Bernie Whitebear Award Nominations
Bernie Whitebear dedicated his life to celebrating traditional and modern Indian ways and to challenging outsiders’ perceptions. He is best remembered for leading the takeover of the land where the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center now sits, and for founding United Indians of All Tribes Foundation to ensure that the urban Indian community will always have a cultural home.
In Bernie’s honor, each year we recognize one individual who has made a difference in our community through perseverance, commitment, passion and love for our people and community.
