Keith & Chenoa Egawa
Keith and Chenoa Egawa are a brother and sister of Lummi and S'Klallam Indian ancestry. Keith is a published novelist (Madchild Running; Red Crane Books, Inc.) with background in the fields of education reform and social work. His extensive work with families has provided him with both inspiration and insight into his subject matter. In addition to literary readings for adult audiences, Keith has conducted writing workshops for Native youth throughout the U.S. 

 

Chenoa has worked as a professional illustrator, international indigenous human rights advocate, actor, and is a traditional ceremonial leader and singer. She was a fellowship recipient from the Institute of Current World Affairs, and traveled throughout Central and South America facilitating communication among indigenous peoples to protect and preserve traditions, languages and homelands. Chenoa has also worked in the public school system to create programs that teach Native American culture and history, empowering Native youth and improving racial equity.

Chenoa and Keith are also available to conduct presentations to students.
