|Introduction||I am an Artist, I choose to express myself through many mediums. Currently I play with tie-dye, photography, speaking and writing. I love to share my work with others. I teach the art of tie-dye through home parties and school events. With a little instruction, there is no failure at tie-dye. I feel this is a great message for the younger students. Recently I was contacted by WCPI to participate with their on going Tribal Youth Leadership training program (middle and high school level). Their goal is to provide students with leadership skills so they are able make positive changes in their lives and within their community. So far, I have traveled with them to work with students on a reservation in South Dakota and at a group home in Utah. I did a presentation on making choices and used tie-dye as a metaphor for life. I started out with very basic choices and demonstrated how making one choice opens up new paths. At the end I helped each student create their own tie-dye tee shirt. The presentation stretched my comfort level a bit. I have done many classes, but this was the first time since high school that I have given a speech.|
