My Story

Alexandrea Walker (she/her) has moved on to a full time teaching potion at Little Priest Tribal College after receiving her Bachelors Degree, in December 2022, from the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO). And though we miss her, we are so happy for her success and still connected with hoped of collaborating on future projects. 

During most of her time at UNO she served as the Vice-President and President of UNO’s Intertribal Student Council (ITSC). Currently, Alexandrea teaches Native American Studies at Little Priest Tribal College (LPTC) and strives to decolonize education and destroy stereotypes about Indigenous peoples.

 

Raised along the Missouri River in Northeast Nebraska, Alexandrea is a citizen of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. She claims her story begins with two Indigenous women; her mother and former member of the American Indian Movement (AIM), her grandmother. As she grew, she would become influenced by leaders in her community to “Take a stand and speak up, because one day you’ll have to represent us.” as a member of the People of the Big Voice.

 

In her teens she would be invited to participate in youth conferences held nationally and locally. In 2016, she had been invited to participate in the National Native American Youth Conference held in Washington DC, in the midst of #NoDAPL where the political climate was hard to breathe in. When she graduated from Winnebago Public Schools in 2018, she began seeking ways to bring change not just to her community, but to all Indigenous nations.

 

Alexandrea began attended large protests and actions to emphasize the importance of issues that face the BIPOC Community. It wasn’t long after Alexandrea met Trisha Rivers at an MMIR event that she would be welcomed to the GPAS Team as a youth organizer.
