Biography of Justice Fox, Great Plains Regional Representative

Justice Fox is an enrolled member of the Three Affiliated Tribes; Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara. Justice was elected as the Great Plains Regional Representative for the National UNITY Executive Committee. When Justice isn’t doing UNITY business; he is a 18 year old student who attends Haskell Indian Nations University, living life to the fullest by pursuing Business Management. Learning something new, helping his family, working out, and helping his community are just some of the hobbies he enjoys.
For as long as Justice can remember; the core values Integrity, Loyalty, Gratitude, Honesty, and Perseverance have been taught and engraved into him by his family to be the best version of him he can be. Using these values he attempts to serve the people but mostly the Native youth of his community and outside of his community so that they can be more successful than him.With the great opportunity Justice has been given to be the Great Plains Regional Representative, he hopes to grow the youth involvement within the region to make the Great Plains, Greater. He is beyond excited to work with the other representatives to empower the youth and make their voices be heard from all over Native Country. His dream is for a future where the Native youth can come for what their ancestors were denied.
