Why No One Is Talking About The native American Vote In 2020
The 5 million Americans that 2020 candidates refuse to talk about
Once again, Native Americans are left out of the election conversation.
This Sunday, Democratic candidates Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders will duke it out on the debate stage, likely over the differences in their health care plans, economic strategies, and the proper response to Covid-19 .
But there is one thing we won’t hear about — the 5 million people whose ancestors called this land home before there was a president of the United States. We won’t hear about the 574 federally recognized tribal nations and their citizens. Nor will we hear about the plague of missing and murdered indigenous women . When candidates list out other minorities, like Black or Latino voters, my people won’t be mentioned.
