The Fort of Young Saplings: Vanessa Veselka writes about family, the ownership of stories, and the meaning of military victory (or its absence) in the context of her father's adoption by the Kiks.ádi. (Veselka previously and previously, caution on the latter for sexual violence.)

This is FANTASTIC. Thank you.

(The Kiks.ádi are Tlingit in Alaska, and Veselka's father was adopted by the Kiks.ádi when she was very small. Her family left not too long after. It's a fascinating piece.)

There's a relevant post on Rumple's (Mefi's own!) blog about this: The survivor camp of the Russian frigate Neva
