Early in their lives, these twin sisters from the Spirit Lake Nation, Arlene Krulish [left] and Arliss Krulish, promised their father that they would seek a good education. They successfully did so at the University of North Dakota, and they landed meaningful healthcare positions on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation near Devils Lake, North Dakota.
The sisters were the youngest of 13 children born to the late Anton Krulish and Cora Iceman and were raised in Fort Totten, N.D. After graduation from the University of North Dakota, the twins dedicated themselves to careers in the service of others.
Today, Arlene is the Chief Executive Officer at Indian Health Services on the Spirit Lake Health Center, and Arliss is a travel nurse, having previously served Director of Early Childhood Tracking for several years.
