Can’t believe it’s been one year since graduation… I have a Bachelors Degree in Performing Arts and Social Justice emphasizing in Music ! From the University of San Francisco – with honors . I definitely put my degree to use this past year; a year full of a lot of rest but also adventure and building community across the nation !! I spend a lot of time unpacking what role western academia actually plays in my life moving forward… Since graduating, I have experienced an intense amount of anxiety and depression trying to figure out where I’m most useful now ! There are many justifiable perspectives about Natives in Higher Education… a system not made for us .. a system that we do not “need” in order to be validated by our own traditional nations AND a system that does pose as a tool to learn how to code switch and communicate with our oppressors , our allies/accomplices , and all those who misunderstand us . Ultimately.. information is information and we choose what we do wit it ✨ I chose to take this information that I gained from an elite institution and somehow apply it to my daily pursuit of liberation…. I must remember that I’m a student every day of this life , in every space , learning from a spectrum of human beings ! With that being said… what I do know about me after being a scholar in an academy that is not natural to my dna…. is that my determination is unbreakable and my capacity to evolve is limitless✨ Thank you to everyone who did this wit me, this degree is ours – not just mine !
