am interested in serving people where my experience in Native politics,

engaged in responding to federal and provincial policies, federal legislation,


and helping to provide a range of public services (education, social services, child


welfare, policing, public works, health services, housing, employment procurement,



and tribal enterprises) can be useful. I am specifically interested in the health

and well-being of people. I am interested in advances made by medicine, social

science, mental health, and writing. My values are: do no harm; respect all people

regardless of their origin, heritage, and belief; I value history, tradition, and culture

but also in the future and in the possibility of engaging confirmed knowledge

with new findings that can be explored, defined, processed, and validated for the

benefit of people. I am especially interested in voicing health careers for Native

people, in particular the youth. I would like to be associated with processes and

persons, who operate with a minimum of specific governmental direction, are

independent, forwarding looking, ethical, and responsible to society.
