The Indiana Native American Indian Affairs Commission is pleased to announce that Governor Pence named Sally Tuttle as Chair of the Indiana Native American Indian Affairs Commission (INAIAC) in a press release issued earlier today.
A resident of Indiana for over 40 years, Sally is an enrolled member of the Choctaw Nation and has been active in improving the lives of Indiana Native American Indians and Alaska Natives through her work with the American Indian Council in Lebanon and American Indian Center of Indiana, Inc. In addition, she was one of the cofounders of the INAIAC and was instrumental in creating the Native American license plate, which is the primary source of funding for the Commission. Additionally, Sally has been involved in several national organizations as both a representative and an advocate of Native American Indians.
“I’m honored as a Native and resident of Indiana to be selected by the Governor,” said Tuttle, who will serve out the remaining two years of the term held by former Chair.
