Daniel Spaulding, a media personality and member of the Nez Perce Tribe, will deliver the keynote speech to celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day.
Spaulding, who hosts the show “The Conversation” on the tribe’s KIYE 88.7 FM radio station, will hold a question-and-answer session afterward. The speech is presented by the University of Idaho Native American Student Center.
Spaulding will speak about Native American representation in media, share his personal journey in radio and delve into the inspiration for creating his own outlets focused on sharing Indigenous perspectives. He also will highlight the positive stories and influential public figures in the Native American community featured on his show over the past five years, including U.S. Department of Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, the first Native American to serve as a cabinet secretary, and actress Devery Jacobs, who played Elora on the Hulu show “Reservation Dogs.”
