Skye, a member of the Deer Clan from the Tonawanda Seneca Nation, will present “Indigenous Peoples: Echoes of History and Culture.” He has extensive experience in higher education as a faculty member for three Western New York colleges. With his passion and expertise in the areas of social work practice, cultural competency and indigenous issues, Skye is continuously shining light on the experiences of indigenous peoples in the region.
His talk will focus on the historical and cultural experiences of indigenous peoples from the Colonial period to the present with an emphasis on the Iroquois Confederacy and how listeners might consider placing themselves in the footsteps of native tribal men and women.
