Mashantucket woman Michele Scott redefines the meaning of Indigenous representation

Updated: Feb 17

As an Indigenous woman, Michele Scott wants to showcase the different ways that representation can look.

Scott is a member of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Council. She also chairs the Tribe's Economic Development and Health & Human Services Committees. She said her years of work training healthcare professionals and community advocates were made possible by the support and inspiration from her tribe.

“It’s just always been instilled in me that we all have strength and we’re going to be leaders regardless. Everyone is going to be a leader. It just depends on what field you end up in, what area of interest,” Scott said.
