ON Museum Curator Hallie Winter named to 2018 Native American ’40 Under 40’
The National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development has named Osage Nation Museum Curator Hallie Winter as part of their 2018 class of “Native American 40 Under 40.”
The recipients will be honored at the River Spirit Casino Resort in Tulsa on Oct. 29-30.
The NCAIED selects recipients from a long list of nominations from across Indian Country. Each year they put out a call to tribal nations to nominate members from their communities under the age of 40 who have demonstrated leadership, initiative, dedication and have made significant contributions in business and to their community, according to a prepared release. This is the 10-year-anniversary of the awards.
“The 2018 40 Under 40 award recipients are made up of a diverse group of young women and men cultivated from across American Indian and Alaska Native communities," said Chris James, President, and CEO of the National Center in the release. "Each of these individuals has devoted their skills and resources to enhancing their communities. From business, academia, healthcare, tribal government, politics, non-profits, journalism, the law, finance, and marketing, 40 under 40 winners are shining examples for all of us to follow. For the 10th year in a row, it is an honor to recognize these individuals and leaders who will continue to define success for the future of Native American business."
The event - "Impacting Generations: Honoring a Decade of Exceptional Service and Leadership" - will be held in conjunction with the National Center's next Native Edge Institute, a one-day training session focused specifically on procurement.
Past and present 40 under 40 awardees will have the opportunity to participate in programming with the goal of providing additional professional development, networking, leadership, and mentorship opportunities, according to the release.
