Clara Elizabeth Ecomac To is currently in the 8th grade, with the goal of being different than other young women around her. She hopes that the skills and values from school and family will help her achieve this dream goal. The main craft in the town she lives in is making baskets and her 4 other siblings make baskets to support the family. Her hard working mother stays home to gather wood and prepare meals for the family. Clara’s father makes bread in another town, and then travels home on the weekends to be with his family. The help of the Kateri Fund allows her to get an education so she can have a better future and get a good education. She is extremely devoted to getting good grades and bringing happiness to life.
