Bozho Gizgokwé ndezhnëkas bodwéwademi ottawa ndaw, my name is Skye Howell of the Potawatomi and Ottawa Tribal Nations. I am a storyteller guided by my duality of experiences as a biracial, White + Native Cisgender Mother, Wife, and Equity Advocate. I speak in stories and hope the stories I share will connect with your soul.
I was born and raised in Houston as a 7th generation Texan on my Mother's side. My Father's family was separated and detribalized through a forced adoption and we have been stitching together the missing pieces of our family and culture for decades.
As an Adjunct Professor in Academics, Restorative Educator, and Equity Advocate I have over 20 years of collaboration across organizations within the social impact sector to align vision, mission, and daily practices through an anti-racist approach that centers Indigenous practices.
Uplifting the power of storytelling through art, music, literature, and personal reflection, I strive to curate racial healing and restoration spaces where everyone can show up in their Full Humanity My writing is centered on topics of Native American and Indigenous Advocacy, Justice, Educational Equity, Language Revitalization, Diversity, Community Events and Organizations, Culture, Writing, and Mental Health in the Central Texas Community and beyond.
My joy comes from family time with my husband and son, spending time in nature, and writing. I am honored to serve my community as a Board member for Great Promise for American Indians and an active Wildflower Unitarian Universalist church member.
My son inspires me to make the invisible - visible and take action wherever possible to sustain future generations.
