Professor Cornel Pewewardy is a traditional Comanche-Kiowa elder and Director of Indigenous Nations Studies at Portland State University. Growing up in Southwestern Oklahoma, as a member of the Comanche Nation of Oklahoma, he followed the collective talents of the artists and musicians in his extended family. From this exposure, Cornel learned of his cultural ancestry and rich tribal background at an early age. He will take us on a journey in the traditional ways of his people by way of music, storytelling and an authentic insight that is drawn from many years of his connection to his people, their way of being and his heart.
