“I create a kind world through acts of kindness.”
Working with the Native American Cultural Center in Rochester, NY, Ronald helped provide education programs and workforce training to his Native American community. He actively worked to raise awareness of issues affecting Native Americans and to promote cultural sensitivity within the larger Rochester community. He tirelessly negotiated with the Mayor’s office on one such issue. His efforts bore fruit this past October when the City of Rochester celebrated its first Indigenous People’s Day. He helped increase awareness of Native American culture and issues both within the Native American community and the larger Rochester, NY community. Ronald went through his NWTA in October 2007 at Camp Whitman.
