Tralynna Scott speaks at the Native American Women’s Leadership Training
Published June 16, 2016
TULSA – Cherokee Nation citizen and staff attorney for Cherokee Nation Businesses Tralynna Scott recently spoke at the inaugural Native American Women’s Leadership Training conference in Anaheim, California.
The conference, presented by Native Nation Events’ Leadership Solutions Group, is designed to provide participants with tangible solutions in developing and fostering leadership abilities within tribal communities.
“Historically, Cherokee Nation was a matriarchal society where women held great responsibility and power within the tribe,” said Scott. “I feel we should honor our culture and give great reverence to women, especially our elders. I participate in events like this to encourage not only female leadership, but leadership in general, and to honor those who came before us and paved the way for us to continue their accomplishments.”
Scott has dedicated her career to her tribe while volunteering any free time to encouraging education and promoting leadership as well as supporting Native American youth.
She serves her alma mater as the assistant director of Native American Student Recruitment for the Native American Alumni of Notre Dame Board of Directors and volunteers as an attorney and advocate for Native American children involved in deprivation cases with Tulsa Lawyers for Children.
“My only wish for the next generation is they build upon the work we are doing now, and do it even better through education and innovation,” said Scott. “The best way to continue improving as a tribe is through supporting our youth and ensuring they have the opportunities to obtain the best education possible.”
Scott is known to encourage and inspire the youth she legally represents to do well academically and use it as a means of broadening their educational opportunities and experiences. She regularly participates in college fairs and other higher education recruiting activities as part of her ongoing effort to promote education, especially within Native American populations.
Scott joined CNB as a financial analyst executive intern in 2005. She has earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting from the University of Notre Dame in 2006, a Masters of Taxation from the University of Tulsa, a Juris Doctorate from the University of Tulsa College of Law in 2013, and a Master Certificate in Human Resources from Cornell University in 2015.
More than 100 women, representing more than forty tribes, attended this year’s Native American Women’s Leadership Training.
