Reed Robinson is an enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe (Sicanju, Lakota). Reed is a 27 year veteran of the National Park Service and is currently the National Park Service (NPS) Tribal Liaison Officer (acting) working directly for the NPS director.
Mr. Robinson’s permanent position is NPS/Midwest Regional (MWR) Tribal Relations & Indian Affairs manager. Reed has served in 9 other park service units including Superintendent of Devils Tower NM (Mato Tipila) and Deputy Superintendent of Badlands NP. In addition to his familiarity of historic preservation, natural resource management, and park leadership/operations Reed lived in 7 other countries as the son of an American diplomat for 16 years. These experiences have provided him a broad peripheral perspective of cultural sensitivity.
The MWR’s office with Reed at the helm is brand new and expects to be instrumental in shaping positive tribal relations across broad, multi-disciplinary areas, and advocating within the NPS the myriad tribal interests and NPS treaty/trust/statutory/etc. responsibilities to American Indians and resource stewardship.
