MY story for this podcast:My relative once told me that you hold a voice as a youth, but after 18 they seem to forget about you. You have to find your own way in life, make friends and family. Find a voice that no one can take from you. A lot of times it's weird how you find your voice in this life, I can not fathom the idea that I found mine through TikTok. I guess my goal of this podcast is building a future foundation for youth who no one ever talks about. We always talk about the 7th generation, but what if we missed it? The leaders we talk about are just overlooked. When is it coming? So this is the question for my indigenous people, INDIGENOUS MINDS ONLY.For my relatives of other nations, I want you to take my words from me, hear me out as I use my voice. Hear me from not just the voice I speak, listen with your heart and mind. I try my best to speak from a pure heart, but understand that there is a scar that cannot be healed. There is a scar that never faded away, but we became faded away in society. We as indigenous leaders and speakers will always remain the 1% of the world, The United States, and in this life. So maybe I am a walking artifact that “White” experts are always talking about.
