A Heartbeat from Home
Cecilia Sanchez has always had a sense of longing, so she began searching. "I always knew I was Native, but it's hard when you don't have that [connection] growing up." Since Sanchez's father was separated from his family, like other Native children before the 1978 Indian Child Welfare Act, it was difficult for her to connect with her Apache heritage. Despite this challenge, Sanchez has found a way to take matters into her own hands, reconnecting with her Native identity and culture at IU. Read more about how Sanchez is making her mark and serving a purpose on campus and for her community.
