Former Hoopa Valley Tribal Chairwoman and Momma Bear Project Coordinator
Ryan is honored to received the endorsement of Richard Blake, Chief Judge of the Hoopa Valley Tribe, contractual Chief Judge for the Redding Rancheria, formerly with the Tolowa Dee-ni' Nation Tribal Courts, and is a member of the Hoopa Valley Tribe. He is the President of the National American Indian Court Judges Association and a member of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ).
On May 17, Cal Fire Local 2881 announced that they are endorsing Ryan for 5th District Supervisor. Cal Fire 2881 represents more than 6,800 men and women engaged in firefighting and the protection of our valuable forests and grass-covered watersheds.
Trinidad Rancheria has been the subject of harassment and abuse during the Fifth District Supervisor campaign and unfairly characterized and targeted.

Cher-Ae Heights Indian Community of the Trinidad Rancheria endorses Ryan Sundberg for Humboldt County 5th District Supervisor. Ryan has earned his reputation of “experience, trust, and leadership.” One of Ryan’s strongest qualities is that he does everything with integrity.
Ryan is Humboldt County’s first Native American county supervisor, and one of only three in the State of California. Ryan serves the residents of the 5th District which includes McKinleyville, Trinidad, Orick, Fieldbrook, Willow Creek and Hoopa. California Tribes located within the 5th District include the Trinidad Rancheria, Big Lagoon Rancheria, and Hoopa Valley Tribe. In addition, numerous Native Americans from various Tribes reside within the District.
Ryan has been involved in major projects such as Klamath Dam Removal, Trinity River Restoration, addressing Tribal Government needs, and working with the rural communities on vital programs and services.
“County supervisors have a difficult job. We believe Ryan represents the 5th District with integrity, and as a Native American tribal member he brings an understanding of how tribes and the County can collaborate and partner. For these reasons, we support his efforts for reelection.”
