Remember do I when One Woman worked laboriously, persevering to lift up the SIFC now FNUC believing this bilingual/bicultural institution to be of a Sacred Nature.

Definitely She (Ida) would cry with gratitude an joy seeing the Young people of today Standing Up, determined to support this Sacred Institution the Our Elder Women and Men saw in prophecy as Our means of Surviving and making a Livelihood.
