Dr. Lisa Uhlir

November 15, 2022: Dr. Lisa Uhlir, "Native American Contributions to Our American Way of Life Today"

"Native American Contributions to Our American Way of Life Today"

Today's emphasis is often on the struggles diverse groups have had throughout history. I want to shift that discussion to a positive affirmation of the hundreds of influences that indigenous peoples still have on all cultures in every day life; from a federal system of government to the earliest sunglasses—from the expansion of the Spanish Empire and the British Navy, to medicines such as aspirin and quinine.

Meet Dr. Lisa Uhlir

Dr. Uhlir is one of those individuals who love learning and would stay in school forever just studying if she could. This is most likely why her multiple degrees range from chemistry to Russian studies, to economics and political philosophy. Her original goal was to be a spy but the end of the Cold War and the Clinton hiring freeze on embedded spies halted that dream mid-hiring process with the CIA. Dr. Uhlir grew up in Northern Michigan and is an Ojibwa Native American from the Sugar Island Band. She has taught locally at UTA and UNT, and currently is a full tenured professor at TCC. She frequently speaks on issues from Native Boarding schools to Native healing.
