# LummiNation

Well I just got done eating dinner and I looked I was like “Time for blogging!” my auntie looked at me weird wondering what’s wrong with me :D. It feels so good to be home but I miss everyone already. Today I got to sleep in and it felt good, it felt like forever since I’ve got to sleep in, I’ve been thinking they tell us were the leaders of the future, my sister and I she is also 16 we are talking about wanting to start a We R Native group out here in Lummi, we don’t seem to do anything like that around here, their are kids who do just not around here. We wanted to start it and talk about drugs and alcohol, domestic violence, and learning more about our culture, because there are some kids out here who don’t know about or very much about our culture so there are 3 of us, me, my sister, and older cousin. So 3 of us are kind of going to start it post our videos and if kids are interested they can join. This is still just an idea and were hoping it’s going to work. DSC00396

For the cause to get more Native kids to attend college, I’d like to talk to my friends about our book we have created together.  There are many aspects that are obtained within the book that gives better perspective to young Native youth.  I’d share it with family also so they can be encouraged to attend college.


1) My story, the commitment I would make to distribute my book as a website or posted on facebook. I would also talk to the LIBC to see if I would be able to hand out my experience to everyone that walks in. 

2)  I would share my story with, my father and all the people he cares about. I would like to share my story with the Lummi Youth Academy to give a bit more information about myself to them. Maybe I would share my story my last year in high school to my teachers and first year of college.

The last full day!

Im excited to go home, even though I wasn’t able to get as connected with the mentors and peers as much as I wanted to. Im sad that there is people I will not be  able to see next year but I’m happy to participate with everyone in the activities this year. This year didn’t feel as crowded as last year and we didn’t really get to go by the schedule which I thought was great.

Trisha’s Question:

Who will come back next year?

Home many pairs of shoes do you have?


To distribute a Native Youth Survival Guide to preparing for college, I would talk to other kids that look up to me or have yet to look up to me and recommend the book to them. I would also distribute it to educational helpers in my community and teachers at the Lummi Nation School. Online I would share it and post it on my wall tagging others in my community to read or skim through it.

I would share it online and in my school , I would recommend it to close friends and other Native American youth in my tribe.

Today at the Workshop at Chaffey Historical Center and Church, I learned a lot about Native American projects and we got Brownies which were so perfect!
