On Wednesday, we honored some of the emerging leaders in Indian Country by announcing our Native American scholarship award winners, as well as winners of the “Native American 40 under 40” award. This is a very deserving group, and we know they will continue to be shining examples for all of Indian Country to follow in the years ahead.
In September, the National Center worked with the Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Conference of State Legislatures to host a National Tribal Energy Summit. The summit brought together cabinet-level officials, including DOE Secretary Ernest Moniz and Department of Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, as well as state governments, private industry, utilities, and representatives from academia to explore energy development and security issues identified by both tribes and the DOE.
In March, young Valentino Rivera – son of former Pueblo of Pojoaque Governor George Rivera – was severely injured in a car accident in the Santa Fe area. He recently returned home after spending months in a rehabilitation center in Baltimore, and is slowly but surely making progress in his recovery.
