After a week traveling across the country, Nookmis/Aunty Kay and I are both back home in Ontario. The trip was a wonderful success and we were able to experience a lot of incredible firsts together. We will be forever thankful to everyone who contributed towards Nookmis/Aunty Kay's journey. We were literally budgeted down to the last dollar and cent for this huge trip. There was a point just before we flew out West where I was afraid that Nookmis/Aunty Kay would not have enough money for entire week long journey. But somehow, I miraculously scraped together some extra funds by digging deep into my savings and receiving a few last minute donations. I have good reason to believe my late mother/Ogitcheedakwe was watching over both of us from the Spirit World during the entire trip and shifting the universe to ensure we had enough money to go! But it was a bit stressful and nerve-wracking just before we left on the journey, wondering if Nookmis/Aunty Kay would be ok for zhoonya/money.
To everyone reading this blog who donated towards the trip, amounts both large and small, please rest-assured that a special thank you card is still coming. I'm also currently in the process of looking through all of the photographs (over 100 and counting) from the trip and editing together a media disk especially for Nookmis/Aunty Kay that will contain a compilation of all the photos and video clips from the entire epic trip!
Some major donors have already reached out to let me know that some of you are still have problems accessing and viewing the private videos posted to my YouTube page. The way around this problem is to subscribe to my YouTube channel by accepting my personal invitation which many of you should have already received via email or text message. If you have not received an invitation, please let me know. A friendly reminder that this special access for viewing private videos is for major donors only. You will need to accept this invitation to subscribe to my YouTube channel if you wish to view any of my private videos and other links. This might be the main problem for your viewing troubles and why many of you are having difficulty viewing the private videos.
Please take the time to reach out to Nookmis/Aunty Kay back at her home on the rez by giving her a phone call or visiting her in-person to talk with her about the entire experience of the trip. It was truly a special trip for her and she has many amazing stories to share with all of you!
Stay tuned everyone!!!
