Sol Eagle Road – Teacher + Photographer in search for viable solutions and approaches for developing opportunities in Indian Country
Sol Eagle Road is currently working as an English teacher in Japan. He is also enrolled in a full-time program with the University of Oklahoma working on an M.L.S. in Indigenous Peoples Law.
Sol graduated from the University of North Dakota with a B.A. with a Major in Chinese Studies. This was an integral stepping stone in finding viable solutions and approaches for developing opportunities in Indian Country.
Sol studied abroad in Mainland China. He lived in Chengdu, a city in Sichuan Province. The surrounding province is one of the most ethnically diverse provinces in China. About half of the 55 recognized minority peoples live in Sichuan Province. Sol wanted to compare a sense of ethnic and cultural identity with linguistic health of Chinese minority peoples to that of Native Americans and see if minority peoples globally can exist in a country with financial generation as one of its primary goals.
In 2016, Sol was selected as a Udall Scholar, Tribal Policy category.
In May 2014, Sol graduated from Haskell Indian Nations University with an A.A. in Liberal Arts. He is proud and thankful to have received the beginning of his higher education from a university that serves the needs of Federally Recognized Tribes.
