“what you don’t understand is that for the Indigenous person in your life, Colten is family. Colten is me. Colten is my brother. Barbara is my mom’s name. Barbara is my auntie. Barbara is our grandma. Tina is our niece, our little sister, our baby girl. What you don’t understand is when you survive genocide, everyone left is family” – Smokii Sumac (Feb. 22, 2018)
