I got to learn how to learn how to photoshop some stuff into a picture. i think i could make more pictures and just have fun with it. also make more about native americans. i like the way mine came out. what the picture means to me is that i am connected to the water and eagles are a big part of my culture and a part of my tribe. My experience being here was fun and I will take what I learned and share it with my community. Also the mentors where awesome this year. They helped us with anything we needed and also made sure that we where focused and on task.
