Sanders addresses health care, consultation at forum on Native American issues

August 21, 2019 - 11:59am

At a presidential candidate forum on Native American issues Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) promoted his ongoing themes of environmental protection, climate change and universal health care.

Sanders was the last of the 11 candidates to address the two-day Frank LaMere Native American Presidential Forum in Sioux City Iowa. He also spoke about respecting sovereignty and improving the federal government’s consultation with tribes on projects like oil pipelines.

When asked specifically about health care, Sanders acknowledged the federal government is not living up to its legal obligation to provide health care to Native Americans.

“And I think we all understand the Indian Health Service is not doing anywhere near what it should be doing,” Sanders said. “As somebody who believes absolutely that health care is a human right for the Native American People and for everybody else, we will reform, fundamentally, the Indian Health Service.”

Sanders also called violence against Native women an epidemic and said addressing it will be a high priority if he’s elected president.

Mark Charles, who’s the only Native candidate, spoke extensively about the Doctrine of Discovery. He says he doesn’t want Native voters to support his presidential bid just because he’s a citizen of the Navajo Nation.

“I don’t want them to vote for me just because I’m Native,” Charles said. “I want them to hear my proposals my policies and vote for me because I’m the best person for the job, but I do want to challenge Indian Country. We’ve been disenfranchised for so long we actually have the power to put a Native candidate on the ballot.”

Gloria Grant Gone, an Omaha Tribe member, was impressed with Charles and said she would consider voting for him.

“I like what he had to say,” Grant Gone said. “I like the historical information and he is knowledgeable. I enjoyed that.”

Running as an Independent, Charles has to get on the ballot in all 50 states. He’s hopeful he can make that happen.

Presidential candidates kick off historic forum on Native American issues

August 19, 2019 - 11:41am

Author Marianne Williamson kicked off the Frank LaMere Native American Presidential Forum in Sioux City, Iowa, where tribal leaders, elders and directors of Native organizations questioned four presidential candidates.

Williamson spoke about making amends to Native Americans. She also said, if elected president, she would take down the portrait of Andrew Jackson at the White House.

“You can have just a base level knowledge of American history, which I do, and know of Andrew Jackson’s role in the Trail of Tears,” Williamson said. “It is one of the great shames, the great black marks on the heart and psyche of American history. This is not a president who should be shown the honor of his portrait hanging in the Oval Office.”

Fellow 2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) responded to a question about missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.

“I think of this in two ways. One is the importance of data and the federal government getting serious about collecting data and making that data publicly available, “Warren said. “The other part and go back to the tribal sovereignty and why it is we need the tribal nations on the front lines adequately resourced so they can provide the first line of defense.”

Later, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Montana Governor Steve Bullock took questions. Bullock appeared via video and spoke about promoting health care and Indian child welfare.

In a press conference after the event, Klobuchar said her housing policy addresses Native Americans. In her home state of Minnesota, there are many homeless Native people living in the Twin Cities.

“If we’re really going to move in a big way on this issue housing tax credits, and making it easier for people to afford housing we have to do it together as a country,” she said.

Cheyenne River Sioux Chairman Harold Frazier told Klobuchar flooding on his South Dakota reservation has destroyed aging infrastructure and washed out roads including on the neighboring Standing Rock reservation.

“Two people lost their lives and I’ve seen nothing major coming down for Indian Country as far as infrastructure and I believe the powers in the federal government just don’t care.”

The same question and answer format continues for a total of 11 presidential candidates appearing at the two-day forum.
