JoRee’s dream is to use traditional storytelling to promote cultural preservation.

She will organize a storytelling series with Crow elders and schools, and local youth will help create a children’s book to preserve the stories.

The storytelling series will orally preserve traditional stories, and it will also connect elders and youth. Then, a children's book will be created with the help of high school students, who will learn graphic design and creative writing in the process

"In a fast moving world, it is imperative that we actively create spaces where this type of traditional knowledge and storytelling can be shared and we purposely carve out time for our oldest and youngest generations to connect." -JoRee
