Native American Heritage Month Spotlight on Duckwater Shoshone Chairman Rodney Mike


Rodney Mike is a member of the Duckwater Shoshone Tribe and is the Chairman of the Duckwater Tribal Council.  Chairman Mike has over 30 years of managerial experience and decision making from employment with an Oil Refinery outside of the Tribal area.

Chairman Mike is devoted to helping the Duckwater Shoshone Tribe move forward towards Self Determination and Self Sufficiency. Chairman Mike’s goal is to help move the Tribe towards better Health Care and Economic Development to supplement current jobs and create new jobs.

Chairman Mike’s  idea is that someday the Tribe will be able to create businesses that will support the reservation so that they do not have to depend on Federal funding and will be able to supplement programs and community, agriculture, ranching and other ventures.
