Early on the morning of Feb 11, 2015, while preparing
her regular breakfast open to anyone
visiting, 85 yr-old Grandmama Anita Elatsoe Soto's kitchen caught fire.
She tried to put it out and suffered minor facial
burns and smoke inhalation. Damages to fix will exceed
$40K. Anita Elatsoe, matriarch of the Lipan Apache Tcha'shka ozhaye (Poca Ropa) Band
and grandmother to everyone, needs you help in donations to and/or
sharing of her GoFundMe.com page
