Youth Culture Intern Mary
Mary Pangowish, from Wikwemikong Unceded Territory on Manitoulin Island, has been inquisitive and curious since she was young. Her desire for extensive knowledge about the world around us has led to her love of STEM. Over the past few years, Mary’s ambition has allowed her to take the lead role in her high school’s robotics team, gaining her proficiency in technical skills, outreach, and public speaking. One of her favourite observations is how the values of traditional Anishnaabek teachings work in tandem with the goals of STEM organizations. Mary hopes to continue into STEM in her post-secondary education and will continue her passion for sharing Anishnaabek cultural practices, and creating Indigenous appreciation with others.
