ANTHONY "TONY" JERRY, Sr
Devoted to his children and his wife, Tony Jerry was a carrier of many feathers which gave him medicine to guide his Káruk people. Tony’s younger years were very tough. Because so few jobs were available to Native people, he had to travel from place to place to seek employment. But in the mid-1980s, he returned to the Quartz Valley Reservation to became Chairman. A strict disciplinarian, Tony was proud of his numerous children, many who inherited his drive and dedicated work ethic. Several of Tony's children are employed by the Káruk tribe.
