George Price

George Price listens, learns, contemplates, studies, and teaches. He lives with his wife, Barbara, and their son, Noah, on their five-acre permaculture farm on the Flathead Indian Reservation, north of Missoula, Montana. He is an American of several diverse ethnic and cultural ancestries (including Assonet Wampanoag, Massachuset, Choctaw, African, French, and Scottish) who has explored human identity issues for all of his life, both personally and professionally. Since 2012, he now prioritizes the defense of Mama Earth and all species therein above all other interests. Some questions that he patiently seeks to find answers for (in due time, without anxiety): What are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? Price earned a Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Studies at the UM in 2006 and holds a MA from UM and a BA from the University of Oregon.  His publications include: Past and Present: an Introduction to Native American Studies, 20150, and To Heal the Scourge of Prejudice: the Life and Writings of Hosea Easton, edited with James Brewer Stewart, (1999). Dr. Price met the group at the St. Ignatius Catholic Church on the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Reservation and talked about missionization among the Native people; he also met later at the overlook to the Mission Valley and talked about the Dawes Act of 1887, and how the CSKT reservation was divided, with parts eveuntually offered up for settlement by non-Natives.
