‘Hope and Change’ Message Key to Atleo

By David Wiwchar

VANCOUVER – Staring out across a sea of people jammed into the Washington Mall, a hereditary Chief from a tiny village thousands of miles away, nods and smiles.

Perched on a stone deck atop the National Museum of the American Indian, Shawn Atleo listened intently as U.S. President Barack Obama spoke of unity and hope in his inaugural address.

“I was honored to be invited by the National Congress of the American Indian tribes and the Cherokee Nation to witness the swearing in of a man who stands as a symbol of change and hope for so many,” said Atleo, a hereditary Chief of British Columbia’s Ahousaht First Nation.
