First Native-American astronaut pushes STEM studies for Native-American students

John Bennett Herrington, who took Native-American culture to outer space, wants to take science to Native-American students.

Herrington, the first Native-American to walk in outer space, came to Rapid City this week to meet with the American Indian Institute for Innovation to discuss the importance of the STEM fields — science, technology, engineering and math — for Native American high school and college students.

“They’re the most underrepresented group in STEM fields,” Herrington said. “We work with them to improve their chances for success.”
