Wednesday - Most of my family history is lost because my great-grandmother was ashamed. Before I was born, my dad went to the Bureau of Indian Affairs and discovered our heritage. It made sense—my great-grandmother from Baraga looked native. Growing up in a small, white, farm town, there wasn’t much culture. But my dad was a vendor on the pow wow trail, so that’s where I picked a lot up. I want to keep that culture going. Our language. Our food. Our music. Dance. It’s everything we have, and it’s slowly dying off. I serve as treasurer of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society. We're working with faculty to restore our culture on campus. And we work with big automotive companies who have cultural networks right in their firms—last weekend we visited Chrysler. You can blend in being a native, but you’re culturally very different. #michigantech #mtuhumans #nativeamericanheritage #campus #commUNITY @bureauofindianeducation @chryslerautos
