Tribal Council tackling challenges

For Jake Suppah, the secretary-treasurer for the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, returning to the community was just the first step in making a difference in the community.

Suppah, 37, grew up in Warm Springs, and moved back from Arizona last summer, when he was selected by the Tribal Council as the new secretary-treasurer, a position equivalent to chief executive officer in the organization. Upon his return, he found new faces on the council and a new desire to improve the tribal organization.
