Final Project

So our final project was to focus on an issue or process. My dad was in and out of the hospital, which made it difficult to go out and find a project to focus on for a month in between work and school. A mixture of pneumonia and terminal lung cancer.

My dad, Melvin Stokes, was an old-time ndn. Raised by uncles along the Klamath River, later in his life he became an advocate for wellness and education. He had his 31st sobriety birthday earlier this month on April 1. Dad went to HSU and I’m the second generation to go to school. He was always encouraging people to go to college and get sober.

Finally on April 28, dad died while I was at work. So this is a result of that.
