Dan Nanamkin

Dan will take us back in time to hear the passages passed down from generations before. Stories of a land that provided for its people and how the native people nurtured it in response.

Dan is an indigenous educator from Nespelem, Washington, on the Colville Indian Reservation. He takes pride in hearing more of the indigenous Native American perspectives like TED talks with Mark Charles. When he’s not traveling and Pow Wow dancing, he is a public speaker and educator. Through his work, Dan hopes to encourage schools to offer more accurate Native American culture into their curriculum. Dan’s deep connection to his stories and performance will move us all to think about the native land we now call our home.

Fun Fact: Dan likes his coffee black.
