Leaders of the Indian country keep up with the new Senator – Bismarck Tribune

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) – When Democrat Heidi Heitkamp leaves the US Senate, members of the North American Native American community of North America lose a major ally.

Despite their conservative nature and close ties to President Donald Trump, tribal leaders do not write down their successor, Republican Kevin Cramer.

Turtle Mountain Chippewa chairman Jamie Azure says he is open-minded, and Spirit Lake Nation chairperson Myra Pearson says the tribes will "just have to get used to his style."

Cramer repressed Heitkamp's request for re-election. He is following up on his report on Native Issues, which includes the Native American Children's Safety Act 2016 and the Native Youth and Tribal Officer Protection Act this year. He regards himself as a passionate supporter of the sovereignty of the tribes.
