In light of campaigning in Indian Country, here are links on how leading candidates are addressing tribes:
Fmr. Sec. Hillary Clinton
“Growing Together: Hillary Clinton’s Vision for Building a Brighter Future for Native Americans” from from her campaign’s webpage.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT)
“Empowering Tribal Nations” from his campaign’s webpage.
“In Arizona, Sanders woos Native Americans” from the Associated Press and “Bernie Sanders Replaces Stump Speech with Epic Call for Native American Justice in Arizona” from US Uncut.*
*The first article is slightly biased against the Senator but is the AP wire most news outlets reported for the March 17th event. The second article is biased towards Sanders but includes video of the full speech.
Trump has no website dedicated to Native issues, but here are some reported positions:
“Donald Trump and Jeb Bush Find Common Ground on Washington’s Football Team” from the NYT reporting on Trump’s defense of the Washington NFL team’s name.
“The Connecticut Roots Of Trump’s First Big Slur” from the Hartford Currant remembering Trump’s testimony to the House Subcommittee on Native Americans in 1993 concerning Tribal casinos.
