Good evening folks!

First, thank you for all the RT, likes, and kind comments on my thread yesterday. It was a quick look at my life growing up.

For anyone curious, I reconnected with my bio family when I was 26. It was incredibly awkward at first.
I experienced huge culture shock. I grew up in Alberta and had never experienced the culture, climate or the traditional food.

I'll never forget my first meal at my Nanuk's. It was a caribou head. It was baked and served in front of me. I had no idea what to think.
I wasn't sure if this was a practicle joke, or if they were seriously wanting me to eat this. It wasn't until my 5 year old niece said "Oh! Caribou head!" and dug in without any qualms or questions. My pride took over. If a 5 year old girl could eat this, so could I.
