Community Services

Speakers Bureau

What service does the Speakers Bureau provide to the community?

Speakers have in-depth knowledge in many areas:

  • Education in general
  • Indian Education
  • Historical Trauma
  • Health
  • Spirituality, etc.

To a great extent, the Indian Speakers Bureau allows non-Indian personnel, agencies, organizations and programs to contact American Indians that can speak on a subject coming from an American Indian prospective.

The Speakers Bureau is educational in nature – whether it be on culture, characteristics, heritage, language or lifestyles, the speakers do their best to answer questions as best they can from their perspectives as American Indian people.
