If there was ever an effective way to show the adverse
affects of alcohol abuse, it is the "Artists Respond: A People
in Peril" exhibit now appearing at The Museum at Warm
Springs. The show premiered Friday, January 14 and opened
to the public the following day. The show will run through
Curator of the show is Susie Bevins, who was instrumental
in the creation of the exhibit by Native Alaska artists
following the publication of "A People in Peril in the
Anchorage daily News in 1988. Initial reaction to the series
was negative, but Bevins said, the long-term impact has been
positive. There is a definite wave of sobriety hitting Native
villages in Alaska.
The show will be dismantled following the exhibition at
Warm Springs. The exhibit was brought to the Museum by
Warm Springs Tribal Human Resources Branch, Community
Counseling Center, Early Childhood Education and the
Warm Springs Indian Health Service.
"I'm reaching closer to the stars and moon; getting closer to my Creator in
closing my prayers to those who abuse", by Lawrence Ahvakana, is one of

Council appoints Henderson
as Chief Operations Officer
, . ...Tribal Council, on January 3,
signed resolution 8766, which
named Ed Henderson as the tribal
Chief Operations Officer. Henderson
reported to his office the same day.
According to the resolution, "it
has become increasingly more diffi
cult for a single manager to carry out
the constitutional duties and policies
and focus on the major issues and
projects, as well as oversee the day
ttwlay operational duties..." In addi
tion, Ken Smith, secretarytreasurer,
recommended to Council a plan of
reorganization last fall which
estalbished the new COO position.
The COO would manage and over
see the delivery of governmental ser
vices and programs as authorized by
the Tribal Council. Tribal Council
approved this new position on No
vember 24, 1993.
The resolution also states that the
COO position is "established with
overall responsibility for managing
the day-to-day governmental depart
ments and programs."
Other duties will include, but are
not limited to, the enforcement of all
laws and ordinances, operation of all
authorized health, education and hu
man development programs, the op
erations of authorized public works,
natural resource development and
protection programs and the coordi
nation and integration of all programs
within the tribal organization and
with other governments and agen
He will be the direct supervisor of
all general managers and directors of
the tnbal organization.
Henderson does not come to the
job ill-prepared. He received his
Bachelor ot Science degree in boci-
oloey last year from the University
of Oregon. His studies included 49
credit hours of accounting and busi
ness courses. He graduated in the top
ten percent of his class from the US
Army Finance School in Ft. Ben
jamin Harris in Indiana. He nas
worked in the business accounting
field for 1 1 years and he plans to take
his CPA test at the end of this year.
Henderson is a strong believer
that the "organization is here for the
maximum benefit of the people."
Accountability and responsibility are
important to him. In his early 30s,
Henderson believes his age is a "ben
efit. Hopefully I'll bring the hu
manistic side" to business. "I firmly
believe that my experience, and I
hope my personality, education and
military background" are all positive
qualities that will help him do his job
Henderson was, until his appoint
ment, self-employed. He and his
brother Paul owned and operated
Henderson is no longer directly con
nected with the company.
A very basic tenet directs
Henderson's path in business. "Treat
people the way you want to be treated.
It's a good philosophy by which to
