Elizabeth Warren, in a speech before Native Americans, leans into her mother's Native heritage, and makes a call for the US government to better support Native communities
Read the prepared text of the speech Senator Elizabeth Warren gave to Native Americans on Wednesday. Thank you for having me here today. I want to start by thanking Chairwoman Andrews-Maltais for that introduction. It has been an honor to work with, to learn from, and to represent the tribes in my home state of Massachusetts, the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head — the Aquinnah — and the Mashpee Wampanoag. I also want to thank President Jefferson Keel, and everyone at the National Congress of American Indians. For over 70 years, you’ve championed the rights and dignity of First Americans
