Educator @ Two Row on the Grand

I am of the Mohawk Nation, Turtle Clan, born, raised, and still live on the  Six Nations Reserve along the bank of The Grand River. I retired from a thirty-four year tenure as a classroom teacher of  Elementary School in our public school system a decade ago, but remain an active volunteer in the education field, and tutor privately in my own home.

After paddling on the sixteen day Two Row Renewal Campaign from Albany to Manhattan, New York, on The Hudson River in 2013, I was one of four participants who established what is now known as “Two Row on the Grand.” Functioning as a grassroots-volunteer committee, we have watched this project’s participation more than double in size in its three years of existence.  Plans are already underway for Two Row on the Grand 2019.
