Native American Guest Blogger: Andrew Bentley
One year has passed since Andrew Bentley began contributing to this blog and assisting National Relief Charities (NRC) with services on the reservations. Andrew first came to NRC as an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer.
Recently, Andrew began a new role serving St. Francis Indian School on the Rosebud Reservation. An enrolled member of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina, Andrew grew up in Baltimore, Maryland. In college, he studied broadcasting and digital communications – his work at St. Francis will make full use of this background.
But there’s good news for our readers too: I’m excited to let you know that Andrew will also be continuing as a guest writer for the National Relief Charities blog, where he has built up quite a following.
Andrew stays tuned in to the successes and modern day concerns of many tribes and especially the Sioux tribes in South Dakota. He brings an important voice in behalf of Indian country that needs to be heard. I hope you will continue to follow Andrew as he speaks to use from the Rosebud Reservation. In the meantime, you can read more about Andrew Bentley on his bio page.
