During this program, Warren Queton (Kiowa, Cherokee, and Seminole) will discuss American Indian veterans in the military and their relationships to traditional American Indian culture. The talk will examine many aspects of Native American culture, as well as identify and hopefully remove some stereotypes audience members may have acquired over their lifetimes. Among the topics to be discussed are the key components of Warrior Tradition in Native society, information about contemporary American Indian and Alaskan Native veterans, how to distinguish and utilize appropriate American Indian and Alaskan Native vocabulary, and how to apply cultural knowledge to work more effectively with Indigenous community members.
