District Welcomes American Indian Cultural Liaison, Nell Barri
We are excited to introduce the new American Indian Cultural Liaison for School District 197, Nell Barri! Nell started with us earlier this month and wrote a note to share below. Please help us welcome Nell!Boozhoo gakina awiiya! Hello everyone! I’m Nell Barri, the new American Indian Cultural Liaison for School District 197. I’m a member of the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe in Northern Wisconsin. I love reading, attending pow-wows and community gatherings, and spending time by the water, especially Gichi Gumi (Lake Superior). I have a B.S. in Public Health from the University of Wisconsin-Superior. I’m excited for my role here at School District 197; I look forward to supporting the Indigenous students and families and ensuring there is Indigenous representation throughout the district. Miigwech, thank you.
