Aanii I am Kassy Heard. I recently moved from the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribal Community in Mt. Pleasant, MI to Lac du Flambeau, WI with my partner of ten year, James. We moved up here to be closer to his family and community of the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.
I started working at Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council as the Fiscal Administrative Assistant in September 2020 and moved to my current position, the Tribal Technical Assistance Center Program Director, this past January. In my current role at GLITC, I provide OAA technical assistance to the eleven Tribal Nations and Bands of Wisconsin. Along with that, I work with SMP conducting outreach and education as well as recruiting and engaging volunteers within the Tribal Communities.
I have enjoyed learning about northern Wisconsin both professionally and personally and look forward to many more seasons here.
