Tsiya?

Tsiya is Tsalagi, Cherokee, for Otter. That's me, just as much as Bob is, and sometimes more. This is a picture of my Grammaw, Dora Launa Smith Pepper.
There are Smiths, and, there are other Smiths, from different times and places.
Redbird Smith was a leader of the Tsalagi, near as I can find my Grammaw was one of his line. Redbird was a blacksmith, back in a time when your last name had something to do, with what you did.
I don't mess with genealogy much these days, I used to, but it just gets too complicated.

Tsiya says: "... education really depends more, on curiosity, and tenacity, than on the time spent putting in lecture hours."

Amen.
