President Cladoosby: Shawn Atleo’s “Resignation Is The Mark Of A True Leader”

Published on May 05, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC – In response to the news that Assembly of First Nations’ National Chief Shawn Atleo resigned, President Brian Cladoosby of the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) remarked:
“I have worked with Shawn on a number of initiatives through the years on everything from international trade to the safety of Native women. I know firsthand of his dedication to working for his people and his decision to step down is evidence of that. This action puts the debate over education at the forefront instead of the debate over his role in the legislation. Shawn’s resignation is the mark of a true leader.”
