Dartmouth College

Daniel M. Becker
Daniel is a third-year Native American Studies major. He does research regarding Alaska Native History and Indigenous Rights and Sovereignty. Last fall, he taught a couple of high school classes focusing on those subjects. Next year, he will be writing a book about his family. He drums with Occom Pond, the Dartmouth inter-tribal powwow group. He is a non-statist, non-capitalist, feminist, anarcho-indigenist Yupik muktuk-wallah who bakes a mean carrot cake and enjoys long walks on frozen beaches.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
