Board of Directors

Garry Biakeddy, President

Garry is a local business owner and community leader, advises TLE on the planning process of small business/enterprise development. He advises on cost estimating for projects and TLE’s general operations. His extensive knowledge of running businesses in a rural environment greatly informs project and operational planning.

Since Garry has been with TLE, he has realized that our local Navajo Nation Dine people’s livelihood could use additional education in becoming more self-sufficient in acquiring food, water, and financial empowerment. He values and praises the TLE Team and Warrior Youth in diligently working to make these happen.  Garry’s current expectation is that TLE’s demonstration garden will become a year-round food producing model and that Tolani Lake Enterprises will become more self-sufficient.
