    Ely Parker | Part 1 | Teenage Diplomat

    Ely Parker | Part 1 | Teenage Diplomat

    It could be said that Ely Parker was the most famous Seneca man of the 19th Century. The grandnephew of Red Jacket became a teenage diplomat, interpreter, aspiring lawyer, domestic engineer and Sachem all before the age of 30. The crazy thing is, that is not at all what he is remembered for. Later in life he would become a General in the Civil War, a Wall Street broker and the first Indigenous person ever to be the Commissioner of Indian Affairs.
    In this episode we look at the early years of Ely S. Parker.

    One Dish, One Spoon

    One Dish, One Spoon

    This is an interview that Andrew did in 2018 on the award winning One Dish, One Mic radio show. The name comes from the idea of One Dish and One Spoon. An ancient concept going back at least to the foundation or the Haudenosaunee Confederacy itself.

    Sean Vanderklis (Mississauga) and Karl Dockstader (Oneida) were gracious enough to give us permission to let us air this on our channel.
