I want to thank everyone who voted this year and those who put their name forward to run for our Council! It is my honor to serve on our Council. We all are dealing with the high prices of just about everything including gas at the pumps which in turn increase the price of foods and supplies that support our lives and families. Our work is cut out for us to speak with both Federal and State Legislative Representatives to make sure our programs that provide services will be increased and not put on the chopping block. Some Senators and Congressional Representatives have their favored projects and funding could get reallocated. We have to be ready to lobby. We need all our people to vote in both the State and Federal elections. Voting helps more than you think! I ask you to speak to everyone you know who is over 18 and ask them to register to vote! I will do my best and work hard to help our Council, help our Tribes. We have so much to protect, our Youth, Elders and all our Natural Resources.
Climate Change is real on our Reservation as well as in our Traditional Homelands! Once again, thank you for your support!
Way Leeem lemt
