March is , and to celebrate, CPN is highlighting just some of the many women who are positively impacting our Tribe and the broader community. Today, we're highlighting the CHC's very own Dr. Kelli Mosteller, who plays an integral role in connecting Tribal members to Potawatomi history.
Dr. Kelli Mosteller has served as the Director for the Citizen Potawatomi Nation Cultural Heritage Center since 2010. She recently led her team in a multi-year renovation of the CHC’s exhibit. She also administers all activities involving the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act for CPN and is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer.
The Heritage Center has won numerous awards both locally and nationally under her direction, including being recognized as a Top Ten Native Cultural Center in the U.S. by the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums in 2020. She earned her Ph.D. in History with a focus on Native American history and Indigenous Studies, from the University of Texas at Austin.
A descendant of the Ogee and Weld families, Dr. Mosteller is honored to serve her tribal community. She is most passionate about connecting with Citizen Potawatomi tribal members and providing them more opportunities to learn about their families. Following so many years of federal policy toward Native Americans focused on assimilation and erasure of our culture, Dr. Mosteller believes that it is vitally important for Tribal members to be engaged in the learning, sharing and preservation of our history and culture.
Commemorative events such as Women’s History Month are important to Dr. Mosteller as a reminder to make sure that we are doing everything we can to preserve and promote the history and accomplishments of women in our communities. “Elevating the stories of, researching the experiences of, and promoting equality for women must always be a priority if one really wants to understand the world we live in,” she says. WHM is an opportunity to do more in-depth programming and bring everyone’s attention to these histories annually.
