2020 in Indian Country: Major milestones


December 30, 2020

No doubt 2020 was rough, but it also brought an Interior nomination, a landmark Supreme Court ruling, a record number of U.S. representatives, an end to long-standing mascots and many other momentous events

What a year, sheesh.

Back in February on a 31-degree day on the Meskwaki Indian Settlement, Rep. Deb Haaland, Laguna and Jemez Pueblos, spoke to about three dozen people at the tribe’s museum.

The New Mexico Democrat had just started her second year as a member of Congress and was visiting Meskwaki to champion her friend and then-presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren in a push to win the Iowa Caucus. The election year had officially begun.

To say a lot has changed since would be so 2020.
