Lawrence Jace Killsback (Voaxaa'e Nestoohe – Screeching Eagle) is President of the Northern Cheyenne Nation in Montana. He is a direct descendant of Chief Dull Knife, who led the tribe’s exodus from Oklahoma and the prison breakout from Fort Robinson, Nebraska on January 9, 1879.

He is former Tribal Health Administrator for the Northern Cheyenne Tribe; former Chairman of the American Indian Health Leaders of Montana and former Chairman of the Committee on Health for the Montana and Wyoming Tribal Leaders Council. He is passionate in his advocacy for American Indian issues related to health care, economic development and tribal sovereignty.
