About the Artist
“There is a ‘fog’ through which American society perceives Native Americans. I want to help lift this fog by sharing ideas with children that they aren’t normally exposed to such as Native value systems, our history, our contributions to America, and our commonality with all people.” In an atmosphere conducive to opening hearts and minds, Mark engages the students by encouraging questions and participation. An Oneida/Menominee Indian born on the Menominee Reservation, Mark uses humor, storytelling, and dance to challenge stereotypes and help students better understand American Indians, past, present, and future.
