I am Judi Brannan Armbruster, direct descendant of Ah Ish K' and "Shorty", both registered full bloods of the Karuk Tribe of California. My Father was Weldon Edward Brannan, last of my line to be accepted on Tribal roles.

I have dreamed of being a writer since I was very young. In a poor family, I was told I had to learn how to support myself "in case" I never married. Much of what I wrote in my early years was laughed at and discarded, even by me.

Eventually I found my way home to the Karuk ancestral lands, and to my true voice. My life's journey is about surviving and Re- Covering. I can honestly say it has been hard, but never dull. I thank The Great Mystery, my wonderful husband, Duane, and my beautiful daughter Phaedra that I am here to sing my spirit songs.

I write about my connection to this beautiful land and the peace that lies within it.  Peace is something that begins inside of us and moves outward like ripples on a pond. In observing Nature I find the answers to the riddles of life.  Lessons are often cruel as Nature works her wonders.  I believe in those cycles, and that life will go on.
