She grew up learning Objibwe values and traditions from her maternal grandparents, such as the responsibility of native people to protect the earth and all its creatures. Currently, Diana lives in San Pedro, California and will graduate from Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles in May 2007 with her Juris Doctor degree.
