On June 27, 3:30 – 5:30 pm, Toni House of the Wolf Clan, Oneida Nation, will share their creation story at Chief Oshkosh’s mini-bowl. House comes from a matrilineal descent of Oneida women with origins back to Oneida, New York. She is a second-generation English speaker. Fortunately, her mother was an activist advocating for education of the Indigenous ways. Her life path has led her to a final step of formal education as a Ph.D, which focused on her Indigenous language and culture and the importance of identity development. This path has led her to discovering the importance of learning the Indigenous stories of her ancestors. Through this empowering journey she has made a personal and professional commitment to share the Indigenous knowledge she encounters along her life path as a professor as well as grandmother, mother and aunty.
Attendance will help bring back the mini-bowl tradition that Chief Roy Oshkosh started behind Chief Oshkosh Native American Arts in Egg Harbor at 7631 Highway 42. For more information call 920.868.3240.
