Tadd Johnson laughs and says he's at an age where he doesn't mind speaking truth to power.

So when he talked to University of Minnesota president Joan Gabel about the consultation the federal government was required to have with tribes, he didn't pull any punches.  Particularly, he pointed out, with the lack of a "consultation pipeline" between Minnesota's 12 federally-recognized tribes (and people) and the University system.

It's something he hopes to remedy as he begins his new position as the U of M's first senior director of American Indian Tribal Nations Relations.
