| I know you think this is a joke, but I am curious to see if Elizabeth Warren, as a Native American Indian (specifically Cherokee and Delaware Indian) will join the US Senate Committee on Indian Affairs.
The voters of Massachusetts have decided that she is qualified to be a US Senator, and I think it is reasonable to use her personal relationship with the Cherokee people to better our response to Indian Affairs.
From the US Senate Committee website:
The Committee has jurisdiction to study the unique problems of American Indian, Native Hawaiian, and Alaska Native peoples and to propose legislation to alleviate these difficulties. These issues include, but are not limited to, Indian education, economic development, land management, trust responsibilities, health care, and claims against the United States. Additionally, all legislation proposed by Members of the Senate that specifically pertains to American Indians, Native Hawaiians, or Alaska Natives is under the jurisdiction of the Committee.
This is perfect for Elizabeth Warren as she is familiar with the long painful history of being a minority woman in a hateful world. And maybe she can bring her photo albums full of family pictures to Washington to share with the other people of Indian ancestry? Finally, she will get invited to lunch and find others like her.
Papaw will be so proud of Elizabeth and her cheekbones....
