Greetings relatives, I’m a Colorado raised Oglala Lakota/Ft.Peck Dakota. I was brought up with traditional values which I am passing to my 3 children. I started sundancing at age 12 and am a skilled custom order beader and seamstress. I currently attend Red Rocks Community College where I belong to the Sigma Alpha Pi Honor Society and receive my Business Foundations Certificate in December 2017. After completing requirements for my AA Business degree I plan on attending Metropolitan State College to finish my BA in Entrepreneurship. I hope to be an asset to the community by combining traditional values and skills with business and leadership, while promoting balance in all aspects of life. Thank you for this opportunity, Lila Was’te Wopila Tanka!
