Leading Native America: Byron Mallott September 26, 2016 Discorsi-Based in Denver, Colorado, Discorsi is a podcast created by John C. Ronquillo. “Discorsi,” the Italian word for “discourses” or “talks,” focuses on interviews with individuals who are leading creative, academic, and cultural endeavors, and all sorts of things in between. Byron Mallott grew up in rural Southeast Alaska with dreams of a comfortable life as a commercial fisherman. Instead, he embarked on a career that led him to leadership positions within municipal, state, nonprofit, and corporate arenas. In this episode of Discorsi, we travel to Juneau to listen to Alaska’s 12th Lieutenant Governor talk about his remarkable life in public service and lessons of leadership for and on behalf of his people.
