Missing Nimama

Nôhkom is teaching me to make fry bread. I stand on a chair at the kitchen counter and measure flour into her green mixing bowl.
"Your mother loved to cook with me when she was your age," she says.
"Does my mother speak Cree?" I ask.
"She does," nôhkom says. "Just like you."
"Did you tell her trickster stories, like you tell me?"
"Of course, kamâmakos. She liked Wisahkecahk stories best."
"Just like me!" I say. "Did you teach her beadwork and shawl dance?"
"I did." Nôhkom smiles at me. "Your mother is a beautiful dancer, Kateri. Just like you."
"Can we look at your photo albums, nôhkom?" I ask. She smiles as she takes one off the shelf. I climb off my chair and onto her lap and turn the pages, looking at my mother. When she was little, she looked just like me.

Thank you, nimama. Thank you for taking care of my child after raising your own.
Thank you for cooking and cleaning and doing laundry and buying birthday gifts and drying tears.
Thank you for telling Kateri about me.
For sharing stories about her mother with her.
For reminding her how much very I love her.
For not letting her forget me.
