Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan
I’ve always had an interest in art growing up, and now that I’m graduated from high school, I have the luckiest opportunity to bring my skills to a college setting. I hope one day to reach my voice out to not only the indigenous community but to the art community as well.
In my piece, I wanted to focus on the youth’s voice, and appreciating those before us in helping the next generation’s voice be heard. I strongly believe that being able to have a sense of belonging, whether it be a small group or a large community, your voice should and must be heard. Whether it’s a small thought or important opinion, it should count towards the discussion and be considered in any situation.
