Stephen Wall

As a multi-ethnic, multi-tribal person, I was raised on a reservation not my own (Mescalero) and in an environment (SW mountians & desert) that is a far cry from my tribal ancestoral environment (Great Lakes). My identity as an indigenous person is based in my experiences with the peoples of the Southwest and not those of my relatives in Minnesota and New York. My grandmother was from Leech Lake, but enrolled in White Earth and my grandfather was from the Cattaragus Seneca reservation in New York. My early life experiences were based in being an only child in a fairly remote farm, thus I had deep relationship with the natural world. As I moved into adulthood, education, religion, and urban experiences impacted both my spirituality and my relationship with Creation. As I have matured, I have been able to reflect upon the whole of theose experiences and this is what has informed my role as an educator.
