I hope...that in the future people will look back and think I made a difference through recording our language and Native history.
I was born in Fort St John on February 6, 1991. I am fourteen years old and I am in grade nine at Dr. Kearney School. I live in Doig River. My household consists of my mother Barb, my step-dad Mark, and my older brother and sister Cash and Charmayne who are fraternal twins. Some of my goals in life are to continue to play volleyball and reach a higher level and to learn how to speak Beaver. Other goals in life are to finish high school and to graduate. I want to have a good career and one day I hope to get married and have kids. One of my goals this summer is to learn about my history through stories and songs from the elders, which we are doing in this project. I also hope to gain knowledge of the dreams and stories that the Dreamers have dreamt about. Through the interviews we've been getting from the elders I have learned how to work with the video camera, microphones, and lighting. I also learned about the proper way to get the best sound from a person when we are doing an interview -- it is called the inverse square law. I hope during this project I will make my mark in Doig River history and that in the future people will look back and think I made a difference through recording our language and Native history.
