A member of the Colville Confederated Tribes, Noyes grew up in the town of Omak, Washington. With her fellowship she hopes to make personal discoveries in understanding indigenous solidarity by experiencing the everyday lives of people in the places she is inspired to visit. Emma excitedly admits she will most likely create at hundreds of potential itineraries before her departure. Her passion lies in furthering community based participatory research with indigenous groups/tribes and rejuvenating the physical, emotional and spiritual support for Native peoples from within their own communities.
