CROOKS "A TRUE LEADER," SAYS BOIS FORTE CHAIRMAN LEECY

 


In a statement issued today, Bois Forte Band of Chippewa Chairman Kevin Leecy described his friend and colleague Chairman Stanley Crooks as "a true leader on so many fronts." The full statement read:

"Stanley was a tireless defender of tribal sovereignty, which is the lifeblood of our Indian nations. He understood that sovereignty is fundamental to all of our endeavors and all of our successes, and that it must be protected at all times.

"Stanley was also a leader in philanthropy. Indian traditions emphasize the importance of sharing, and under Stanley's direction, the Shakopee Mdewakanton became one of Minnesota's most generous entities. The tribe's philanthropy has helped Indian people across the country, and it has benefited non-Indian people and communities as well.

"Stanley Crooks leaves behind a legacy of leadership and community stewardship that

will be felt for generations to come."
