Susan Alleman

Beyond her deeply felt and respected professional investments, Susan loves with her whole being

Susan Alleman’s commitment to serving as a leading force in Nebraskans for Peace for decades, and more recently, as Director for Intertribal Spiritual Lodges, a non-profit her late partner, Leo Yankton, founded, reveal a steadfast and loving resolve to advance human rights and justice work in Nebraska.

Beyond her deeply felt and respected professional investments, Susan loves with her whole being. Those whose lives are touched by this superpower know how precious and rare Susan’s goodness and love are. It is a subtle but no less powerful gift that softens, connects, and transforms.

Our leadership co-op can’t wait to collaborate with Susan in 2023, as she approaches ideas, life in general, with mission-driven purpose, thoughtful and reliable resolve, and integrity. Her energy is life! Susan easily envisions the possible—will offer an invaluable lens as SIFN continues working on cross-institutional projects and deepening of trusted relationships.

Already, Susan has immersed in SIFN-sponsored wellness retreats, adult education programming featuring rematriation and uplifting indigenous women’s voices and causes, and volunteering her catering and serving support at the Malcolm X Hall of Fame Celebration Event. These few glimpses reveal someone highly accustomed to saying, “How can I get involved? How can I help?” in ways that advance her commitment to lifelong learning and servanthood leadership. Further, her uplifting and genuine essence clearly reveal Susan is a woman dedicated to supporting other women.
