Indian Country politics and public policy

Commentary by Mark Trahant

Working. Native American women running for national office.

Another spreadsheet. (And, yes, please help me complete the picture …)

There has never been an American Indian or Alaska Native woman elected to Congress. By my count: At least eight women have run … Jeanne Givens (Idaho), Ada Deer (Wisconsin), Kalyn Free (Oklahoma), Diane Benson (Alaska), Mary Kim Titla (Arizona, Rep. Wenona Benally (Arizona), Victoria Steele (Arizona) and Denise Juneau (Montana).

Updated to include vice presidential candidates (President of the Senate) Winona LaDuke and LaDonna Harris

Who have I missed? Any thoughts? Working on a graphic and a story. #DisruptIndianCountry

DRAFT / elected Native legislators

A little help, please. I need sharp eyes. I’ve updated my list of Native American legislators and now that sessions are going on I am planning on writing a few pieces.
So … please take a look. Who’s missing? Any other corrections? Tribal affiliations?
Thank you. (I am itching to build a new map)

Note: Fusion tables are cool. There are three tabs. The first is a spread sheet, second is note cards, and tab three is the interactive map. Here is the link:

How much? A history of BIA spending

My goal is to add together all federal programs and build this into a graphic chart of some kind.
