My name is Mitchel Ray, great grandson of Julia Jackson, born to the Solomon line from Tamer Brussels.
Graduated from Trinity Catholic High School in Stamford CT. Educated with a focus on Business Marketing at multiple institutions such as Hampton University, Western Connecticut State University, and Norwalk Community College.
My professional background for many years was as a Senior Payroll Specialist at Paychex Inc., Housatonic Community College, and most recently Indeed.com.
I served on the Eastern Pequot Tribal Nations nonprofit Wuttooantam for 6 years, 3 years as President. I served one term as a tribal councilor and hope to continue to serve. I've studied many historical documents and dedicated many hours to researching northeastern woodland tribal history, especially EPTN history.
