Sky Hopinka: skukum mamuk!

‘Skukum mamuk,’* as they’d say in Kamloops Wawa, to Sky Hopinka!

If you actively f0llow things Chinook Jargon online, you may be familiar with his name.

Sky has been honored as Outstanding Student in Higher Education at the 2012 Oregon Indian Education Association (OIEA) Annual Conference at Grande Ronde, Oregon.

This is for his hard work teaching Chinuk Wawa classes at PSU’s Native American Student and Community Center, a good deed for sure.

*Good job!
