In Memory of TEȺȽIE (Nadine Charles)
December 26, 1957 – February 19, 2019

In January 2018, Dr. Elder THE-LA-ME-YÉ Shirley Alphonse, Elder TEȺȽIE D. Nadine Charles, and Theresa Bell began collaborating to create the Four Feathers Writing Guide. Elder Charles’ generous sharing of her wisdom and enthusiasm for helping others learn is evident throughout the guide, and we dedicate it to her memory as our beloved Elder.
