I am a 4th generation Idahoan. Our grandchildren are 7th generation Idahoans (on my wife's side). My wife, Darla is a 5th generation Idahoan. We are the proud parents of 6 children and have 18 beautiful grandchildren.
I was born and raised in Tyhee, Idaho with the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes (Fort Hall).
I also lived and worked with the Lumbee Tribe in North Carolina.
I am a direct descendant through my Great, great, Grandfather James Thomas Martin's wife Mary (Dabney) to: Chief Running Stream and Chief Eagle Plume of the Powhatan Tribe (James River, VA) and Cockacoeske, Queen of the Panunky Tribe (York River, VA).
