Tracy loved her children and was really proud of her boys. She was a proud Anishnaabe Kwe, who blended with the Rastafarian culture. She loved Rasta Roots reggae. She always had candles lit and loved burning incense. She was very artistic and enjoyed making crafts and often designed her own clothing. She produced a traditional hand drumming CD titled “Ode Min Kwe Singers”. She was very proud to have been a part of the documentary “RasTa: A Soul’s Journey” directed by Bob Marley’s granddaughter Donisha.
