To be accepted as an Ambassador in Google Women Techmakers is fantastic but... it's even more incredible than the surface achievement.
To my knowledge based on my research, I am the FIRST Native American Woman to be accepted as an Ambassador for Google Women Techmakers! I am beyond grateful to represent for our future and all Native children who love STEM!!
When I first began sharing and teaching my Native language of Lakota online in 1994/1995, I wanted to be a role model to my younger tiospaye (extended relatives) - to connect with them through culture and technology. And... today, this feels epic.
Beyond volunteering mentorship and tech leadership, take a look at the diversity reports for Google employment regarding ethnicity for the last 3 years and the less than 1% representing Native American and Indigenous engineers and staff.
