Amanda Lott

I am enrolled in the Gros Ventre and Assiniboine Tribe of Ft. Belknap, Montana. I grew up in Great Falls and Helena, MT. I attend college at North Idaho College in Coeur D’alene, Idaho and became the president of the American Indian Student Alliance there on campus. We’ve held events with surrounding Native students, attended the 2015 National Indian Education Conference in Portland, OR and volunteered in our community. We also did a presentation at the University of Idaho about breaking down stereotypes of Indigenous people. It is my passion to share my culture and education with others through breaking down stereotypes of Native People and providing young Native’s with the tools they need to succeed. By being a WERNATIVE Ambassador I believe I will gain more experiences with other Native youth that share my values.

I had a vivid dream where I was told my native name. This young woman I’ve seen more than once, unsure if she is my ancestor or my spirit guide, announced or gave it to me. I’m proud of my name but am curious if it’s okay to use my native name publicly?
