Dakotah is an enrolled citizen of the Navajo Nation. She brings over a decade of experience in Indigenous community wellness planning. She grew up in the Navajo Nation and currently lives and works on the traditional homelands of the Tiwa people otherwise known as Albuquerque, NM. She is honored to have the opportunity to learn and contribute to the Talking Talons Youth Leadership organization’s ongoing growth and continued success. She believes that climate change impacts the wellbeing of all living things therefore when the planet is not balanced, the people are not balanced. Her advice is that we must continue to support and nurture the younger generations so they can continue to steward the lands in a balanced sustainable way, and we must be open to learning from them on how to create a world that is more just and equitable for all people and the planet.
