WOMEN WIN PUBLIC OFFICE in RECORD NUMBERS

Women have seen headlines since the  beginning of 2018. 

This year has seen a record number of females vying for political

seats. One group of women is setting out to transform 2018 from

“Year of the Woman” to the “Year of the Native Woman.”  

 

48 Native American women representing 17 states ran

for state and congressional offices. Three of those women ran

for U.S. Congress: Sharice Davids, D-Kansas;

Debra Haaland, D-New Mexico; and Amanda Douglas,   

D-Oklahoma. The three candidates represent the Ho-Chunk,

Laguna Pueblo and Cherokee tribes, respectively.

 

SHARICE DAVIDS WON KANSAS’ DISTRICT # 3

Sharice Davids is a member of the Ho-chunk Nation of

Wisconsin and spent the majority of her life in Kansas. There,

she was raised by her Mom, who also served in the U.S. Army for

20 years. Davids’ political career started after she graduated with

Law degree from Cornell University. Seeks to focus on equity,

and fights for under-served communities. Sharice completed a

year as a White House Fellow, as the administration was

abandoned by Barack Obama to Donald Trump.

Debra Haaland WON ! 

New Democratic leader for New Mexico’s U.S. House District One

the Lieutenant Governor nominee of New Mexico. She  was

Debra was the first Native American Woman in the U.S. to Chair a

State party.  Haaland was also the first Chairwoman elected to the

Laguna Development Corp. Board of Directors, overseeing the

business operations of the second largest tribal gaming enterprise

in New Mexico.  She has worked on many get-out-the-vote efforts,

and volunteered full time for President Barack Obama’s 2008

campaign. Haaland is a single motherwho was raised in a

military family.   She earned her Law degree at the University of

New Mexico School of Law in Albuquerque, N.M.
