RES on the Hill

RES on the Hill

The New Day Now (NDN) Rally set the stage for two Capitol Hill sessions for lawmakers to discuss with conference attendees the issues important to Indian Country, followed by a reception on top of the Hart Senate Office building overlooking the Washington, DC skyline. From the long list of Congressional attendees from both parties, it’s clear we have strong support on the Hill. We were also honored to have several members attend RES sessions at the Omni Shoreham, including Senate Indian Affairs Committee Chairman John Barrasso (R-Wyoming) and Rep. Todd Rokita (R-Indiana), who spoke about his Tribal Labor Sovereignty Act designed to affirm sovereignty over tribal labor practices. Those attending the Congressional sessions included: Senator Jon Tester (D-Montana); Vice Chairman of Senate Indian Affairs Committee Senator Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-North Dakota) Senator Martin Heinrich (D-New Mexico) Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Oregon) Rep. Dan Benishek (R-Michigan) Rep. Norma Torres (D-California) Check out what some of these members had to say about RES DC… Senator John Barrasso: “There is a lot of work left to do, and today’s hearing is a good start.

Thank you again for this opportunity to speak to you today. I wish you all a wonderful conference.” Senator Jon Tester: “It’s an honor to speak with Indian Country’s business leaders at this year’s Reservation Economic Summit.

The New Day Now Rally Highlights RES D.C.

The New Day Now Rally (NDN) in front of the U.S. Capitol was a huge success, and perhaps the first of its kind in Indian Country. We were joined by Congressman Bennie Thompson (Mississippi), Pamunkey Chief Kevin Brown, Mashpee Wampanoag Chairman Cedric Cromwell, Native dancers, members of the National Center’s Board, and hundreds from across Indian Country to affirm and advance economic development for our people. The rally also served as a kickoff for a jam-packed day on Capitol Hill for conference participants. At the National Center, we are focused on addressing the stumbling blocks facing the growth of the Native American economy. Those issues must be overcome so we can provide a more sustainable and self-sufficient Indian Country for future generations of Native American people. We are committed to living up to our mission that we mean business for Indian Country. The great amount of support we received for the rally affirmed that we are indeed ready for a new day. National Center President and CEO Gary Davis discussed some of the issues facing Indian Country and why it was so important to rally at the Capitol in an op ed published in the DC publication The Hill, as well as several Native American publications....
