"When I was a little girl my father gave me a nickname, "Coyotita" which means "Little Coyote"" she says.

"This Saturday, January 21, 2017, she says she's bringing one of her many grandchildren with her to the Women's March in Boise.  It is a 'sister march' correlated to the Women's March in Washington D.C. on the same day, and hundreds of similar marches world-wide.

"I'm concerned with the kind of world my Granddaughters are going to be living in," she says, holding photos of 2 of her 5 grandchildren.
