The Gitxsan are matrilineal, meaning that kinship is based on the female line. I belong to the Ganada or Frog Clan because my mother, her mother and so on were Ganada.

 

As a Gitxsan woman, I learned much from my Grandmother, Nora. She was such a beautiful human being. I still miss her very much. She taught me how to love my children by loving me. When I think about being with my Grandmother, I feel very Blessed to have known her. Her Spirit lives on through my children and their children. She showed me how a Matriarch holds herself in the nation, the community, in the family and in her house.
