Observercast 45: A Unique Opportunity To Tell A Different Story

As home to 39 federally recognized tribal nations, Oklahoma knows well the cultural, economic and political power of Native America – a fact the rest of the U.S. started to learn this election cycle when Navajo voters not only propelled Democrat Joe Biden to victory in historically-Republican Arizona, but also when Native voters helped send a record number of Native Americans to Congress.

For our special Thanksgiving week Observercast – Episode 45: A Unique Opportunity To Tell A Different Story – we invited former Osage Nation Chief Jim Gray, who played an integral role in President-elect Joe Biden’s Arizona success, and Oklahoma’s Democratic National Committeewoman Kalyn Free, a Choctaw Nation member, to discuss the growing political clout of America’s indigenous peoples.
