Toughest Gwichin


She was as tough as rocks

my great grandma 

Margaret Blackfox.

She was the toughest 

Gwichin

‘cause any race she can 

win.

Didoo doesn’t like to sit

that’s how come she’s fit.

Didoo was hard to beat

‘cause she was an athlete.

Didoo was just too fast

An’ she never comes last.

When she reached the 

finish line

she left all the men 

behind.

When Didoo entered in a 

race

she always came in first 

place.

Didoo was born with 

speed

an’ I’m glad to be her 

breed.

Didoo was fast on 

snowshoes

‘cause she liked to cruise.

Like a rabbit Didoo can hop

an’ she didn’t know how to 

stop.

Margaret Blackfox was 

number one

‘cause she was born to 

run.

My great grandma 

Margaret Blackfox

was as swift as a black 

fox
