The Friends of Hubbell
National Historic Site Welcomes You!

Kyra Capitan is a senior at Navajo Technical University (NTU) in Crownpoint, AZ. Kyra is majoring in Biology with plans to earn her Bachelor of Science Degree in this field. The recipient of one of Friends of Hubbell’s $2,500 undergraduate scholarships, Kyra plans to become a Wildlife Biologist.

She has taken full advantage of the opportunities available to her through NTU. Kyra has conducted research at Harvard University during two summer internships with the university. She has also worked two internships with the United States Department of Agriculture Wildlife Services – one in Knoxville, TN and the other in Klamath Falls, OR.

“With the new skills and knowledge that I have acquired, it is my desire to use these on the Navajo Nation and within my community. The internships have helped me to modify and solidify my career goals and have given me a new passion for serving my community,” Kyra says.

“As an aspiring biologist, this will make an impact in my life because I will have the opportunity to work with a variety of wildlife animals, providing public safety and educating my people on wildlife, while also embracing our cultural traditions and teachings of what these animals represent in our Dine’ culture,” she states.
