Evergreen Welcomes New Member of Board of Trustees - Claudia Kauffman RedMorningStar Begins 4-Year Term

Claudia Kauffman RedMorningStar has been named to the board of trustees of The Evergreen State College by Gov. Gary Locke. Her four-year term starts immediately as she replaces outgoing trustee Bill Frank Jr. “We look forward to the contributions that Claudia will make to our discussions and deliberations,” said Evergreen President Thomas L. “Les” Purce. “There is serious work ahead of us as we continue to provide our students with an outstanding liberal arts education.”
RedMorningStar, an Auburn resident, has been the intergovernmental affairs liaison for the Muckleshoot tribe since 2001. She previously worked for the People’s Lodge Project and as a consultant to the Oglala Sioux tribe for water supply systems.

The Nez Perce tribal member studied at the University of Idaho and Oglala Lakota College. She co-founded the grassroots organization Native Action Network and sits on the King County Cultural Development Authority, the Minority Executive Directors Coalition of King County and the American Indian Women’s Service of Seattle. RedMorningStar also serves as a member of the Antioch University Board of Visitors.
