Indn's List - Indigenous Democratic Network - Tulsa, OK
INDNís List members are dedicated to electing Native American men and women to office across America. We believe in the power of Indians as candidates, as contributors, as campaign professionals, and as voters to bring about great change in our country.
Only when Indians are involved in the political process are they truly represented. When Indians make law and policy, the needs of Indian Country and all those less fortunate are not ignored.
INDN members believe that America needs people in public office who reflect the beautiful diversity of her people. It is unconscionable that the First Americans are too often the Last Americans to have their voices heard. INDN supports Indian candidates and office holders who understand Indian issues and are responsive to the needs of Indian Country. Only when Indians are effectively involved in the political process can they and their interests be truly represented, and it is only when Indians are united behind a common cause that effective political involvement becomes possible. Thus, INDN is dedicated to unifying and mobilizing Indian voters everywhere to support Indian candidates and Democrats up and down the ballot.
And most importantly, Indian children and adults alike must see other Indians running for and winning higher offices, so that future generations will be inspired to cast their Indian vote and make the Indian voice the palpable force in American politics that it deserves to be.
INDNís List is committed to a four-pronged strategy to elect Democratic Indians and involve Indians in the political process.
Recruiting Indian candidates;
Training Indian candidates and Indian staff;
Funding Indian candidates and campaigns; and
Mobilizing Indian voters to help elect Democratic candidates up and down the ballot.
Our immediate focus is to develop Indiansí political skills and cultivate tribal resources to win elections and increase Native representation at the local and state level. Ultimately, in the future, we plan to launch a sister committee to support Native candidates for the United States Congress, Senate and beyond. Only then can we build a country where diversity is celebrated, civil rights are not negotiable under any circumstances and where the Constitutional promise of equal rights and opportunities for all made over two centuries ago is finally, truly realized.

Unique Visions, Inc. - Rock Hill, SC
Management Consulting - We use stories to shape our traditions, educate our children, entertain our masses, and even to create our futures. Throughout my career, I have been obsessed with harnessing the power of this most familiar tool. First as a writer and filmmaker, then as a creator of 3-dimensional story spaces, and now as a designer of strategic narratives, I employ story to expand our knowledge, deepen our understandings, and create real change.
I believe in the power of informed organizations to shape their future. My explorations into the intersection of narrative and foresight are designed to help others imagine and express their visions for better tomorrows. My work ranges from one on one consultation with change makers to orchestrating glimpses into the future for mass audiences.
