just want to share-Bitsy was the only Hoopa Tribal Council member who would go and visit the people. He was always at mom's, he would walk from his and Leslie's house and head down the road and stop and visit. No other tribal council member as far as I know ever did that, went out of there way, just to get up close and personal with the people, either just to shoot the bull or see whats on everyone's mind. He was always smiling. Hoopa really did lose a really great Warrior. His shoes are going to be hard to fill. My heart goes out to Leslie and the Jackson Family.
