Tashoni, Tachi Yokut/ Te-Moak Band of Western Shoshone, loves what We R Native promotes and represents!
I didn’t know how to be apart of it until this last Unity in OKC. I became a We R Native\ Ambassador because I want to introduce We R Native to my tribe. No one knows about it, only those who have been to Unity. I live a drug and alcohol free lifestyle and being a We R Native Ambassador is a perfect opportunity to promote living a healthy lifestyle and a perfect way to get the youth excited and involved! One thing I am passionate about sharing in my community is “Respect.” Respect for ourselves and others. Being drug and alcohol free falls under respect, because we are respecting our bodies by not poisoning it. A large number of our people are consumed by drugs and alcohol and it’s sad. If I can promote the importance of being drug and alcohol free in a unique approach I truly feel that more Youth will see the importance of being drug and alcohol free. My strongest skills that I will bring to this position is my ability to network, my positivity, and my willingness to want to learn more while helping others.
