  • One of the leaders of the Spokane Tribe, an executive order tribe established in 1881.

  • Knew he’d found a job he liked when he got up and felt good, left work and felt good.
  • Was in the military for six years and says his head and heart were “in conflict” because he knew it wasn’t what he wanted to do.
  • Now provides health education to individuals and families in his tribe.
