About this Event

Co-sponsored by: Columbia University's Oral History MA and the Oral History Association

In this public interview, Francine Spang-Willis, of the Northern Cheyenne Nation and Columbia University Oral History Master of Arts candidate, will have a conversation with educator Brent Stonefish of the Lunaapeew Nation. Their discussion will highlight the Lenape origin story. It will also focus on Brent’s journey to learn living oral history from his and neighboring nations’ elders and to learn the history from a Lenape lens.

Brent Stonefish, turtle clan, is Lunaapeew and a member of Eelūnaapèewi Lahkèewiit (Delaware Nation) in Ontario Canada. Brent is married and is the father of two children. Brent holds a BA in Native Studies from Trent University and a MES from York University. Brent has work extensively in western educational institutions, urban Indigenous communities and for various First Nations communities.

Brent actively uses the skills and knowledge acquired through his mother, valued Elders, ceremony and western education in all aspects of his personal and professional life. Brent has been an education administrator, educator, lecturer, drummer/singer, counsellor, elected First Nations councillor, ceremonialist, policy analyst, manager, an author and is an all-around good guy.

Francine D. Spang-Willis is of the Northern Cheyenne Nation. She is also of settler descent. While she was raised on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation, she resides in Bozeman, Montana and an off-grid cabin in the Absaroka-Beartooth Mountains.

Francine currently serves as the Listening to Harlem and Rethinking Community Engagement Project Manager in the Oral History Master of Arts (OHMA) program and an audit-edit reviewer for the Obama Presidency Oral History Project at Columbia University. She has also served as an Obama Presidency Oral History Fellow. Francine co-owns a business with her husband.
