Question: I am Shoshone and was adopted at age 5. I was not raised in my culture but have studied for many years.
I want to adopt a young girl as my grand daughter and want to do it in Shoshone fashion. It is important to me to do it right!! I need some guidance in this matter.
Best regards
Dr Edie Hansen
