Apache Danforth Joins Perodigm!
Apache Danforth (Yakowanahastu - "She speaks good words") is of the wolf clan and a citizen of the Oneida Nation in Wisconsin. Apache is an Independent Consultant who has recently begun working with Perodigm Design Studio to assist with public relations and project management of a Wisconsin human trafficking prevention training and campaign.
Previously, she was honored to hold the role of Tribal Tourism Development Director for Native American Tourism of WI (NATOW), where she worked closely with Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council, the 11 Sovereign Nations in Native Wisconsin, and tribal leaders. Together they worked to develop, market, and promote Native tourism initiatives in a manner respectful of our culture, values, and beliefs.
Apache received her M.A. in Public Relations from the College of Communication and Information at Kent State University. She holds a B.A. in Organizational Administration from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. She attributes the start of her career in PR to her work in the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs and Communications as a PR Specialist for the Oneida Nation. Starting as an intern, she gained almost 10 years of experience working with Tribal Government.
She is the mother of six children and the grandmother of two. She lives with her family on the Oneida Nation reservation.
Apache is also a member of several boards including the American Indian Chamber of Commerce WI - Board of Directors and the WI Governor's Diversity Equity Accessibility Inclusion Committee.
We are excited to have Apache as part of the Perodigm team and look forward to the value, experience, and knowledge she will bring to each project.
Please join us in welcoming Apache!
