Already missing the students

Today I woke up thinking I was at Wishtoyo Village, but I was at home in my room. Last night, after the gradation ceremony, the drive back to Pitzer was really interesting and weird because of all the unexpected delays that happened lol. On the way home, I was thinking a lot about the Pipeline students running around, laughing, and singing. I feel like I did not really get a chance to properly say goodbye. I’ve never gotten so many hugs before. It really brought a lot of great energy.  Thank you Pipeline students for your positive vibes and teachings. I’m using my tablet to post this blog…thank you Chumash Elder Adelna. To all, continue the ceremony and prayers, and don’t forget about what you learned at Pitzer, Western U, Wishtoyo, and Limuw…the teachings, history, education, and Consciousness…  Share what you learned! Because the teachings belong to the people.

Surfing and dancing and Science

It was nice that we were able experience and participate in the dance, the trip to western university was also amazing, I learned much about the research that graduate students do, along with the requirements that it takes to become a doctor. How important it is to do good in school to be able to accomplish these things. Also I never realized how cool Myan math is and how complex it is. I wonder what my math teacher would think if I used that on a no calculator test??  We also watched a movie that explained how important surfing was to the Hawaiian people, which is nice to know that their traditions are very important to them.
