Mohegan Tribe's Don Chapman To Participate In NY Stock Exchange Opening Bell Ceremony

Feather News

Don Chapman, the senior advisor on Native American affairs to the U.S. Secretary of Commerce, will be part of the New York Stock Exchange's opening bell ceremony on the morning of November 11. Chapman will participate along with Navajo Code Talker veterans.

Chapman is believed to hold the highest ranking federal office of any Mohegan tribal member.

Chapman also took part in his federal capacity today in a ceremony to unveil a 2,400-pound sculpture of an Indian on the James River in Richmond, VA. The dedication, which marks the statue's removal from its previously controversial spot at the minor leage baseball stadium of the Richmond Braves, also kicks off Native American History Month.
