Menominee tribe of Wisconsin
Apesanahkwat spent 30 years as the tribal chairman of the Menominee. “It wasn’t something I chose when I came home from Vietnam,” he said. But it led him into a career in Washington, D.C., which is near where he now lives.
When he heard of the events in North Dakota, he felt compelled to drive to the Sacred Stone Camp. “All of these things that are happening are incredibly beautiful,” he said.
