When Geneva was a kid, her grandparents, aunts, and uncles would remind her how lucky they were to live on their tribal lands. Geneva and her family are part of the Yurok tribe — they’re the largest Native American tribe in California with almost 5000 members.
Growing up, Geneva felt a responsibility to protect her homeland, to look out for her people, and to make sure her future kids would have a strong connection to Yurok traditions and her ancestral village of Requa.
Tune in to hear Geneva’s quest to ensure her future kids’ tribal membership. There’s fish, jello shots, and a real life made-for-Disney kind of love story.
