
