Loren Yellow Bird

My name is Loren Yellow Bird. I’m a member of the Arikara tribe. I work for the National Park Service. If you’d say that in the Arikara language or Sahnish is what we say, I’d say (speaks in language).

We go back to what we call our chiefs and our leaders that way. Most chiefs have to do something to try to prove themselves and it’s just to show that they can take care of their people. I mean it, politicians, you know, it’s that type of thing where you gotta try to do things to show that you care about who you’re expecting to take care of.
