Samantha Tappo, Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, is the definition of learning from experience. She uses this as fuel to drive her in the direction she is going. She is very involved in her culture and don’t be surprised if you see her on the powwow trail. Fancy dancer by trade, she can also rip it up at the skate park. Her involvement with her culture helps other Native youth to be involved with theirs as well. As part of the WEB leadership group, she showed younger kids at her school how to be involved with different activities and showed them how to adapt to their new surroundings. We R Native is happy to welcome Samantha to the team.
