University of Colorado Denver - 2017
I am interested in exploring indigenous rights and access to health care within Colorado. My first Alternative Break trip was to the Omaha Reservation in 2013. I found myself passionate about this community and angry about the lack of resources and treatment they received. This is what actually led me to declare a second major and add Ethnic Studies to my school curriculum. Ever since then, I have had a passion about indigenous rights and health because there was a direct correlation between the two on the Omaha Reservation.
