Russell, Standing Rock, believes in empowering our youth and knows that they can have a bright and positive future.
I believe Native youth can accomplish anything and I want them to know they have older generations that support them their endeavors. One thing that I am passionate about is keeping our traditions and our tribal way of life with us that live within the city and within the urban areas. And for all of us to know that we are not alone in the cities. One skill that I will bring to this position is writing; I believe with well written words that we can empower our community. And I believe being positive no matter the situation is key.
