Journey of Life

Nancy Egan is a member of the Shoshone-Paiute Tribes of the Duck Valley Reservation in southern Idaho near the Nevada border. She is the great, great, great granddaughter of Chief Egan of the 1878 Bannock-Paiute Indian War in Oregon. Nancy will speak about the journey of life as taught by her grandparents, a brief history of War Chief Egan in the Bannock-Paiute War, and how education compliments her people’s life today.

Nancy holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business/Management, and an Associate of Arts Degree in Social Work. She is a committed leader, an educator, and a firm believer in her community and working together. Her aspirations are to encourage leadership and to prepare the path for generations to pursue their educational endeavors. Dreams become visions as we prepare for every challenge along this journey in life.

The mission of the Natural Way-Indigenous Voices, an Earth & Spirit Council program, is to honor all traditions that value the earth. The Natural Way provides a forum for those who strive to preserve and enhance earth-based, sustainable living to share their traditions, knowledge and beliefs about the earth.
