I am Near the Water clan, born for the Folded Arm people, my maternal grandfather is the Salt clan, and my paternal grandfather is the Red House clan. I hail from the great Navajo Nation of Rock Point, Arizona. With that, this completes me as a Navajo Woman.
I graduated from Weber State University in April 2019 with my Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education with a minor/endorsement in English as a Second Language (ESL). The past three years at WSU, I have served as the President, Vice President, and Cultural Specialist for the American Indian Council (AIC) student organization and served as the American Indian Student Senator in WSUSA Student Government. In the Spring of 2019, I served as the Head Lady for WSU Indigenous Voices Powwow. In addition to this, I was the founder of “Indigenous Voices Hour” radio show with WSU radio KWCR.
