ABOUT THE EVENT /

THIS IS A NONPARTISAN EVENT

History will be made August 19th and 20th at the Orpheum Theater in Sioux City, with the first-ever presidential election forum focused entirely on the concerns of Native Americans. All major candidates vying for POTUS in 2020 have been invited, including all major Democratic candidates, President Trump and a Republican running against his nomination. Sanders, Castro, Williamson, Bullock, Delaney, Warren, Charles, de Blasio and Klobuchar have accepted the invitation and will answer questions about important issues facing 7 million Native American voters and their families all across the country. 

 

Panelists will consist of tribal leaders, tribal members and Native American youth. Each panel will be moderated by Mark Trahant. Trahant is a member of the Shoshone-Bannock Tribe and editor of Indian Country Today, based in Washington, DC. In addition to the panel, Marcella LeBeau, a member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and a 99-year-old veteran of the U.S. Army Nurse Corps will be on hand to ask each candidate their views on H.R. 3467, the “Remove the Stain Act”. This is an historic legislation recently introduced to rescind the 20 Medals of Honor given to the murderers at the Wounded Knee Massacre.
