hey yall! its sara here- welcome to my takeover! i figure before we get very far, i would start at the beginning. i live in southern tn now but im from Louisiana. i used to think i was just from new orleans, but i have ancestors from all over- cane river, campti, pearl river, houma, slidell... to name a few. the folks in the picture are rosemary evelyn montrieul green, verlida mae bertrand mckendall and hermond mitchell mckendall. the first picture is a sign i took when i spent a weekend at L'eau Est La Vie Camp summer. it was hectic and stressfull but the time spent in the swamp had its magical moments. the damage to the place my people call home is devastating, but i know the resistance is stronger #fightforwhatyoulove

Helen bought the Ranch, in 1975. From then until when she retired, Helen worked during the week in the city and then commuted up on the weekends to work the land. She was aided in that endeavor by a group of women, who together built infrastructure, raised animals and vegetables, and put on music festivals. This is @kellenkaiser (the baby in the last pic) posting for #countryqueers. at Hopland, California

Helen was born in 1925, in San Francisco. After her father died, when she was 8, she stayed briefly on a sheep ranch in the Delta. That visit ignited something transformative in her city girl spirit. Many years later, she would become a rancher herself. These photos, from 1967/8, show her love of nature and general bad-assery were there even before she bought the Ranch in the 1970s... This has been @kellenkaiser posting for #countryqueers at Hopland, California
