Read on to learn more about who Tillie and Jesse are, and tune in to hear their beautiful love story.   Oki, my name is Tillie Torpey. I am an enrolled member of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe and also a descendent of the Navajo and Rocky Boy Cree tribes. I was raised in Plummer, ID on the Coeur d’Alene Indian Reservation with both of my parents and two older brothers. Jesse and I have been married for about two years and together for three. We share four kids together. I also have my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, and I work as the Social Media Coordinator. Currently I am going to school for esthetics and will be graduating this April. As a hobby and passion, I love to bead and make moccasins. Jesse DesRosier Assinaipooyii (Cree Speaker) born in the month of the big snow I was given my Blackfoot name when I was 3 days old by my great, great grandmother Matooyoh’kimakii Mary Ground who lived to be 107. Since I was a child, I’ve had a deep interest in my Niipatapiisinaan kii Nitsiipuhwahsin “Blackfoot ways of life and Language” as well as expressing that interest through artwork. I am a graduate of the Cutswood Immersion School or “Niitsipuhwahsin” (2003, 8th grade) Later I graduated from Browning High School.  Afterward I served four years fighting dragons for Uncle Sam (in the United States Marine Corps) 2007-2011. When I returned home, I eventually started school in 2013 at the University of Montana Missoula, where I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Native American Studies. I then started working at the immersion school, Piegan Institute, teaching the Blackfoot language as well as Blackfeet Community College and online at Yale University. Artwork is another passion and I have been doing Ledger Artwork since 2015, incorporating traditional designs with contemporary themes. I have been very active in advocating for language, veteran health and Badger Two Medicine. I am a proud husband to Tillie Torpey and father of four amazing, wild rug rats. I am an amateur cage fighter and I believe there are many paths for healing trauma through language, artwork, and mixed martial arts. •  To view Tillie and Jesse's artwork, visit their artist pages on Instagram:·   Tillie's Artwork: @walkingthundesigns·   Jesse's Artwork: @pikuniboy_media•  If this episode made you reflect + relate + reimagine + smile, please share it with your circle so that others can enjoy this beautiful story. Connect with Talks With A Fox Podcast Community and Online Store at:·       Website: https://talkswithafoxpodcast.buzzsprout.com/·       IG: https://www.instagram.com/talkswithafoxpodcast/·       FB: https://www.facebook.com/talkswithafoxpodcast/·       Store: https://flyingchiefandfoxtradingco.com/ Thank you for connecting with us and for being part of the Talks With A Fox Podcast family!
