Meet Shannon Crossbear

My name is Shannon Crossbear, and I am a beautiful, powerful, spiritual Ojibwe and Irish woman. I live in Northern Minnesota; I have raised 6 boys, I have 4 of them who are still on this earth-walk; 2 are no longer on this earth-walk. I have 15 grandchildren. For my hobbies, I like to spend time with my grandchildren and I like to dance - I am a traditional dancer and I also participate in our traditional ceremonies. My plan at the end of my time working or being employed, is that I am going to sell tea-leaves, read tea-leaves, and tell stories, and sell snake oil.
