Not sure what to say?

I wish i got to see you one last time...i miss you so much.

I love Catherine Attla. She was a beautiful woman, and an extremely important tradition bearer. Her stories are among the finest contributions to oral literature the world has seen. I've written a tribute to her on my web site. Condolences to her family. I'll miss her deeply.

It's been 25 years since I taught school in Huslia, and I can still hear Catherine's voice in my head. She and Steven were so kind to our family, and our son Christopher called them Grandpa and Grandma. Catherine's wisdom, warmth and kindness live on, and her influence spreads far and wide in ways she could not have guessed. Her joy in life and willingness to teach others will never be forgotten. Our deepest sympathy to Steven and all who love Catherine.

RIP Catherine, you will be missed dearly by your friends. My condolences go out to Steven and the family.

Everyone has heros, and Catherine has long been one of mine! I so admire all she knew and all she passed along to others about the ways to live in our land, and the old stories. She helped name my daughter NeeLot'neeyo, and always helped us out any way she could. We will miss her!
