Tara Houska, Ojibwe, Named Native American Advisor to Bernie Sanders - ICTMN.com: In a Tweet on Tuesday, Sanders lamented that 47-percent of Native American kids live in poverty.

Houska told ICTMN she plans to thrust Native American voices and concerns to the forefront.

“I hope to elevate Native American issues at a high level,” she said. “Too much of America is unaware of the plights our communities face, and we are tired of hearing more of the same from politicians. I look forward to continued and expanded outreach in Indian country. Our voices and our votes matter.”

Houska attended the University of Minnesota with a triple major in Biology, Art History, and American Indian Studies. She holds a law degree from the University of Minnesota Law School.
