Straight Outta Turtle Mountain: Dr. Carol Davis
Join us as Dr. Carol Davis tells us of her eventful life, from helping found a college at age 25, earning a teaching credential and doctorate while raising a houseful of children and grandchildren on the Turtle Mountain Reservation. After retiring from the college presidency, Dr. Davis continues non-stop as water protector, anti-fracking activist, founder of a non-profit research group and is still married to her husband for the past 53 years the incredibly lucky (and patient) Lynn Davis.
I enjoyed your interview Carol. It brought back so many memories. You are as humble and wise as ever. I do think you were born that way. Thank you for sharing your stories. We all need to do more of that. It is important, critical, to the survival of our culture, our survival as a People. Miigwech.
Dear Carol, wonderful interview! When I moved home in the very early ’70s I heard you name over and over – as a tribal volunteer and activist. I so admired you then and still do now decades later! Proud to call you sister/friend, fellow educator, tribal ‘baby’ elders and activists. Still looking for those 500 AIM members to join us in the next protest!
