From Heather MacLean

Congratulations, Sabena. I am proud of you for everything you have accomplished, including being accepted into your dream PhD program; and for the many accolades you have received these past few months. You are a driven but kind person and you inspire me.

All my love,

From Sebastian Wurzrainer

Congratulations, Sabena! I'm so incredibly proud of you and everything you have accomplished. Reading your honors thesis recently was a wonderful chance to reflect on all that you have achieved as well as all the things I'm sure you will achieve as you now transition to graduate school. Through your fierce intellect, dry wit, and immense compassion, you have taught me to be a better person. And I'm excited to watch as you begin to teach so many more people (both students and fellow scholars) about your culture, indigenous theory, and your own unique perspective. Being a part of your journey at Dartmouth has been my great privilege, and I'm also looking forward to being part of its next phase.   
With love, 

From Loni & Ray Sherman

From Rob Allen and Robin Sherman

Congratulations on this milestone in your so far amazing life!  We are in awe of your hard work, high standards and intellectual prowess.  It has been amazing to witness your journey, from telling Raven stories to employing indigenous storywork in a brilliant critique of post-colonial capitalism. We could not be more proud of you, beautiful daughter.  We know that you will make important contributions to scholarship and your community, and continue the family tradition of strong Native women. We look forward to listening to your stories and learning from you.

Love always,
Dad and Robin
