I really enjoy encouraging others to pursue their dreams and ambitions! I really believe in fighting for what you believe in, no one can tell you that you can’t do something! Keep pushing and going till you achieve what you’ve set your mind to! Over the last Couple of years I have had people tell me, I couldn’t go back to school, but I kept fighting and wanting to prove them wrong and January 5, 2017, I will be attending my first semester at Salish-Kootenai College! I have my mind set on becoming the first chair woman of my tribe! Because everything that goes on in my tribe isn’t always good so I’d like to go back to my Home Rez and make a difference and become our first chairwoman.

-Saydele Haynes (Colville), age 20, is from Cusick, Washington and is passionate about striving for greatness.

I’m a white mom with an 18 year old son whose father is choctaw. My son was not raised by his father and hardly knows him. He feels sad and wants to connect with other indigenous kids but doesn’t feel that he has the right. How can I help him?
