CARBONDALE, Ill. — An event Southern Illinois University Carbondale is hosting this month in honor of Native American Heritage Month is changing dates due to illness.

The planned event featuring Troy Wayne Poteete, a founding member of the Trail of Tears Association, as the keynote speaker will be moving to 6 p.m. Nov. 14. Poteete, who served on the board of directors for the association for more than 20 years before becoming executive director in 2014, will speak at the John C. Guyon Auditorium in Morris Library.

An acclaimed Cherokee history storyteller and lecturer, he inspires audiences with stories that meld his rich Cherokee Nation family history with experiences from his lifetime of service in the Cherokee Nation government.
