I was born on April 5, 1951 in Winnebago, Nebraska. I am the oldest of 12 children.
I am from the Omaha Tribe of Nebraska. I am from Thatada Clan which is the bird clan.
My Indian name is “We Hay Tong Ga” which means big sister. I am married to an Omaha
man, and on our anniversary on June 18th we will have been married for 49 years. I have two sons, ages 51 and 48 years old.
I am a recent graduate of NICC in Macy, Nebraska and I graduated in May 2019.
I got a lot of encouragement and good praise from the staff while going to school
here. Sometimes without that extra push from the staff, I may not have made it to
graduation. I am forever grateful to them.
I make my home here in Macy and have lived here since 1970. I was born in Winnebago
and grew up in Walthill, Nebraska. I graduated from the Walthill High School in Walthill,
Nebraska on May 23, 1969. Again, I can truly say that my Mother gave me a lot of encouragement
and pushed me towards getting my high school diploma. I love her.
