Seneca woman becomes Shawnee tribe's first female chief

The Associated Press

Seneca A rural Seneca woman has become the first female chief to ever lead the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma, which is based on the Oklahoma-Missouri border.
Glenna J. Wallace, 68, was sworn in Wednesday at the Eastern Shawnee tribal grounds. She was elected to the post in November.



"To the tribe's knowledge, I am the first female chief," Wallace said.

The tribe traces its history to Ohio in the 1740s and currently is suing that state to reclaim land it wants to use for a casino.

In the low-key ceremony, Wallace quoted Tecumseh, a Shawnee chief, warrior and orator who died in 1813.

"Tecumseh said the seventh generation shall bring my people back," Wallace said. "I am honored to say I am part of that generation, and as a people we want to be successful in returning to Ohio."

The tribe is seeking ownership of 146 square miles in Ohio.

"We want to return to Ohio to be a federal recognized tribe and to be restored in Ohio," she said.

Wallace said she will leave her job as a communications professor at Crowder College in Neosho to devote her time to the tribe.

"This will be a full-time position, and I intend to give full-time energy," she said.

The tribe owns a 57,000-square-foot casino near its Oklahoma headquarters in Ottawa County.

"We are a self-managed casino, but there are things we need to do to keep up with the technology," Wallace said.

Wallace joins a small group of female chiefs that includes Wilma Mankiller, principal chief of the Cherokee Nation from 1985 to 1995; Alice Brown Davis, principal chief of the Seminole Nation from 1922 to 1935; and Grace Goodeagle (1994-96) and Tamara Summerfield (2000-02), who served as chairwomen of the Quapaw Tribe.

That is very cool, especially coming from a tribe which had a tradition of women in leadership.
