Rebecca Price honored at Celebrating Michiana Women Leaders event

Tribal Council member at large Rebecca Price was one of 12 honorees at the 2017 Celebrating Michiana Women Leaders event. Held each year on Women’s Equality Day, August 26, the event is part of the Michiana Women Leaders Project, which collects and documents women leaders’ contributions through their oral histories.

Price was nominated by Cristal Brisco, an attorney who has worked with the city of South Bend and St. Mary’s College, for her devotion to providing and improving community-based health services for her tribe. Through her nursing work with diabetes prevention, domestic violence awareness, and education, Price has embraced her bear clan medicinal and protective heritage.
