That simple, naturalistic lifestyle can be a lot of work in the 21st century. It's amazing how long it takes to spin enough fiber to make an outfit...I'm still working on it.

Ready for this:
About half of me is made up of Irish and Native American (1/16 Cherokee and 1/8 Chippewa). The rest of me is Scottish, English, French, German and possibly Dutch.
If I'm not enough of a mutt, my husband also has Scandinavian ancestry, so my girls will just have to say "human," and maybe throw in "the sun hurts." (That bit of Native blood hasn't helped much.)

As for cool ancestry, my paternal grandmother's great or great-great-grandfather was a chief and a dog-sled mail carrier (interesting combo, eh?), we, too, are related to Jesse James (the outlaw, not the tv guy) and we have pioneer ancestors who pulled handcarts to Utah.
