Thursday, August 22, 2019 – Highlights from the presidential candidate forum on Native issues


August 23, 2019

Native issues are front and center at the Frank LaMere Native American Presidential Forum in Sioux City, Iowa. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Bernie Sanders, former HUD secretary Julián Castro and Mark Charles (Diné) are among the candidates scheduled to face a panel of Native questioners and give their views on Native-specific issues. In other debates, candidates rarely express their perspective on topics like the Trust Responsibility, treaty obligations, and tribal consultation. It’s an unprecedented opportunity to hear what the candidates offer the substantial Native American voting population. We’ll have some of the highlights from the forum and hear perspective about the event.

Four Directions is a major organizer for the forum. You can watch video of the forum here.
