Revisiting Our Conversation With Brigitte LaPointe-Dunham, CEO of the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community


We wanted to visit and share our podcast discussion with Brigitte LaPointe-Dunham, CEO of the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community, that we recorded November 2021. This was before she was appointed to NMU’s Board of Trustees by Governor Whitmer, and so we thought you might be interested in listening if you haven’t yet!

In this episode, Brigitte talks about her experiences growing up in the UP on the KBIC reservation and how it influenced her values and her career, and the biggest issues currently facing the KBIC–including education, employment and job training, healthcare, and more.

You can watch the video discussion here, or listen to the audio podcast here.
