HELENA, MONTANA – Respected American Indian journalist Mark Trahant from TrahantReports.com is covering the 2016 elections. His goal is to provide videos of the nine American Indians who are running for Congress this year.
In the following video, Denise Juneau is featured. Juneau is running for the Congressional seat in Montana as a Democrat.
Juneau is an enrolled member of the Mandan Hidatsa Tribes and a descendant of the Blackfeet Tribe. She is the first American Indian woman in Montana to ever be elected to a statewide office – serving as the state’s Superintendent of Public Instruction since 2009 and winning re-election in 2012. As Superintendent, she has worked to strengthen the state’s public schools, boost graduation rates to historic levels, invest in Montana’s economy and job growth, and help make sure that the state’s public lands remain public.
