Representation is a core remedy for invisibility. This notably all-female panel will explore the barriers facing Indigenous women and political office, and the hope and tangible change that comes with piercing the representation ceiling. Representatives from both state and national offices will explore how their presence has impacted the offices they hold, and how, despite their constituency, they are called to represent all of Indian country.

Moderated by Professor Angela R. Riley

Panelists:

Representative Sharice Davids
Representative Ruth Buffalo
Senate Candidate Paulette Jordan
Tribal Advisor Christina Snider
