Small (Northern Cheyenne) is the director of Native
Action, an environmental justice organization in Lame Deer, Montana.
Small's political engagement in energy issues began in the early
1970s, when she and other high school students were sent by the
tribal government to visit coal extraction sites on the Navajo
Reservation and in Wyoming, after the Bureau of Indian Affairs
(BIA) signed leases opening the Northern Cheyenne Reservation
to strip-mining. Small later served on a tribal committee that
successfully fought for the cancellation of the BIA coal leases.
She received her law degree from the University of Oregon and
formed Native Action in 1984. Her work at Native Action includes
litigation, drafting tribal statutes, and creating informational
resources for tribal members.
