Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
Margaret Mead

Stone aims to use his lived experience to make impactful and lasting change within his community.

Stone unexpectedly started his career in government and policy. While in that space, he refined his role to focusing on tribal relations and has spent much of his time focusing on creating solutions that address some of the most pressing issues for tribes and the Native community.

“I’ve spent my life living thousands of miles away from my ancestral homelands. Portland and the Pacific Northwest have provided me with community that allows me to call this wonderful place home. It’s important that I find ways to give back to that community.”

Prior to joining Meyer, Stone served as a tutor and community mentor for youth at the Many Nations Academy at the Native American Youth and Family Center. He is currently serving as Chairman of the board for Underscore News, a nonprofit publication focused on reporting issues within Native communities.

Stone joined Meyer in November 2022.
