Tanya Fiddler named to Treasury Department advisory board





President Barack Obama has named Tanya M. Fiddler, a member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, to the Community Development Advisory Board at the Treasury Department.

Fiddler is the executive director of Four Bands Community Fund. The organization was designed to help entrepreneurs on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation.

The Community Development Banking and Financial Institutions Act of 1994 requires the president to nominate one advisory board member with "personal experience and specialized expertise in the unique lending and community development issues confronted by Indian tribes on Indian reservations."
