National Congress of American Indians roiled by claims of harassment and misconduct


October 19, 2018

As early as 2014, the executive director of the National Congress of American Indians kept multiple allegations of sexual, racial and workplace harassment from the organization’s executive officers and board members, incidents only made known to them by whistleblowers, a High Country News investigation has found.

During that same period, documents show, details of at least one of those sexual harassment complaints were known to the man who had been accused: John Dossett, at that time an attorney for the organization, was identified in complaints by at least two women. He denied the allegations, was reassigned from general counsel to senior counsel in the wake of accusations and has since left the organization.
