Dean of DU’s School of Personal Success Faculty Member – School of Personal Success – Native American Studies, Mindset & Life Purpose
A direct descendant of Black Elk of the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Mount Pleasant, Michigan, Robert TallTree casts a long shadow. Walking a clear path between the worlds of contemporary America and that of traditional Native American peoples of today, TallTree brings a fresh voice and clear vision to who we are and what we can choose to become.
Having at one time worked his way up through the ranks into a traditional white-collar job, he understands the effects of corporate thinking. The relevance he brings from his own experience and beliefs into the corporate world is pivotal.
Multi-talented and boundlessly energetic, TallTree appears to have found his own balance through numerous outlets, not just as a professional speaker, but in the arts as well. An accomplished flautist, he was nominated for the prestigious Native American Music Awards.
Author, business owner, former elected Chief of the Lone Feather Indian Council of Colorado Springs, consultant – TallTree admits he does not perceive what he does as work. Robert TallTree never faces a single day as though it were an obligation, but rather a privilege.
As a child, he learned to appreciate every person he would meet in his lifetime. Perhaps that is why there are few who don’t instantly connect with this compelling and charismatic teacher.
As a professional speaker, Native American Storyteller and International Recording Artist for more than twenty years, audiences around the world have been touched by the message and powerful presence of Robert TallTree. Nationally renowned speakers and trainers, Robert and his partner Terri Lynn have appeared on PBS, the BBC, Animal Planet and the Discovery Channel. Through traditional and contemporary American Indian music and stories, they teach us to respect ourselves, the Earth and all living things. Few presenters are able to connect as deeply with an audience. The experience of their performance lasts a lifetime.
