Georgene Tenorio

Ambassador

Georgene Tenorio

Georgene, Klamath (OR), believes that all native youth can accomplish great things. As a We R Native Youth Ambassador, Georgene will provide support and shared passion to other native youth trying to make a difference in their communities, because it takes one person to have an idea, but a community to make a change. Georgene has served as a section leader in her high school choir, making sure that the girls in her section knew their parts, had their music, and sang out. To do this, she had to listen to and encourage communication between her section and herself. Georgene also volunteers at the Humane Society and her local hospital. She has been dancing at powwows for 5 years and likes to see the different tribes and cultures that powwowing has exposed her to. Watch out for Georgene over the next year as she makes a difference for native youth.

Hi! I have a friend who has learned beadwork from an elder in our community. She has started selling her own work, and while it’s not all indigenous designs and symbols, she’s making a profit off of it all. She’s 100% white. Should I call her out?
