     Stevey Seymour

                Colville Business Council

                Culture Committee Chairwoman

Councilwoman-elect Stevey Seymour is currently serving her first term with the Colville Business Council as the youngest elected councilwoman in Colville Tribal History.  Justly chosen to lead the Colville Tribes’ cultural agenda, Councilwoman Seymour chairs the Business Councils’ culture committee, a position formerly held by her step father Jim Boyd.  Among her top priorities and interests is the revitalization of both language and tradition for all twelve bands of the Confederated Tribes of Colville.

As the former president and later member at large, Councilwoman Seymour has worked tirelessly alongside her mother Shelly Boyd at the Salish School of Spokane where the mission is dedicated to creating a vibrant community of fluent speakers of Interior Salish languages- a responsibility ignited at Eastern Washington University where both studied.

Councilwoman Seymour studied sociology at Eastern Washington University minoring in Native Studies and Salish Language. She is a member of the snʔayckstx band, a trans boundary tribe located on the Colville Indian Reservation and represents the Tribes interest on numerous panels, boards, and organizations.
