Tribal leaders make major decisions about finances, public safety, and societal well being. They need vision, dedication, and a thick skin. Today on Native America Calling, in the latest conversation of our tribal leadership series, Shawn Spruce talks with tribal president Kevin Killer (Oglala Sioux), Chairman Jordan Dresser (Northern Arapaho), and Tribal Chief Mike Williams Sr. (Yupiaq) about what drives them to be in a position of authority and how they prepare for inevitable criticisms.
