Today is my dear friend Sarah's 50th birthday! We call each other "Twinnie" because our birthday's are on the 12th--although not the same month or year! We met as instructors at the then School of Native Studies at the University of Alberta and became friends. That was over 15 years ago. We both stopped working there in the early 2000's because we couldn't stomach the politics and the direction that the School was been taken. In addition to being the mother of 3 much loved and talented children, she continued on at university to get her Ph.D in Ed. Policy Studies. Sarah has been part of the Aboriginal Women's group Asani since the 1990's. She is so very talented in music, that it takes my breath away when I hear and see her sing and goosebumps rise on my arms! I've often compared her to Buffy St. Marie. I posted a video from Youtube on FB.
