Celebrate Native American History Month learning about Native women who helped shape history with activist and decolonial education consultant Heather Bruegl.

Throughout history women have played an important role in the family and the community. In this talk we will explore Native women throughout history who have done some amazing things. Whether it was fighting alongside warriors or becoming doctors, Native women helped shape history.

Heather Bruegl is a public historian, activist, and decolonial education consultant who works with institutions and organizations for Indigenous sovereignty and collective liberation. Heather is a citizen of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin and a first-line descendent Stockbridge Munsee. She is a graduate of Madonna University in Michigan and holds a Master of Arts in U.S. History. Heather is the former Director of Education at Forge Project and travels frequently to present on Native American history, including policy and activism.

Heather respectfully acknowledges that she works and resides on the unceded, traditional, and ancestral lands of the Three Fires Council- the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawatomi- along with the Peoria, Miami, and Wyandot. Through forced removal, these nations are now located throughout the United States including parts of Michigan, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Kansas, and part of Canada.
