In 1999 I traveled to the Niagara Falls area to see some native family I found in some letters to my mother. Since she was dying of cancer, having endured over 12 years including Chemotherapy and temporary remission. After arriving I consulted some history information and discovered "Walking the Ridge" a sacred Native tradition for braves to see if they were worthy to lead their people. You walk along a ridge that is only visible certain times of the year as far as your courage takes you.
In my case almost 200 feet out. I took a disposable camera to record this event and took several photos. Sadly the State Police weren't happy and took mos of the photos I had printed reminding me how dangerous it was and aside from my Native heritage I could not do this again.
I am the first Afro-Native American
child to attend the United Nations
International School [U.N.I.S.] in
Parkway Village, Queens, N.Y. from

by a car driven by a Russian in June 1960!

I was working for Velocity Express out of Teterboro, New Jersey at the time and one of my runs went from Federal Reserve in Moonachie N.J. to Fedaral Reserve on Vessy Street [Back of the World Trade Center complex].
Returning from Canada after handling some matters regarding my mothers Canadian Registry I delivered phone books for Verizon in North Buffalo, Grand Island, Tonawanda, Seneca Falls and Auburn. Early afternoon on 9/ 11 I was still in Auburn, N.Y. which saved my life
In 2011 I finally needed a concealed carry permit due to the dangers of medical & bank deliveries.
