I am honoured to have been accepted into the PhD Program under the guidance of my current advisor for my Masters, and the Department of Secondary Education at the University of Alberta, who have been extremely supportive throughout this process. School has been my life and I have learned from some of the best teachers, mentors, professors, and advisors throughout my time inside the classroom. After much thought and debate, I have decided to opt out and not pursue my PhD Program at this time. Instead, I wish to apply my knowledge to the indigenous community. I want to grow outside of the classroom and learn my role as an indigenous male, son, brother, and friend. Thank you to everyone that has supported me along this journey. Much love.
Now it's time to give back. -Hiy Hiy
In the past couple weeks, @gisellewanders and I have been mapping and measuring some spectacular kaleidoscope ridgelines that very few people get the chance to see. In fact, the rocks in this remote backcountry zone had previously never been studied! Our trip to Red and White Basin was strenuous, exhausting, but overall enlightening. I am thankful each and every day I am able to gaze upon such astounding geologic features with good company and laughter echoing the hills.
