Patricia Christensen

Patricia , (Salish Qlispe), believes in community involvement .

“One thing I am passionate about is Native culture. I’ve been drug and alcohol free all 16 years of my life. I sing. I teach Salish to elementary kids once a week. I have 6 siblings. I care about influencing Native youth to live healthy lifestyles and keep in touch with their culture. Our culture is dying out and it’s the youth’s job to learn it, then teach it that’s the only way it will survive. That’s why I want to be an ambassador, so I can help keep our people strong.”

Am I ‘allowed’ to follow beading tutorials on YouTube if I want to learn? I am too shy to talk to people on the Reserve. My grandmother is ‘half’ which makes me barely Native, so I struggle with identity as it is.
