A Night at the Rap Concert

Wow did we have a great night. We left the house at 4:30 and it was a beautiful sunny, warm, sunset. We walked into campus to see Litefoot (Cherokee Rapper/Actor)perform at the MU on campus. We were invited to the Longhouse for a pre concert potluck. Finn had a great time making (or eating) fry bread and being one of the "girls". The concert was awesome...little man kicked his feet to the music and doodle danced in the isles. It was such a great chance for Finn to see that being an Indian is more than what she sees on Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman. Litefoot even talked about the importance of respecting your elders and your roots. She was enthralled. He talked about the Cherokee Trail of Tears...and on the way I home I talked to her about how our family made a very similar journey to Oklahoma.

I put her on my shoulders during the concert and she just stared wide eyed. Well my kids can't say I'm not cool...I realized half way through the evening I was breastfeeding my son at a rap concert.
