Colleen Jollie earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Native American Studies and a Master’s degree in Public Administration, both from The Evergreen State College. She is a descendant of the Turtle Mountain Chippewa Tribe. Ms. Jollie worked to create the Longhouse Education and Cultural Center at Evergreen; she helped found the Potlatch Fund and the Northwest Native American Basketweavers Association. Whether creating a new building or an organization, Colleen gathers people together to bring out ideas and create new realities. She describes this as “getting everyone into one canoe and pulling together toward a common destination.” She was deputy director at the Governor’s Office of Indian Affairs and the Tribal Liaison at the Washington State Department of Transportation.
