Board Member Spotlights
Herminia “Minnie” Frias was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. Minnie was the first of her family to graduate college with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biochemistry in 1999 and a Master of Public Health in 2010, both from the University of Arizona. Minnie loves learning. After graduating, she was proud to work with her nation, the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, as a social worker. From 2002 to 2003, she was one of only three Native Americans selected to participate in the Kaiser Family Foundation Health Policy Fellowship Program. She then spent a year working with Congressman Tom Udall (today Senator Udall) as a congressional fellow, experiencing firsthand the federal policy-making process in Washington, D.C. Her experience in D.C. inspired her to return home and dedicate her life to public service through political advocacy.
Her love of learning has allowed her to successfully adapt to change. Minnie was honored to serve as chairwoman for the Pascua Yaqui Tribe from 2004-2007. Her later work as an administrator for the University of Arizona and executive director for Native Images enabled her to become seasoned in executive management, project management, fundraising, and nonprofit administration. In 2010, she joined the Native Nations Institute (NNI) Leadership, Management and Policy team.
Minnie’s career has been dedicated to serving Indian country. In 2016, she was elected to Tribal Council once again. Minnie currently chairs the Health Oversight Committee and is a member of the Oversight Committee for Education, Social Services, Public Safety, Housing and Economic Development and president of the Pascua Yaqui.
Development Corporation Board. As a lifelong learner and mentor, she believes there are no mistakes, only lessons learned and opportunities for reflection and growth.
