  1. Aho! Mitakuye Oyasin.

    I do not know your Nation, but I believe this is an absolute truth: All Our Relations.

    I am proud of you.

    I finally finished my math degree in my early 50’s–I have a learning disability. I taught high school math for 16 years.

    You rock!

  2. One of the greatest travesties in American history is what happened to the native Americans. If anyone demands reparations. It’s them.
    It’s still going on they are still treated like shit.

  3. Congratulations! Graduating from college is a big deal and from Stanford at that! In addition, you had to work hard to get there in the first place. I hope that others in your tribe will be able to follow your example. Best wishes for a happy life!

  4. As great as it is that she graduated it just tears your heart that when it comes to the Native Americans, they been screwed time and time again. They just were taken off their lands, thrown to the most rural and desolate place out there, called it a reservation and left them there to fend for themselves. The amount of poverty, unemployment, and depression is just off the charts in these reservations.

  5. Genuinely asking what does tribe here mean? In my mind tribes are still hunting with spears for food but her family manages to have an income. Sorry for my ignorance

  6. Great job! Maintain that current drive & motion in all aspects of your life. You have made many people proud.

    Congratulations and best of luck on your future endeavors!
