Georgeie is a long-time, loyal member of SAIGE and an advocate for Tribal sovereignty. In past years she has been a presenter at the annual SAIGE training event and she’s consistently been a part of the Planning Committee, helping to prepare for the National Training Program.
Dr. Reynolds, (PhD), founded the Tribal Nations Program for the US Army Corps of Engineers in 2003, reaching more tribal members and employees each year. Her position heading a federal tribal program was life-changing because of the people met and the experiences they shared with her. She considers her greatest accomplishment the development of a two-day training program for the Corps entitled Consulting with Tribal Nations. It continues to be offered.
Georgeie is a graduate of George Washington University and the State University of New York at Binghamton. Her degrees are in anthropology. In 1977, she signed on as a field archaeologist on Alaska’s North Slope and never looked back. During her years in Alaska, she had many adventures in the bush.
She retired to Portland, OR where she is a consultant and writer. She is the author of a memoir, Tundra: A Memoir of Alaska and two booklets on tribal consultation.
