BISMARCK, N.D. — During the past two weekends, U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-North Dakota) stopped by two powwows in her quest for re-election. Last weekend she visited the Turtle Mountain Chippewa Pembina Labor Day Powwow in Belcourt, North Dakota. This weekend she attended the 49th Annual United Tribes Technical International Powwow in Bismarck, North Dakota.
” I’m always excited to have the opportunity to reunite with old friends and celebrate the rich and beautiful culture of North Dakota’s many Native American tribal nations,” says Heitkamp.
“I’ve been a lifelong ally of Native communities in North Dakota and am dedicated to making sure that the heritage of our Native brothers and sisters are both protected and celebrated. I’m deeply proud to remind folks that my first bill as a United States Senator, which was signed into law, was dedicated to helping improve the lives of Native American children by addressing the complex challenges they face – and providing a better path forward so that they have the opportunity to succeed that every American child deserves,” she continued.
