Introducing Yufna Soldier Wolf, Our New Executive Director

Tous beisiihi' neito'eino'! Greetings to all my relatives!

My name is Yufna Soldier Wolf. I am a 2022 graduate of the Indigenous Peoples Law Program at the University of Oklahoma, Norman. My parents are Mark and Florita Soldier Wolf. I grew up here on the Wind River Reservation, graduated from St. Stephens Indian School, and then went on to graduate at various other Universities. I went to school most of my young adult life and then moved home to start a family while I worked for the Northern Arapaho Tribe. I then decided to finish a degree I wanted for quite a while, which was for Federal Indian Law. I have been hired by the Riverton Peace Mission and want to meet the goals/priorities of Indigenous people in our communities of creating a healthy environment for our people, bridging gaps in tribal perspectives as far as being proud of who we are, and understanding what we contribute to society as tribal people. I have lobbied at the state and in D.C. I bring with me partnerships, contacts, and collaborations that were built off trust and respect.

In being hired as the Executive Director, I love the idea of RPM becoming an Indigenous led organization. I feel that the name should reflect that. I also feel that there is much work ahead of us. I look forward to collaborating and working within our diverse Indigenous community; working on relationship building and overall being proud of who we are as Indigenous people. I look forward to growing our Indigenous and non-Indigenous community in shared values and perspectives. This will take time but is vital as we build a foundation we can all work from. I look forward to seeing how we can work together in the future!

Hohou! Nohuusoho'. Thank you!

It’s December! The days are shorter. Riverton has had below zero temperatures nearly every day this week. Travel is hazardous from the record snowfall of nearly two feet within 24 hours. Stress abound
