Career Overview

Shane was elected into office as District I Representative on September 18, 2018. As a member of Tribal Council, I serve Bois Forte Band members, Tribal programs, businesses, and Tribal government. I serve Band members of my district by listening to their concerns and bring those concerns to the Tribal Council meetings. I push for transparency – open Tribal government and financial reports.

I have lived on the Reservation all of my life and have worked in the Housing department and KBFT89.9FM Bois Forte Tribal Community Radio. I serve on the Bois Forte Ambulance Service and the Bois Forte Fire Department.
