And our last bit of wonderful news is that have a new member of the Red Feather team, Ellary Kramka. Here’s a little bit about her in her own words….
Through Americorps VISTA, I will be serving with Red Feather for the next year in the Bozeman office, and I could not be more excited about the opportunity. After a life changing trip to rural West Virginia in high school, I knew that I wanted to spend my days fighting the good fight against poverty. I felt responsible for what I had seen. As I was applying for jobs during my senior year of college, Red Feather stood out to me from other organizations I was looking at. I love that Red Feather is not just about alleviating dire circumstances—Red Feather is also driven by a desire to empower the people it serves. I consider it a privilege to work for a nonprofit that partners with its community members, listening to and responding to their needs. I also love that I get to be working with an organization that focuses on improving living conditions for Native Americans, specifically. The chance to honor the Native American culture and learn from it is one of the many reasons I am filled with excitement for this coming year.
