Rez to elect prez?

American Indians seeking say in presidential electionsFlexing political muscles in recent elections, an organized American Indian effort now wants a say in presidential elections.

INDN’s List, a moniker for Indigenous Democratic Network, has sought and endorsed American Indian candidates for a host of partisan and non-partisan elections since it was formed in February 2005.

Now, the INDN’s List Education Fund seeks to sponsor the first-ever presidential forum on native issues, called “Prez on the Rez,” in conjunction with an August campaign camp for Indian candidates.
