Trumbull Notes 11-17-16

November 17, 2016

Today I send you a mini-Trumbulletin about a very special tea guest; tomorrow I’ll send you a broader one.  To get right to the point of today’s message…….

Come hear a very special guest, Karen Diver, Special Assistant to President Obama for Native American Affairs speak today at 4 p.m. in the Trumbull House.

Today, at 4 p.m. in the Trumbull House I will be hosting a very special Tea Guest: Karen Diver.

Karen Diver is a Native American who has been serving as the Special Assistant to President Barack Obama for Native American Affairs.  As such she has been a member of his Domestic Policy Council.

I hope that many of you will be able to attend.  As usual we’ll start with tea and coffee and some treats in the dining room (which you may carrying into the living room) and then she’ll speak with us.  (I, myself, am interested not just in what she has been doing but in what she

anticipates will happen going forward with the new administration.)

Karen holds a Bachelors Degree in Economics from the University of Minnesota and a Master’s

Degree in public policy for the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. 

She has served as the Chairwoman of the Fond du Lac Ban of Lake Superior Chippewa for eight years and as the Vice President of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe.  She worries about housing for people, she worries about women’s issues, she worries about climate preparedness and she worries about natural resources and how to address all these issues. 

We’re very fortunate to have an opportunity to hear her speak and to have her address our questions.
