Iesha-LaShay, Muscogee (Creek) Nation, is currently a We R Native Ambassador and the program has taught her to not only connect with other Native youth, but it has guided her to be more involved in my community.

I love being a We R Native Ambassador because I love being a positive role model and I want to continue to make a change in our communities. I am passionate about teaching native youth to be prideful of themselves and their culture. I am very active in my community. This year, I am the 2017-2018 Jr. Miss Muscogee (Creek) Nation. I am a member of my tribe’s youth council and my school districts Native American Student of the year. Being this active in my community allows me to be able to reach out to more Native youth to spread my message of cultural pride.

Hey! I’m someone who plays a lot of Dungeons & Dragons, and as a result, I tend to write a lot of fantasy worldbuilding. I’m writing a group of people who revere nature (called druids in-game) and have really powerful magic that allows them to befriend the wilderness, shapeshift into animals, etc. They live in nomadic hunter-gatherer groups, which I would describe as “tribes,” because it’s much faster than “small, tight-knit nomadic hunter-gatherer groups.” Is this usage of the word “tribe” offensive?
