Margot Clark, Secretary’s Assistant
In May 2013 I accepted a position with my tribe as the Assistant to the Fallon Business Council (FBC) Secretary Ms. Ijames. I have always enjoyed my Native people and give gratitude for having the opportunity to work with the native population for the last 25 years. I have met many talented and professional natives who strive to be instrumental in helping our native nations succeed and enhance their livelihood; the fortitude they have shown to overcome cultural differences and any stereotyping that society my try to place upon our people has been a great lesson within my life. I pray I can be asset to my tribe and share my knowledge & wisdom I have acquired throughout my life.
