Bill Edwards, Vice-President
The entire Tolani Lake Enterprises family, team, and friends mourn the loss of Bill Edwards, Vice-President, who passed away January 3, 2021. He was integral in establishing food and economic sovereignty programs at TLE that served Navajo, Hopi, and other Native communities. He served as a strategic planner, project director, traditional advisor, and so much more. As our president, Garry Biakeddy, said, "I don't believe Bill ever said no to anybody when asked for his help."
Bill had a long history of entrepreneurial ventures, non-profit management and coordination. He was a former production grower with market experience, and a lifetime gardener. Because of his experience and insight into economic development on Native lands, he was a member of the Navajo Nation Vice-President’s Gardening Advisory Committee.
