Calico Ducheneaux

Hume Honors Fellow

Calico Ducheneaux is Lakota, from the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe in South Dakota. She grew up riding horses across the prairie, chasing her many cousins, and playing music late into the night with her extended family. The solid foundation fostered by her family and community made Calico feel ready to do something completely new and different—to attend Stanford University hundreds of miles from home. Now in her senior year, Calico studies linguistics and focuses on Native American English with hopes of doing more work on Indigenous languages.
