My aunts, Mary and Carrie Dann, although they were leaders in defending the Western Shoshone people’s ancestral land against the federal government, were always my teachers and loving family. My mother, Barbara Jackson Ridley, was first cousin to Mary and Carrie. Their mothers, Sophie Dick Dann and Alice Dick Jackson were sisters.
