A wonderful, wise man who brought compassion and pragmatism to the Hennepin County bench. He will be missed but he will be a blessing wherever he goes next on his journey.

A nice article to read. I really know nothing about the judge or any of his decisions, but I wish him well and wish MORE Native Americans were involved in the legal and business communities. I feel bad that so many of them have been truly neglected in our society, and I am still very unhappy that a very, very few of them in the selected tribes have become multi, multi- millionaires while the rest seem to live in lower or poor class. I wish that money could go to ALL Native American communites so they could be equally represented in our society. In my humble opinion, THEY are the neglected minority in this country.

The tribute highlights the fact that people who have the desire, ambition and drive, can achieve their goals and excel at them. From trapper to judge is no easy transition, and this man deserves the respect of his own heritage, but that of everyone else's as well. Good luck in retirement, although it sounds like you'll be using your talents to continue bettering life for natives.
