The things that can push away and make it hard for Indigenous youth to go to college are poverty, themselves, bad decisions, friends, and the culture itself.
Well, I started off the day with a good game of basketball for our daily exercise. Joe The Amazing made us an absolutely amazing breakfast (lives up to his name). It consisted of bacon, eggs, sausage, toast, bagels, and warmed up some tortillas. ‘Twas an excellent breakfast. In our acting class with Rose the Courageous (she has a bird named Courage) made us do an activity that really showed who each of us were. She had each of us decide which animal we were of the ones on each side of the class room. The animals were a rabbit, a hawk, a turtle, and a tiger. In our English class we focused on making adjectives even more descriptive by describing them with words from the five senses. We researched into colleges and saw which ones we might want to apply to. We researched and talked about our tribe’s hereditary illnesses. Last but not least, our elders talked to us about a very important subject. Indigenous youth selling their bodies for school, survival, and kids. It was a very important message. Thank you everyone for an amazing da.
