Biographical and Professional Information

George Godfrey's career spans Lepidoptera research with Illinois Natural History Survey and University of Illinois, college teaching and administration at Haskell Indian Nations University and national leadership in the development of agricultural science and research programs by the Tribal Colleges and Universities (USDA). Upon retirement, he turned to writing.

His Potawatomi culture, ancestry and history are dominant parts of his life. He is president of the Potawatomi Trail of Death Association and is integrally involved in studying the forced removal of his tribe from the Great Lakes area. He strives to pass on his knowledge through his writings, public speaking and tribal dancing. His dancing has been performed as far away as the Altai Republic in southern Siberia. He once was described as a “dust ball” because it is not known where he will appear next.
