INTRODUCTION

Hi, my name is Oheo, which means “beautiful”. I am ten years old and I live Eastern woodlands with my mom and my cousin. I am from the Iroquis tribe. My cousin's name is Garakanthie but I usually call him Gara for short. His name means beaming sun, I am pretty sure he got that name because he was born when the sun was beaming and moving against him. And he is about to turn 16. My mother is 41 and her name is Dehhewamis which means pretty girl or Handsome girl. I always get so jealous when someone says her name because she has the prettiest name I have ever heard and she got that name because when she was born she had the prettiest smile on her face. And my father even though he is not here anymore he is at least still in my heart. He past away when I was just born all my mom mentions about him to me without balling her head off is his name which is Deganawida that means two rivers currents flowing together and my mom told me why he got that name but I didn't really listen to her, but also she mentions how my dad passed away. She does cry a little bit but not too much. I think he died when he was hunting with Gara, I am pretty sure when he was trying to shoot a bear it attacked him. Gara saw him die right in front of his eyes that is why he does talk about it much.  Even though living in the Eastern woodlands has its downsides, I still love it here and I would never want to leave.
