Kaheé! Awé-Kootaá-iikuash Biik. Bii-Apsaalookak. Greetings! My name is Scott Flat Lip. I am an Apsaalooké (Crow). I am a husband and father to three wonderful children. I currently teach Health Enhancement at Hardin High School. I am going on my fifth year of teaching. When I am not at school or teaching, I enjoy playing with my children and spending as much time with my family as I can. Another thing I love to do is run. As an ultra-trail runner, I spend my time running on the roads, hills, and in the mountains. This is a way for me to connect with the land the same way many of my ancestors once did. Ahó
