Randall Black Eagle

My name is Randall Black Eagle, I am an enrolled member of the Crow tribe, and for the past five years, I have been living on the Rocky Boy Indian Reservation where my wife resides.

I have 13 years of fire experience working in forestry for the Chippewa Cree Tribal Natural resources department for the past three years as the ARC Map technician.
My love of the field is what draws me to this profession. I have a degree from Stone Child College in Natural Resources. The opportunity to work with ” at-risk youth” strikes close to home for me as a product of the reservation environment. Today, I rely upon my cultural heritage’s ceremonial teachings and incorporate those teachings into my professional life. I am proud to be a part of the INCA team and look forward to working towards a brighter future for tribal youth.
