Indian Country's seat at Joe Biden's table
July 29, 2020
The presidential election is 98 days away. It will be an election we have never seen or experienced before all due to COVID-19. The pandemic has changed the usual ways campaigns are handled, there are no public gatherings and even the polling sites will be restricted. It's a challenge to reach Indian Country in any election and now in the age of the coronavirus it's especially challenging.
Clara Pratte, Navajo, was hired as the tribal engagement director for the Joe Biden campaign. She served as the chief of staff for Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye and she led the tribe's D.C. office. Pratte also founded Strongbow Strategies, a firm that handles IT and cyber security support, emergency management among other things.
