First Native Woman Democrat In N.D. Statehouse Takes Oath In Traditional Dress

 

December 6, 2018



In North Dakota’s state Capitol on Monday, Ruth Buffalo stood in the chambers with her hand raised and made history as the first Native American Democratic woman to be sworn into the state’s legislature.

Standing alongside other newly elected lawmakers during the swearing-in ceremony, Buffalo wore a traditional Native American dress and held an ornate fan made with eagle feathers given to her by her clan brother hours earlier.
