Confederated Tribes of the
Umatilla Indian Reservation

An enrolled member of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, Lindsey has served his People for 30 years...as a warrior, educator, and healthcare provider. Upon graduating from Chemawa Indian Boarding school in 1990, he joined the U.S. Air Force serving from 1991-98 during the Persian Gulf War. Honorably discharged, he returned to the reservation to learn more about his heritage, his People, their traditions...and his tribal community’s social
and economic needs. With this knowledge as motivation, he earned a degree in Philosophy, Political Science
& Economics at nearby Eastern Oregon University, and a Masters in Education (Curriculum & Teaching) from
the University of Oregon in 2010. Lindsey has served Oregon Indian Education for 17 years; and four at
Yellowhawk Tribal Health Center as a Health Educator, Workforce Development Manager, and Cultural
Acclimation (Social Determinants of Health) presenter. He currently serves as Region 2 Chair of the Oregon
Community Health Workers Association.
