Sen. Cowles’ Statement on State of the Tribes Address

MADISON– Senator Robert Cowles (R-Green Bay) released this statement following the State of the Tribes Address by Oneida Nation Chairman Tehassi Hill on behalf of the Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council: 

“I thought Chairman Tehassi Hill did a good job of continuing the discussions and the relationships between the State Legislature and Wisconsin’s tribal nations. The Oneida Nation plays a pivotal role in the culture, community, and economy of Northeast Wisconsin. It’s only fitting that their contributions to our region and our state were highlighted by a strong advocate such as Chairman Hill.

“I especially would like to thank Chairman Hill for his focus on clean water during the address and for the Oneida Nation’s continued efforts to safeguard water quality for Northeast Wisconsin residents.”
