Is it summer yet?

College student. Living in Boston, MA but from the beautiful shores of Lake Superior in Northern WI. I tend to post funny stuff, issues I'm passionate about, cool things I stumble upon, and some original posts. I'm also Ojibwe which explains all the Native stuff I post about or reblog.

Dalton Ghetti creates amazing pencil sculptures by hand, holding the pencil under a strong light source and carving with a sewing needle and a very sharp, triangular, small, metal blade.

His idea is to bring people’s attention to small things. Small is beautiful. Most of the pencils he uses are found on the streets and sidewalks. Dalton’s work is a recycling process. He turns discarded objects into art.

His pencil carvings are not for sale. He doesn’t do it for money. He sculpts pencils mostly for himself and his art comes from his heart. He wants to keep it that way.

As an Ojibwe person in an institution of higher learning, I sometimes get frustrated with my fellow students and faculty. As simple of a question as “what are you doing this summer?” can turn into a long discussion of my heritage and, often times, validating myself as a Native American person. It inevitably gets old. You might be thinking that I don’t have to have these teaching moments with people. Why do I still do it? 

One day in high school, not long after I had been accepted to college, when my mother and I had a conversation. 

"You know, honey, when you get to Harvard, there might be a lot of people who have never met an Indian before. You might be the only Native American they will ever meet in their life." Reflecting back on this moment, I remember having a picture of the typical Harvard man or woman, some person born and raised in New England — the few places in the country it seemed to me where you can get away with never seeing an Indian (I know that New England is absolutely chock full of Native Americans, both indigenous to New England and from around the country, but in my head back in the day I figured New England was just urban sprawl and no reservations).  

"So I want you to know, that you are going to have to be very patient with them and explain to them about Red Cliff and how you’re Ojibwe and Native Americans aren’t all just one big thing and we’re all different. But they’re probably going to associate us all together so you are going to have to explain that you can’t represent ALL the tribes." This remark I was less surprised at but equally good advice.

"And another thing! Some people aren’t going to wonder why you don’t ‘look’ Native American and why you have blonde hair and what not. You just have to be ready to be a teacher." 

While my mom gave me this speech in the car as we drove somewhere I no longer remember it was one of those moments where I just sort of forgot about shortly after it happened. But I re-remembered it the other evening in a discussion with a Latina friend of mine about how she gets frustrated with her Latino peers that attend Harvard, but are not always ideal role models. And I agreed with her. But we both mused on whether or not those who are minority must always be role models; minorities should be afforded the same luxury of being who they are no matter whether or not who they are is “role model material” or not. And I agree, ideally being a role model shouldn’t be forced on someone. But being a minority in an institution of higher learning is an opportunity that should be ceased. If you believe that minorities are under-recognized in institutional settings it seems natural that you, the minority, should present yourself as best you can and you should be ready to be a teacher at almost any moment. Patience with those who are uneducated can change the way they begin to interact with people in the future.  

The one thing that my mother got wrong in her speech is that I might be the only Native American that someone might come in contact with. That might have been true for my mother when she left Northern Wisconsin for New England for college, but it is no longer the case. Native Americans are spreading across the country. We’re creating blogs and film and music. We’re in the news, on the internet, and in your neighborhood. My mom might was just trying to prepare me to come face to face with people who have not had the privilege and honoring of personally knowing Native Americans. While I may be one of the first Native Americans someone meets, I certainly hope that my conversation prepares them for positive and beneficial interaction with other Natives they will inevitably have in the future. And that is why in my position of privilege and honor as a Harvard student that I am ready to be a role model for the Anishinaabe that come next and a teacher for those that will interact with future Native American generations.

Enjoy young dancers from Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa in Wisconsin as they show how traditional teachings can improve one’s sense of self and well-being through traditional dances. Dancers learn to care for themselves by learning to care for their regalia, hoops and drums. The troupe approaches their work in a holistic manner that impacts the quality of their dancing as well as the quality of their lives.

A few of my little cousins and other children from my reservation recently got to show off their hoop dancing skills in Washington DC.
