I ran for Vice-Chairman of the Chocataw-Apache Tribe in the 2014 elections. As a trained historian and experienced in Cultural resources, archaeology, public history, and heritage management and a sitting Councilmember (2011-2014) I dedicated countless hours toward Federal Recognition (2010-Present). I ran on a platform to ensure preservation of our traditional cultural places and practices. I didn’t win the election, but will seek ways to continue to work for the betterment of my people. Best wishes for the new council and their tasks ahead. with mom
