 Chief Mark M. Gould
Vice President NAAC

Mark “Quiet Hawk” Gould is known among his people, the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Indian Tribe of New Jersey, as a leader who has worked tirelessly on their behalf since the 1970s, when he was part of a core group of tribal citizens who launched a modern-day re-organization of the ancient tribe.

A pragmatist known for his dedication and energy, Chief Gould has been a longtime advocate for improving the economic and educational opportunities for tribal citizens. He believes deeply in preserving the tribe’s traditional culture, customs, and values, and is especially interested in working with Elders and youth.

He initiated the incorporation of the tribe as a nonprofit entity under the laws of the State of New Jersey, a step which was finalized in 1978. Also that year, he became the first elected Tribal Chairman under the modern-day structure of the tribe. Another significant milestone occurred in 1982, when the tribe earned State Recognition.

He served as the leader of the movement to form the American Indian Council of New Jersey, and was elected as that organization’s first Chairman. He initiated the introduction of the Senate Bill calling for the creation of the Commission of Indian Affairs for the State of New Jersey, which was signed into law in 1995. He helped to create a Confederation among Lenape Tribes in the U.S. and Canada.

Chief Gould has represented the tribe on many occasions, including at the historic meeting in Washington, D.C. between all Tribes in the Nation and President William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton, and the opening of the Smithsonian’s Museum of the American Indian, in 2004.

In 1994, he was chosen by Governor Christie Whitman as a member of the New Jersey Commission on National Service. He received the Thurgood Marshall Humanitarian Award from the Cumberland County, N.J., Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in April 1996. As the recipient of that award, he was recognized by the Board of Chosen Freeholders of Cumberland County; by U.S. Congressman Frank LoBiondo; and U.S. Senator Frank R. Lautenberg. In 2001, he was honored by the Committee on Native American Ministries of the Greater New Jersey Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Professionally, he is a trained carpenter who has owned his own contracting business. Since 2000, He is currently the Vice President and Weatherization Manager for Native American Advancement Corp. since 2009 and has expended over 10 million dollars of services to needy families. He is also Deputy Chief Officer of Turtle Associates, a construction company owned by the tribe.

A 1960 graduate of Bridgeton (N.J.) High School, he attended Cumberland County College, Atlantic Community College, and Gloucester County College.
