Silverhorn is a citizen of the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma, and is actively working towards expanding the public’s understanding of Native history and the living cultures many Americans don’t realize they have access to. He has spent the last several years traveling to build bridges and educate organizations on these topics.
Silverhorn will also lead a Moccasin-making workshop on a Saturday later this summer. Stay tuned for details!
