Indigenous Forum – Sustainable Practices with Native Professionals

Join our panel of engineers, artists, and land stewards who will discuss their professional journeys and share their personalized tips and strategies to help guide you in your academic, professional, and personal endeavors. This panel invites the community to listen and learn from Native professionals at different stages in their career path, within STEAM fields. These professionals will reflect on questions like What is burnout? How can I land an internship? What sustains you? What does sustainability look like for Native-led spaces? This conversation will be geared towards youth attendees, who are invited to participate in resource sharing and ask questions. Moderated by Nazshonnii Brown-Almaweri.  Featuring brooke smiley and Ras K’Dee.
