TBOR Gwin for Chairman 2022
Professional Experience in support of my candidacy for TAT Chairman 2022.
I have been an assertive and at times aggressive advocate for the rights of Indigenous Peoples for over 35 years.
A very brief chronological overview of the many positions I've held.
I was appointed by the Governor of North Dkota to serve as the First Indian Youth Representative for our state and our Tribal Nations. I actively participated in the drafting and passage of the first state liquor tax rebate to the Tribes.
Years later I went to law school studied federal Indian law; international Indigenous Peoples Law. After earning my Juris Doctor (JD), I went on to earn my Masters In Environmental Law. I would later have the privilege of Teaching at the Law School level. While here I helped to establish the Masters Program First Nations Environmental Law Fellowship.
I actively participated at the United Nations in New York City, NY and in Geneva Switzerland and founded Adi Nuawacash, a program recovering youth of Ft. Berthold.
Before law school, I earned my Masters in Education. I taught at the University level. I was one of the founding members who built the Five College Indian Studies Program for the prestigious Five Colleges.
I have held executive level posts while working for our sister nation tribes. Including serving as Executive Director/CEO.
I have served as the Executive Director of non-profit organizations. In one instance I was able to bring a failing, about to be shuttered organization back from the abyss.
This is just a snapshot of my experience over the course of these past 35 plus years.
I am ready to aggressively Represent the Nueta Hidatsa Sahnish on September 20, 2022. Why wait for November, Right?
