  • As an indigenous woman,

  • I grew up with stories.

  • Stories explain the world.

  • And science explains the world.

  • And often times people are like, "Well,

  • there's a huge split between tradition

  • and science." And it's like, Actually, no.

  • A lot of tradition is just explaining science

  • in a way that communicates to the masses.

  • Between Worlds

  • Between Worlds Episode 7

  • A lot of us who grow up in different communities

  • that aren't part of the majority,

  • we live in two worlds.

  • You can often feel sort of isolated.

  • I'm Stockbridge Mohican Munsee.

  • When I was in high school,

  • our mascot was the Redskins.

  • They had this big porcelain

  • native that they would bring out.

  • This girl came up to me one day, and she's like,

  • "I'm so sorry they're doing this to you."

  • And I was like, "What?"

  • That's when it clicks. Like--

  • "Oh, people see that and they think of me?"

  • My culture is rich and it's complex,

  • but it's definitely not a cartoon.

  • I felt like an outsider.

  • And I ran away.

  • Here I was, like, hopping buses,

  • and living on my own,

  • and feeling sort of lost.

  • I needed an outlet to express myself.

  • So I started a blog.

  • I would write these ramble-y rants

  • about indigenous issues

  • and people started giving me advice,

  • all of it unsolicited, but all of it

  • exciting, 'cause it means somebody's hearing me.

  • I remember one of the comments was like,

  • if you're serious about changing this,

  • you would go to school.

  • I think a lot of seeds sort of fall,

  • but that was the seed that was sort of planted,

  • and it was kind of like, "Yeah, I do want to go to school.

  • But I don't really know how."

  • [laughter]

  • I didn't know anyone in my direct family

  • that went to college,

  • so it was like, "Who do I talk to? Who do I ask?"

  • how do i go to college

  • And I think that's where I realized, like,

  • "Okay, it's not just about how to go to college,

  • it's about what college,

  • how to pay for college--

  • there's a lot of acronyms, and this alphabet soup

  • that I didn't understand.

  • But I made it my mission to understand all of this.

  • And then I made out a plan.

  • Instead of a mainstream school,

  • I knew I wanted to go to a tribal college.

  • These schools are so important,

  • because it's our own community teaching us,

  • and setting the measures for success.

  • That first day of class,

  • in walks our professor, who is a doctor.

  • It sort of blew my mind, 'cause I'd never met

  • somebody who was a doctor, who's Native American.

  • So I was finally around other students

  • who were similar to me in a larger sense.

  • No one here has ever asked me

  • why I don't look like Pocahontas,

  • or if I live in a teepee.

  • However you are, that's Native.

  • It really helped me develop my confidence,

  • and that's such an important part of pursuing things.

  • And so I went from, like, how to go to college

  • and how to pay for college,

  • to what comes next in college.

  • science internships in D.C.

  • Everyone has internships.

  • And so it's like, "Well,

  • how do I get an internship?

  • Like, where are internships offered?"

  • I got an internship in D.C.

  • at the American Association for the Advancement of Science,

  • which is one of the oldest science organizations in America.

  • I love science, and I love tech,

  • but right now the indigenous voice

  • is largely missing from these industries.

  • That's a cyclic problem. There's not a lot of Natives

  • because the opportunity isn't there.

  • Let's create the opportunity,

  • so we can get more Natives in tech.

  • If you asked me years ago

  • if I would ever be invited to the White House,

  • legally invited to the White House,

  • [laughter] or flown to New Zealand for research,

  • or organized American Indian hackathons,

  • I wouldn't fathom those things.

  • I would dream about those things,

  • but I wouldn't actually see how

  • to go from A to B.

  • - Robin is trying to open a whole new world

  • to her peers.

  • They see through her example

  • that they too have that potential.

  • There's nothing wrong with not knowing something.

  • There's no opportunity that you're not allowed

  • to at least try for.

  • There's often this idea that in order

  • to get opportunities, we have to leave the res.

  • But I feel like we need to start looking at

  • creating these opportunities on the reservation.

  • You can be a researcher. You can be a computer programmer.

  • You can do this AND you can bring your culture with you.

  • [Native singing]

  • We're the generation that was able to go to tribal college,

  • because of the work that the people before us did.

  • I'm gonna be part of that generation

  • that gets a Ph.D. and spreads this further.

  • That's how you bring a community up.

  • [Native singing]

  • To all those using technology to create opportunity for all

  • Search on.
