Adson is an enrolled member of the Comanche Nation who also represents the Pawnee and Dine' (Navajo) nations. He was born and raised in Pawnee, Okla. and is a member of the Native American Church. Adson earned his business degree with an emphasis in American Indian leadership from Bacone College in 2019.

“I feel thankful and honored for the opportunity to be the next Director of the Center for American Indians here at Bacone College,” Adson said. “First and foremost, I believe Native American culture begins in the home. Our intent and goal at Bacone is to provide a culturally aware environment that allows students to feel comfortable while studying away from home.

“Whether you come from a cultural background or are seeking cultural understanding while here at Bacone, we will provide a center of academics, recreation and spirituality that any of our students can relate to," he said.

Do you appreciate a Native perspective on the news? 

For the past decade-plus, we’ve covered the important Indigenous stories that are often overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the toppling of colonizer statues during the racial equity protests, to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools, we have been there to provide a Native perspective and elevate Native voices.

Our news is free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts. Any contribution — big or small — helps us remain a force for change in Indian Country and continue telling the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked.  Most often, our donors make a one-time gift of $20 or more, while many choose to make a recurring monthly donation of $5 or $10.  Whatever you can do, it helps fund our Indigenous-led newsroom and our ability to cover Native news.
