Cecilia Fire Thunder should be playing a central role in the administration of the Pine Ridge Indian reservation. A smart, savvy manager she is. I had the opportunity to work with Cecilia years ago in California and she leads from the front.
Joletta Bird Bear, a classmate in elementary school in Mandaree, North Dakota on the Ft. Berthold Indian reservation would be a huge asset to any administration who might be able to effect positive change there.
Two traits that both women share are brains and a tremendous work ethic.
It's still hard to fathom that leaders of their caliber aren't running their respective tribes.
