Mindy McGhee

Tribal Member

Growing up, Mindy was exposed to stories of her elders struggling against the odds to give their children better lives. She also witnessed the triumph of federal recognition in 1984 that has allowed the Tribe to prosper today. Inspired by the perseverance of her people, Mindy mustered her own inner strength to go back and finish college while working and raising three sons. She wants to instill in her kids the ideals her elders fought so hard to keep; that anything is possible with determination, hard work and the support of community.
