Many Indigenous people have certain protocols for introductions. In keeping with the protocols of my Ojibwe ancestors, please allow me to introduce myself first Ojibwemong:

Boozhoo, Mark Bellcourt niin indizhinikaaz zhaanaashiimong. Bimose Inini idash nindigo Ojibwemong. Gaawiin ningikenimaasii indoodem. Gaa-Waabaabiganikaag niin indoojibaa. Ashkibugziibing nindayendaa noongom.


Greetings, my English name is Mark Bellcourt. However, I am called Walking Man in Ojibwe. I do not know my clan. I come from White Earth, but now I live in St. Paul.

I earned my Ed.D. from the University of Minnesota in 2005 in higher education policy and administration. My research interests are in Indigenous worldviews of math and science and how they can be better integrated into the mainstream curriculum. My master's degree is in counseling and psychological services and bachelor's degree in educational psychology and communications. I am currently the Coordinator for the Access to Success (ATS) program in the College of Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Sciences (CFANS) and senior academic adviser in the College of Education and Human Development. I teach a global seminar to Mexico exploring how tourism has impacted the Maya Riviera and the way the Maya people use the land. I also teach an introduction to Native American Ways of Knowing the Environment course.
