Tony Dorame

Dr. Tony Dorame was raised in Tesuque Pueblo where he currently resides. His cultural teachings and affinity for nature led him to pursue degrees in Wildlife Biology, Environmental Studies, and Justice Studies at Colorado State University, The University of Montana, and Arizona State University.

As a High School teacher at the Santa Fe Indian School, he incorporated Indigenous knowledge and values into the existing Biology and Agriculture curriculums. He continues to strive to connect students with nature to teach important cultural knowledge and western scientific concepts through the Indigenous Education Network (IEN). As owner of IEN, he is able to also share Traditional Ecological Knowledge through educational programs and workshops for tribal schools, tribal organizations, and the public.
