Chief Executive Officer


Chief Operations Officer


Clara and Hank have built careers on the concepts of integrity, quality, communication and hard work. While two people could not seem at the outset to be more different their passion for excellence and desire to make an impact led to the team partnering in 2015 to bring their mission of great work and great community impact to fruition. Over the last several years they have worked with tribal governments, private sector clients, and federal clients to improve business processes and provide insight into working effectively in tribal and disadvantaged communities.

Letter From CEO

As I reflect on our progression over the last 8 years, I am extremely proud of how Strongbow Strategies performed as a team and what we accomplished. I started Strongbow Strategies in 2013 with the idea that I could grow a company that focuses on excellent service AND serves Indian Country and tribal communities. I wanted to be policy developer, change maker, and job creator. In 2015 when my good friend and colleague Hank decided to join me in partnership taking all the valuable lessons he acquired working for tribally owned enterprises I knew we could accomplish great things.

We have been able to realize our dream of helping clients across the country improve their business operations. We have also excelled in helping the private sector work effectively with tribal communities and governments demystifying economic development and regulatory processes for the benefit of private sector and tribal communities.

We will continue to strive to wow, challenge and inspire our clients in the years ahead.

We have added to our team over the years and we are currently working with an all Native American team of associates as we make impacts both big and small. We are extremely lucky to have such a talented team.
