I feel as though I'm a stakeholder in our language. Our language is on the verge of passing away. I am confident I can be a part of helping preserve the language and find creative ways to share within our communities. I'm very technically inclined and active on social media sites including Facebook, Instragram, SnapChat, Twitch and Twitter. All social media sites have an age demographic and I feel having knowledge of multiple platforms will be beneficial in the sharing of preserving our language.
I'm also a story teller. I use video to share moments in people's lives, tell history and preserve knowledge. Growing up in our native communities, I feel as though I can balance the media strategies along with showing respect and honor to our elders and language speakers.
