Binnayseequay A. Weso, BSN, RN

Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing

All ages

College of Menominee Nation

My full name is Binnayseequay (Ojibwe), which means Thunderbird Lady, but people call me Binnay. I was given my name by my Dad’s great-uncle, who was a medicine man. He gave me this name because around the time of my birth, there were thunderstorms, sleet and snow, all weather that the Thunderbird brings. I am Ojibwe and Menominee.

My mom was a Nurse Practitioner at Menominee Tribal Clinic for many years. So, it felt natural for me to go into nursing as well. I have been in various types of nursing for 20 years. I felt that mental health nursing was the best fit for me. I have mainly worked inpatient at a psychiatric hospital.

I enjoy reading, movies, exercise and spending time with family. I have four wonderful children, one of whom has Autism. I am very grateful to the Oneida Nation for giving me the opportunity to work with and serve the Native Community.
