2017 AMERINDRisk & National American Indian Housing Council

Keynote Speaker: Chance Lee Rush

is an enrolled member of the Three Affiliated Tribes (Hidatsa), of North Dakota

​Originating from the Northern Plains and from New Town, ND with an Oklahoma upbringing. Chance currently resides in Tulsa with his wife Tyler English-Rush and their children. His foundation was established by his God given ability as a runner and his faith in God. His vision was created in a dorm room in 1998 while attending Haskell Indian Nations University and his outreach was established out of a small room on Hope Avenue in El Reno, OK.

Chance learned early that he could use his athletic talents as a means to accomplish great things. He developed incredible drive and discipline to overcome all obstacles that stood in his way. His hard work opened many doors for him. He ran a successful college career and most importantly, ultimately earned his degree. Today, he serves as a consultant to tribes and organizations across the country in reference to business, community outreach, staff trainings, and curriculum development. Chance knew he had experienced some great things and learned many valuable lessons along the way. His passion for strengthening Native communities combined with his experiences led him to the development of Cloudboy Consulting.
