Tac' Halaxp nuunim hiimuyuume ka lawtiwaama, iinim weenikt wees Elsie Cree. Good afternoon family and friends my name is Elsie Anne Cree, I am an enrolled member of the Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation. My bands are Tiadnapum and Wanapum. I also carry a strong bloodline through the NiMiiPuu people coming from the LookingGlass band. I am a third-year transfer student studying Elementary Education with a minor in Women's Studies. I am the president of the Native American Women's Association. I am also involved in the Student Washington Education Assoication, and Wazzu Singers. This will be my second year as a student ambassador and I absolutely love this job. I chose WSU because it was very close to home and family, as well as offering great resources and scholarships. 

Three Fun Facts About Me:

  • I'm Jameson and Kennedy's mom. 
  • My favorite place to eat in Pullman is Tin Tan Tacos! TRY IT!
  • I love CrossFit but have the upper arm strength of a kitten.
