day three ny2c Zion

Third day of the ny2c program and i’m having a great time. Mayan math is always very interesting finding connection with the maya culture and mine the relations between calendars and our mathematics. I had a great time in the game design class my group invented a hybrid of tennis, the mayan ball game, and soccer. It wasn’t very easy  but we still had a good time. we also watched spirit games great movie glad to see it for a second time its a beautiful piece thank you so much.

zions day two ny2c

Had a great time with Hector Pacheco playing  the flower game. We built a lot of the chemistry as a group today with the game. I also got chance to shoot on a camera for a bit with Gena I was very excited. The discussion with Dr. Adrian Pantoja, it was very relatable and interactive it sparked a great conversation love to take that class again. Yesterday was beautiful the naming ceremony was beautiful never experienced  anything like it. I am very thank full.

Joshua hathaway spoke very strongly about decolonize and i appreciate that so much he had no chill but it was a good no chill he did because he cared about us. we also had a class with Katharine Walken talked about the power of writing and hoe detail is the best way to write

day 10 zion

today we went to western university its a fairly sized university very humbly placed it was only two roles of buildings it reminded me of the community it cowboy movies. we learned how native medical students cope with there spiritual and medical lives. in most native american community its not ok or not preferred to do surgery. so it kind of go agents there tribal beliefs but they go through special ceremony so they can stay safe. we came back to Pitzer and went to aztec math class it was very productive he clarified many doubts about dividing equations and place vale. about an hour after that class we attended a very intreating class called Vertigo in the Diaspora. from my understanding the class was very well based around civil rights activism in a collage setting/community. i found i very interesting the topic on injustices on a collage campus and any talk on civil rights and activism
