These photographs honor Alan Spoonhunter (1949-2004). Alan established the Environmental Management Office and was the Manager from 1996 to 2004. He took these photographs in the weeks prior to his death as he went about his work on the reservation. They exemplify the mission and philosophy of the Bishop Tribe’s Environmental Management Office. Alan is missed as a community leader who helped start many tribal programs. We remember Alan as being generous with his time and thoughtful with his advice. He touched our lives and the lives of many
people. He will not be forgotten.
