Chris Howell Named Kansas Governor’s Native American Liaison
On July 29, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback announced the placement of Chris Howell as the Native American Liaison according to a press release by the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation.
The Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma member will communicate with the Kickapoo Indian Tribe, the Priarie Band Potawatomi Nation, the Sac & Fox Indian Tribe and the Iowa Indian Tribe on behalf of the Governor’s office.
“Native American Kansans play a very important role in our state’s history, culture and economy. It is essential for them to have a direct line into the governor’s office,” Governor Brownback said. “As a Native American himself, Chris understands the tribal governments and compacts they have with the state. Couple that with his experience as a state government executive and the strong relationships he has with members of the tribes, Chris will serve all Kansans well.”
The Lawrence, Kansas resident has a bachelor’s degree from Emporia State University and has worked in Kansas state government for 19 years.
