Delana Ayers

Academic & Career Advisor (Hollywood & Trail)

Hello, my name is Delana Ayers aka Delana Deere, born and raised in Oklahoma. My mother is Absentee Shawnee from the Turtle Clan, who is wise and a brave leader. My father is Ponca from the Cedar Clan, who is a prayer warrior. When these two clans came together, they created me! Now, please come by my office and tell me about yourself.

It is my honor and pleasure to serve you as your Higher Education Academic and Career Advisor. Previously, I served our Native American Communities in the Oklahoma City Public Schools as the Native American Advisor. I enjoyed collaborating with my department, school staff, students and their families to create a great support system for our upcoming youth. In addition, it is my passion to plant a message of hope for the future of our people across the nation; a dream I pray that will root itself so that your generation will take leaps of faith toward healing and higher education. It is time we rise onto the platforms with our God given talents and take our positions in the land God gave Indigenous people.
