Shekoli (hey)! My Oneida identify is Yakohahi, my English identify is Olivia, and I’m a proud member of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin, one of many six tribal nations that make up the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy. In Indigenous communities, we frequently introduce ourselves on this method, in each English and our conventional tribal languages, to share our connection to individuals or locations. It’s a option to honor, have fun, and translate our cultures into our every day lives. As a Googler, I’ve been lucky to search out one other group so as to add to my introduction, as a member of the Google American Indian Network, GAIN.
This Native American Heritage Month, I’m excited to share a few of our efforts to deliver numerous views to our merchandise, in order that expertise can serve our Native communities.
This month, we labored with the Indian Community School of Milwaukee to indicate how simple it’s to begin a pc science program, take studying past the partitions of the classroom utilizing Expeditions, and share some on-line security ideas with college students.
