For over 15 years Tania has traveled to Winnebago, Nebraska every summer to visit with and learn from her grandparents and relatives of the Ho-Chunk Tribe. She is happy to support WCNK in its mission to build a community for our people in this area, and to create societal change.
Dr. Amanda Morris
Dr. Amanda Morris teaches contemporary Indigenous rhetorics at Kutztown University and serves on this board to support the work of her former grad student and current director of the Center, Amanda Funk, in her efforts to create a larger presence for Indigenous peoples in Berks County. The peoples have always been here, but the larger community lacks awareness of this fact, so the work of the Widoktadwen Center is vital to changing that conversation and increasing awareness and cultural opportunities for Indigenous peoples in Berks County and beyond.
