Jennifer Goodtracks is a member of the Southern Ute Tribe. She sat down with her daughter, Brianna Goodtracks-Alires, for some stories, and advice on motherhood–including why cradleboards work so well for babies. We love the warmth and ease Jennifer and Brianna have with one another in this conversation.

Native Braids is a co-production of KSUT Tribal Radio and independent producer Adam Burke.
