    Ask an Expert:
    Cultural Appropriation -
    What's the Problem?


    Wednesday, January 26
    1:00 pm

    The appropriation of indigenous identity and culture has been an issue for tribes for centuries. From football team to butter to movies, and even the original MMA logo, the identity of tribal nations has been used in a plethora of marketing and media. This talk will discuss where appropriation occurs in American society and the harm it does. 

    Eric works to collect and curate historical materials pertaining to LTBB Odawa. Those materials are used to create exhibits, signage, publications, curriculums, programs and support the tribal government. Eric has experience working under the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). Eric currently sits on the Michigan Historical Commission and Little Traverse Conservancy. He is a past board member for the Michigan Historical Society, Michigan Humanities Council, National NAGPRA Review Committee and Emmet County Historical Commission.

    Ask an Expert: Career Transitions


    Tuesday, February 22
    1:00 pm


    We all have the potential of experiencing a midlife crisis.  What about a career crisis?  Job not inspiring you? Jealous of that colleague moving on to a new position?  Feeling guilty about not being excited about tackling the next strategic plan?  In this Q&A session we will explore some of the telltale signs of career burnout, how we lose sight of those things that bring us joy both personally and professionally, and learn ways to explore alternatives for the future.

    Craig Olson is an Executive Coach who works with individuals  contemplating career transitions, emerging leaders, and leaders going through organizational transition.   He is especially interested in his clients' stories, but one question drives the majority of his conversations: “How can you take your experiences, both good and bad, and use them to create a better future for yourself and those around you?”
