Welcome Cheryce Not Afraid!

Please join us in welcoming the newest member of our growing team, Cheryce Not Afraid (Oglala Sioux)! Cheryce came on board this month as our new Operations Manager, and will be supporting the Coalition as we transition to an independent 501c(3) by helping to establish policies and procedures as well as key financial functions within the organization.

“It will be exciting to see what we will accomplish. There are so many things being worked on, and one thing connects to the next,” she says.

Prior to her position as Operations Manager, Cheryce worked for Oglala Lakota College and the Oglala Sioux Tribe. She brings over a decade in financial and grants management to the Coalition. Cheryce holds several degrees, including an Associate’s Degree in Entrepreneurship, a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, and a Master’s Degree in Indigenous People’s Law. Cheryce, her husband, and four children enjoy participating in and watching sports and traveling to powwows. With such a busy schedule, she says her favorite times are those spent at home.

“I love just being at home – having that stability. In this position, I get to help people have that feeling as well,” Cheryce states.
