Native Americans Ready For Election

June 3, 2008, 6:02 PM by Karla Ramaekers

Native Americans Ready For Election
In their campaigns leading up to today's vote, both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have made an effort to bring up Native American issues. 

Like most Americans, Native Americans are ready for the next election. 

"The change, I guess, it'd be nice to see something different," Kelly Hunter says.

"We've been promised many things by people before this and nothing's happened," Seymour YoungDog says.

Despite broken promises of the past, Kelly Hunter and Seymour YoungDog were two of many on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation who went to the polls today to make their mark on this historic election. 

"This is your chance to put your voice in, here's your chance to make a difference and I hope all my fellow American Indians get the chance to vote today," YoungDog says.

YoungDog says with the lack of affordable healthcare, the lack of high-paying jobs, and corruption within the tribal government, it's now more important than ever that Native Americans are heard. 

"It's very important especially on our reservation because we need change. Big changes," YoungDog says.

And he, like many others on the reservation, hopes that his vote will help make those changes reality.
