2000 Contest Entry
My role models are my grandmother and my grandfather. My grandmother has helped me with many things. She has given me support when I needed it, and she has also helped me with family problems. My grandmother has also taught me many things. She has taught me how to cook things I did not know about. She has also taught me how to plant crops and make native jewelry.
My grandmother and my grandfather have told me a lot of native stories about native people around the world. My grandfather has also taught me many things. He has taught me how to clean rabbits, hunt big game animals, and speak a little of the native language. My grandmother and my grandfather would take me for walks to see some animals. They would always tell me about the great native spirt that was watching over my brother and me. Thatís why I admire my grandparents.
