Marie Kills Warrior
SolarCorps Tribal Program Fellow
My name is Marie Kills Warrior. I was born and raised on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. I grew up in the Medicine Root District which is one of the nine districts. I am the youngest of 7 siblings and raised by a single mother. Before I joined GRID Alternatives I worked at Thunder Valley Community Development Corporation as the Program Director for the Workforce Development Program. However, before I had become the Director I was a participant in the program, from there I transitioned into the assistant construction trainer the position I held for 2 years. It is where I had found my passion renewable energy especially solar. Nothing beats the feeling when your on the roof completing a system. My favorite hobby and stress reliever is fishing. I've been an angler ever since I was 3 years old! It is a great feeling to be a part of GRID!
