Samuel “Bonnie” Deere

Tribal Town: Alabama Quassarte

Ceremonial Ground: Alabama Quassarte, but raised at Nuyaka

Clan: Nokose

My name is Samuel Deere, but most know me by the nickname Bonnie. I’m currently the Director of Social Services for Alabama Quassarte (AQ) Tribal Town. I am a lifelong area resident of Okemah (Okfuskee District) who grew up in the Nuyaka community and went to school in Weleetka. After attending some college and working in various positions, I returned to Okemah because there is no other place I would rather live and work to be with family and friends. After serving on the MCN commission on Indian Child Welfare and my various community involvement, I realized that I’d like to be able to do more for the Mvskoke people. I was raised to always help people, as a representative, I will listen to the voices of my community and fulfill the goals of our people through hard work, persistence, and involvement. To me, running for office is about serving and ensuring that every Mvskoke counts. Being your National Council Rep comes with a lot of responsibility and I promise to always do my best to represent our Nation and its people.

I grew up known as "Bonnie" in the Nuyaka area, Okfuskee County, Oklahoma. The firstborn son of Phillip Deere, (a well-known traditional medicine man and ordained minister).

I was raised with strong Mvskoke cultural and traditional (to help people) teachings, with the Mvskoke language as my first language.
