“Last month, Mary Peltola made history when she became first Native Alaskan and woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives for the Last Frontier State.

When Peltola was sworn in last week, Congress reached a milestone: for the first time in more than two centuries, the House has full U.S. Indigenous representation, according to Rep. Kai Kahele of Hawaii.

"It has taken 233 years for the U.S. Congress to be fully represented by this country’s indigenous peoples," Kahele, the second Native Hawaiian to represent his home state, posted on Twitter alongside a photograph of him, Peltola, and Rep. Sharice Davids of Kansas, a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation. "Tonight, a Native American, a Native Alaskan & a Native Hawaiian are sitting members of the people’s House."

There are now six Indigenous Americans who are representatives in the House.”

Progressive Turnout Project

Progressive Turnout Project Executive Director Alex Morgan released the following statement regarding the Kansas Democratic Primary Election:

“Congratulations to Sharice Davids on last night’s victory in Kansas’ 3rd Congressional District. For more than two months, Progressive Turnout Project has been talking with voters across the district and looks forward to doing everything we can to replace Kevin Yoder on November 6.”

“We’re excited by Sharice’s campaign because we know that she’s going to get up and go to work every day to find solutions that help real people thrive in Kansas and across the country.”

Kevin Yoder’s campaigns have been fueled by special interests and we’ve seen the results in his votes to rip away healthcare from Kansans and provide massive tax cuts for corporations. Fortunately, on November 6, Kansas voters can elect Sharice Davids to truly represent the residents of this state.”

“Now that we have our nominee, Progressive Turnout Project is ready to roll up our sleeves, pound the pavement, and do everything we can to elect Sharice Davids in November.”
