I am here at this program for this opportunity to experience being around other natives and learn from them. learned very much like how make clapper sticks that was very amazing because i am yokut and in my culture and we use them a lot I use them in many song that i sing but i have never made one.I am exited to lean not only about my culture but others as well.one of the many things I nervous about is failing in activity because I want to do the best i can so that I can look and be proud. Today we talked about who was a important person in our lives and i said my cousin he is the person who inspires me and gives me the confidence that i have today. i hope to be able to share what I have learn in this program with him. Lastly i am very happy with the people around me I think that they are pretty cool and am excited to spend 2 weeks with them.
