Who is He-Lo Ramirez? We're shining a light on the President of the Native American Heritage Society of Chico State in this Month's Student Spotlight.


My name is He-Lo Ramirez, and I am a senior majoring in biology with the option in ecological, evolutionary, and organismal biology. I am also the President of the Native American Heritage Society. As an enrolled member of the Mechoopda tribe, my heritage deeply contributes to my field of study and current research. My current independent research includes studying variant leaf morphology of valley oaks, and western pond turtle nesting behavior--both of which are native species to this area.
