Swiftwater overcomes reservation statistics


Grit, humility and heart are values Cera Swiftwater spoke of in her student address during fall graduation’s December commencement ceremony. Swiftwater has internalized these through her own experience, struggle and time at MSUM.

Swiftwater credits her grit to being raised by a single mother of five on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

“When you come from a place that has 90 percent of the population living below the poverty line, you have a bit of an uphill climb,” Swiftwater said during her speech.
