About The Speaker

Douglas grew up in Indiana, but his parents had a cabin in the woods on a lake in Kentucky, so he spent his weekends and summers in the woods. He found his first arrowhead when he was six and this fascination with Native American culture never stopped.

On a college field trip to the Schiele Museum, Douglas met Steve Watts. Read more >
