President of the Native America Humane Society
Diana Webster is a California attorney and an enrolled member of the White Earth Band of Ojibwe (Anishinaabe) in Northern Minnesota. After a successful business career with Northwest Airlines for twenty years, Webster went back to school to get her law degree. Upon graduation, she practiced civli litigation in Palos Verdes, California, until 2010 when she began working with tribal courts around the country as a Tribal Courts Specialist with the Tribal Law and Policy Institute. During this time, an encounter with a starving stray dog in Cancun led Webster to become involved part time, then full time in animal protection efforts in Mexico and the US. As president of the Native American
Humane Society, Webster draws on her cultural traditions, education, experience, and passion for helping animals to make tribal communities safer for tribal members and animals.
