Ms. McDowell has committed over 38 years to tribal government, starting her career as a clerk for the Manpower program in 1975, eventually working her way up to Tribal Council Secretary in 1980. Her interest in tribal politics began with her first tribal council campaign and election in 1981, when she began her first four-year term. She is proud to have served the Council and the Fort Mojave Tribal community for over 38 years. As Fort Mojave Tribal Council Chairperson, Ms. McDowell’s leadership has been instrumental in forging many economic projects for the tribe. Ms. McDowell felt it necessary for the tribe to achieve total tribal self-sufficiency and to exercise its sovereign rights. Her belief and that of the standing council was that it was incumbent of the tribal government to take over all of its operations and infrastructure services on reservation.

Thus began a long process of numerous legal workings and administrative duties to accomplish that goal. The tribe currently provides all utility services on the reservation in three states, California, Arizona and Nevada. The Fort Mojave Indian Tribe maintains one of only eight tribally owned and operated telecommunications companies in the United States. Ms. McDowell has been recognized by many Native American organizations for her leadership and service as President and Board Member of such organizations as the Inter-Tribal Council of Arizona, Arizona Indian Gaming Association, Fort Mojave Telecommunications, National Tribal Telecommunications Association, National Congress of American Indians, 10 Tribes Partnership of the Lower Colorado River, Fort Mojave Tribal Utilities Authority, Council of Energy Resources, Native American Rights Fund and Founding Member of the WEWIN organization “Women Empowering Women for Indian Nations.” Currently, Ms. McDowell serves as Project Manager within the AhaMakav Cultural Society department and oversees a hazardous waste cleanup located at the Pacific Gas & Electric Topock Compressor Station, which is within a known Mojave sacred site area and traditional homeland of the Fort Mojave Indian Tribe. Nora is the proud mother of 3 children and Grandmother to 10 grandchildren. Nora resides on the Fort Mojave Indian Reservation, which is located in the States of California, Arizona and Nevada.
