On The Passing Of The
Honorable Dr. Clinton M. Pattea
Release Date: July 6, 2013
Fort McDowell, AZ – It is with great sadness that the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation announces the passing of Tribal President Dr. Clinton M. Pattea. Dr. Pattea was born, raised, and died in his beloved homeland of Fort McDowell in the early morning of July 5th, 2013. Clinton Pattea, whose Indian name in Yavapai is Diss’-Diss’ah, devoted much of his life’s work serving the Fort McDowell Yavapai people, including his 50 years in Tribal office. He was centrally involved in the Nation’s defining events for over 60 years. While his life has come to an end, his visionary leadership endures in the promising futures of his People. “He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. But, we at Fort McDowell will continue in his legacy of promoting education, preserving our native language, and maintaining our Tribal sovereignty and self-reliance,” Vice President Bernadine Burnette stated.
