Bush Fellow Jody TallBear to Study Renewable Energy & Tribal Economies

Jody20Tallbear

When Jody TallBear receives her JD from Hamline University School of Law in May she will be ready to begin a "dream job" studying renewable energy as a vehicle to strengthen and diversify tribal economies. As a 2009 Bush Fellowship recipient, she plans to advocate on behalf of Native tribes in Minnesota and the Dakotas, with the goal of helping to ensure the inclusion of tribal interests in renewable energy policy and projects. TallBear also will embark on a self-directed study of federal policies and regulation governing renewable energy development.
