Personal Quotes (2)

One thing you learn about out here is not to take yourself so seriously. You learn to live in the moment.
Discussing her role in "DreamKeeper" (2003): They allowed a Native woman to not be the victim. Since we're Cherokee and we're matrilineal, that really spoke to me. I was just so happy to play a strong Native woman because I know so many of them, and yet when Hollywood makes a movie we're never strong women. We're always the victim.
