Tae ho węhs aka Amos was born into the Onkwehonweh Civilization, and is a member of Mohawk Nation, gifted into the Turtle Clan of his Mother and conferred to the Sacred Circle of Faith Keepers of the Longhouse, at Six Nations of Grand River Territory.
He is an educator and staunch advocate for: First Peoples Human, Civil and Linguistic Rights; Social Justice; the decolonization of Indigenous Education and the emancipation of Indigenous Peoples. As a Change Agent: he is a social activist who promotes social change and social enterprise; and is an advocate for Indigenous Social Justice.
He is a strong voice in improving the quality and delivery of Indigenous Education and is a strong proponent volunteerism and ‘civic engagement’ in First People’s communities. He is a keen observer and is confident in addressing injustice and human and civil rights issues facing First Nations Civilizations within, Ontario, and within Canadian Society at large.
His early career started with the London Board of Education as First Nation's Guidance Counselor and Native Studies Teacher and continues today with First Nations Bilingual Education. When he returned home to be the Director of First Nations Languages at Woodland Centre he: co-founded the Gawenni:yo Cayuga/Mohawk Immersion School System (K-12); engaged Faith Keepers/Wisdom Keepers to record and create the world’s largest digital archive of Onkwehonweh Ceremony and Rituals; engaged Elders to publish a Cayuga Dictionary and was successful in acquiring a multi year /million dollar SSHRC research grant for the Cayuga Language.
He continues to advocate for the exceptional potential of ‘synchronous’ Indigenous e-learning secondary school education. He founded and incubated the award winning and Ontario’s first Indigenous synchronous ‘Dream Catchers’ E- Learning Secondary School. In the past he has held elected appointments many positions at the Local, Provincial and Federal levels.
He just recently was appointed to the University of Toronto’s, Centre for Indigenous Studies, to lead courses on Reconciliation and Languages as a ‘tenure tracked’ Professor.
In addition to his role in safeguarding and stabilizing the Onkwehonweh languages, he led the charge in restoring and refurbishing the former Mohawk Institute Indian Residential School, as a decolonization project of ‘reconciliation’ by founding the ‘Save the Evidence’ fund raising campaign.
These efforts will establish a new tactile museum and interpretation centre that showcases and tells the true story of the Indian Residential School era in Canadian History. Amos is well on his way to help create Canada’s first ‘Canadian Museum of Conscience’ (CMC).
To relieve stress from his career and to satisfy and nourish his ‘alter ego’ with good medicines, Amos still dances as a Mens Traditional Pow wow Dancer all summer. And is an avid singer of Onkwehoweh Ceremonial and Social Music.
