The St. Luke's Forum: The Rev. Isaiah Shaneequa Brokenleg
The Rev. Isaiah Shaneequa Brokenleg serves as the Staff Officer for Racial Reconciliation for the presiding bishop. An epidemiologist in her previous career, Brokenleg’s call to priesthood offered a union of her professional and cultural life. She is a member of the Lakota tribe and a Winkte - a sacred healer. As an epidemiologist, Brokenleg traveled to many reservations and native communities throughout the Midwest to develop outreach programs to address health issues and challenges. Her current work draws on many of those same skills and approaches.
