Through Our Eyes: Narratives of Three Student Volunteers at Aaniiih Nakoda College
Patrick Wertz, Kerri
Tribal College Journal of American Indian Higher Education, v28 n1 Aug 2016
Many adults pursue college degrees with high hopes of attaining a job and financial stability. However, visualize being not only a full-time college student but also a parent, a rancher, and most importantly, an American Indian. Many students enrolled in higher education in the United States have the luxury of focusing their time on their studies, but not students at tribal colleges and universities (TCUs). Despite overwhelming familial responsibilities, work obligations, and academic demands, TCU students embrace the passion for serving their community as volunteers. Shay Snider, Jacob Doney, and Kaye Brown are honors students at Aaniiih Nakoda College (ANC) who serve in the student senate and in the Phi Theta Kappa honor society. While they face the common challenges of college, they also volunteer as a way to shape their characters and their future. These three tribal college students teach us that volunteer work coincides with individual passion and interest. A volunteer project exists for everyone. By seeking out such projects and opportunities, perhaps we can all move the world.
