Our Story

Christopher Bowers

Christopher is a Chippewa Indian from the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians. His family originates from the Crane Clan.

He holds Psychology, Education, and Educational & Learning Technologies Psychology degrees from Brigham Young University-Idaho and Kent State University.

He is an accomplished Human Performance Technologist, with four years of providing services on Federal Contracts. He understands the demands placed on contracting companies to ensure that well qualified and experienced personnel are selected to provide support on contracts. While contracting for the USCG, he noticed that the HPT Model could be implemented as a Project Management tool to measure & evaluate performance, implement change, and better communicate with customers to ensure final outcomes and products exceed their expectations.


Chief Shingwaukonse

One of Christopher's ancestors is Chief Shingwaukonse. Much of Shingwaukonse's teachings can be found within GoHPT company culture:

  • We support our country in every way possible,
  • We strive to attain as much education as possible, and
  • We seek for ways to improve the lives of all those that come in contact with us.

Chief Shinguakonse (1773-1854) was an Aanishaabe Warrior Chief who fought in the War of 1812, and later negotiated and signed the Robinson-Huron Treaty. He later snowshoed from Sault Ste. Marie to York, Toronto Canada (approx 800 miles round-trip) to request a teacher for his tribe. He advocated a the creation of a "Teaching Wigwam Lodge" to create a space for people to read and write English while receiving an education to retain their traditions and culture. Chief Shingwaukanse believed in building a strong trade relationship with early settlers that eventually led to a strong mutually beneficial relationship for the tribe and the settlers in the region.
