Great news!5bd9c2373c00009f020e21f2   ASSOCIATED PRESS Deb Haaland is one of two Native American women who will now serve in Congress. It took only 229 years.

 

“To get a sense of how significant Haaland’s and Davids’ presence in Congress will be, consider that more than 10,000 people have served in the House and more than 1,300 have served in the Senate since the first Congress met in 1789. Not a single one of those people was a Native American woman.”

“Crazy, right?” Haaland told HuffPost in a February interview. “It’s 2018.”
