A dream last night gave me a story idea...

I had this crazy-good dream last night that I didn't want to wake up from.  It had two Native American children in it, a brother-sister duo with special abilities.  The brother had super speed, and the sister had telekinesis.  Throughout the dream, they were fighting this kidnapper off and trying to get back home to their parents and other Tribal members.  The more and more they fought this person, the more super abilities came out.  The brother also ended up having super strength, and the sister could summon fish friends with a sonar ability.  By the end of the dream, they both could shape-shift.  The brother shifted into a bear, and the girl got away by turning into a small bird.

One thing I remember about the children is they were related to the Shaman of the tribe, and their mother was the newest Wise Woman of the Tribe.  I woke up thinking they had "Magic In Their Blood" which is what I want to title the story once I flesh out the idea, and get it into book form.

After I woke up, I went to the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indian website to see if I could find a book about some of their native stories since that was the reservation the children in my dream were associated with.  They do offer each member a book about the Tribe's history for new members, but I haven't been enrolled yet.  I'm still trying to prove my ancestry to join the Cherokee Nation.

I did find this page when I was browsing the site that I hope will provide me with some of my research.  At most, it will give me a background of the Siletz Indians to start from.

  1. "Magic in Their Blood" sounds like a great idea for a book! I think some research is in order ;)
