Salena , (Lummi Nation) , believes in being ambitious.
“One thing I am passionate about is clean homelands. I have been part of the Lummi youth canoe family for about 6 years, and I have gotten the chance to travel the world to make a change and share a little about our culture as a Lummi youth. I have also been a canoe puller with Autumn Rose canoe club for almost 10 years. I grew up on the waters and if I wasn’t on a canoe, I was on a boat with my parents while they were fishing. My connection with the water is very deep. I have always wanted to help make a change for my people and the people around me. Keeping care of the earth for the generations after me is one of my passions.I just want the best for the future generations and I feel as though I would be a great asset to the We R Native Team.”
