  • I think bio notes are an important element of interviews. Here a brief note: American Indian activist and attorney Chase Iron Eyes is a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, a member (and staff attorney) of the Lakota People’s Law Project, an initiative founded in 2005 to end the unlawful removal of Lakota children from their families to be placed in foster care outside their communities; and co-founder of the Native American news website “Last Real Indians.” Attorney Iron Eyes is a member of the bar in both Dakotas and tribal courts; licensed to practice law in South Dakota, in the federal courts of both North Dakota and South Dakota, and several tribal court systems. He is a graduate of the University of North Dakota (baccalaureate in political science and American Indian studies) and the University of Denver Sturm College of Law (Juris Doctor, Doctor of Law Degree, with emphasis in Federal Indian law). Iron Eyes was raised on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation and is married, with three children, to pediatrician Sara Jumping Eagle [Chase Iron Eyes bio ref Wikipedia].
