clients interests and believes wholeheartedly in the protection,
promotion, and evolution of the rights of tribal nations and tribal
people. Her journey of fighting for tribal rights began at 8 years old
when she and her younger brother came across two grave robbers
attempting to dredge the river where her ancestors burial grounds had
eroded into due to a recent river shift. They began to assail the men
with stones from the shore, screaming and yelling to draw the attention
of those nearby. They successfully held the men off until law
enforcement arrived and arrested the men. (Mention of this incident can
be found in the Seattle Native American Burke Museum archives.) Autumn's
first solo trial as a licensed attorney was a successful self-defense
case wherein her client defended himself from a two person attack with a
tomahawk the client kept on his wall as art.
