Northrop wins Warrior Award

American Indian Chamber of Commerce of California Names 2011 Warrior Award RecipientsThe American Indian Chamber of Commerce of California recently named Northrop Grumman Corporation (Northrop) and Rincon Chairman Bo Mazzetti as 2011 Warrior Award recipients. The award is the highest honor that the Chamber bestows annually on a deserving corporation and tribal leader in recognition of their work on behalf of American Indian/Alaska Native business development.

The recipients accepted the awards on November 17 at the 12th Annual Warrior Awards at the Grand California Hotel in the Disney Resort in Anaheim, California. More than 300 people attended to commemorate Northrop and Mazzetti, as well as celebrate the Annual Native American Heritage Month.

While recognizing Northrop with the corporation Warrior award, the Chamber recognized Northrop’s Gloria Pualani and Vicky Harper-Hall for their longtime support of successful economic development in Indian Country.
Comment:  I worked at Northrop, before it was Northrop Grumman, from about 1986 to 1993. I would've said it was totally devoid of any involvement with Indians.

Maybe it was, back then. Now it may have subdivisions with tribal subcontractors, scholarship programs for tribal students, or something like that. Whatever it's doing, congratulations on doing it.
