Enrolled Oglala Lakota Tribe Member

NCIA Term Expires: January 21st, 2026.

Early in the 1940s my mother’s family came to Crawford, NE from a district of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, Oglala, SD. Mom met Dad, a rancher, they married and moved to work 2 sections of land in Sioux County. Of their marriage, I and five siblings were born in Crawford, Dawes County.  My husband Scott and I raised our two children at HeSapa, then we moved back to the White River Valley in 2012. Together we built Nebraska’s first Earthship inspired eco-friendly home. I am fortunate that I can drive and in less than two or three hours arrive at Lakota sacred sites to participate in ceremonies at our Indigenous places of origin. Going forward I intend to support the work of healing hearts, minds, and soils. Unci Maka (Grandmother Earth) represents me, I answer to my ancestors.
