I am so grateful to my community for the opportunities I have been given to pursue my educational goals. I have always been passionate about my community and finding ways to better my nation and this program allowed me to honour our ancestors by using our Tsááʔ çhé ne dane perspectives and worldviews as a foundation to practice.
I look forward to continuing to support and advocate for decolonizing approaches in society and prioritizing our Tsááʔ çhé ne dane cultural values as a pathway to educating and helping others understand this important way of life.
I am incredibly thankful for this gift and I strongly encourage all our members and other Indigenous people to pursue their education and reach their goals!
