Lynnette Grey Bull is Hunkpapa Lakota, from the band of Sitting Bull of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and is also Northern Arapaho from the Wind River Tribe. Lynnette’s victim advocacy efforts began in 2003, as a missionary volunteer on Skid Row in Los Angeles, California. Ms. Grey Bull has survived the many obstacles of being a victim herself, which drives her purpose to advocate for others. Seeing victims of sexual assault, murders, crimes against children, high suicide rates in youth, uninvestigated crimes and the rise of sex trafficking in Indian Country, provoked her to pursue tribal community outreach in 2010. Ms. Grey Bull’s self-determination to promote justice, awareness, healing and prevention inspired her to launch her own nonprofit organization, Not Our Native Children. Ms. Grey Bull serves as the Chair of the Governor’s Arizona Commission of Indian Affairs. She is also a Consultant and Advisor to the Department of Justice; AMBER Alert & AMBER in Indian Country Programs, Southwest Indigenous Women’s Coalition and Tribal Nations. Lynnette strives for the growth of a future where Indigenous population prevail in all the same areas where other ethnicities succeed, while upholding her traditional values.
