Nzigos MARIETTA AUNTIE MARIETTA SUTHERLAND What are your teachings surrounding being an auntie? Share your stories of the sacred, proud and protective role you hold in embracing the safety of family. Auntie is the one who was there all along to help guide and teach you, who you can call on for advice, help and support, whose cooking reminds you of home and Nookomis, whose loud laughter and kind words lift you when you need it most. I try to be a good auntie to many in my circle whether that is in my extended family, my professional network, or the powwow trail. If I call you nephew or ‘my girl’, you know I have your back. I will share stories and teachings I may have learned along the way, help you get your regalia together or help you outfit your kids, and drop what I am doing to listen when you need me... Auntie is always up for a powwow road trip and long conversations as the miles roll on!
