Outstanding Graduating Senior
Congratulations to NMU graduate, Grey Shea. Grey has been recognized by the Native American Studies faculty as the first-ever Outstanding Graduating Senior in Native American Studies. Grey will be honored at the upcoming 2019 Academic Affairs Honors Banquet on Monday, April 22 at 7 p.m.
Here is a short bio about them.
Meskwa Gekek Kwe n'dizhinikaaz. Migizi n'doodem. Baaweting n'doonjibaa. My name is Grey Shea. I am from Baaweting (Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan) and am a member of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians from the Eagle Clan. I am a soon-to-graduate Native American Studies major at Northern Michigan University, with a special interest in learning Anishinaabemowin (the Anishinaabe language). I have served as the vice president of the Native American Student Association for a year and a half, and have worked at the Center for Native American Studies for two years. My biggest passion in life is Anishinaabe mino-bimaadiziwin (living a good life) and I plan to work on furthering Anishinaabe language and culture revitalization.
The CNAS faculty team wishes the very best for all of the graduating seniors.
