Day 10: Van rides to the mountain on rainy days.

Day 9: Students have started their second week as interns at the monument. In between classes and dorm life, students get the opportunity to get work experience and some change in their pockets for school in the Fall.

Happy #FathersDay to my até and brother. @aghostineveryroom @kennlittle1024

I’ve been waiting for @mredshirtshaw to ask but those Lakota’s hold out pretty good. So at an elevation 7,242 on Black Elk Peak, I finally asked. And luckily she said yes or that would have been an awkward 3.5 mile hike down.

Day 7: Our first week’s U Rock Award winners!

Day 6: Students attended the screening of the documentary 100 Years last night, which featured Elouise Cobell. Afterwards the filmmaker Melinda Janko did a Q and A and then spoke with students one on one!

Day 3: Tonight former Indian University of North American student (2014) Tyler Seidel spoke with students about his experiences. I first met Tyler when he went through the upper level program in 2015. He just graduated from the University of South Dakota with a BS in Biology-Conservation and Biodiversity and a minor in Native American Studies. He’s heading to the University of Minnesota in the Fall to start the PhD program in Ecology, Evolution and Behavior! I’m super proud of his accomplishments. It’s been amazing to watch his journey and can’t wait to see where he goes!

Day 1: Yesterday was the 9th opening ceremony of the Indian University of North America, a summer program for students who have graduated college and will be entering college in the Fall. I’m fortunate to be directing it this summer. We have 32 freshman and 6 upper level students here, almost all entirely Native! I’ll be in the Black Hills if anyone is around for Saturday hikes!

Happy birthday to my partner in crime @mredshirtshaw! You’re passion for making the world a better place always inspires me. And you remember you can never wear too many bows or lace.

Headed home from #NCORE2018 yesterday. As always, it was a rejuvenating and amazing experience! Thankful for my #NDNCORE fam who is pictured here with @denise.juneau after her keynote!

Finished up the second day of our art and resistance workshop yesterday at NCORE. The participants made their own projects that included collage, paint, and drawing to demonstrate resilience! The pictures will be hung in one of the hallways at the NCORE hotel!
