FIRST NATIVE AMERICAN WOMEN ELECTED IN US CONGRESS

FIRST NATIVE AMERICAN WOMEN ELECTED IN US CONGRESS. U.S. Democratic Congressional candidate Deb Haaland, who become the first Native American woman in the U.S. House of Representatives, hugs Dottie Tiger at a Native Vote Celebration on midterm elections night in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Nov 7, 2018. Deb Haaland made history on by becoming one of the first Native American woman elected to Congress. Haaland, a member of the Pueblo of Laguna and the former chair of the New Mexico state Democratic Party, won New Mexico's blue-leaning First Congressional District on Tuesday night. She joins Kansas Democrat Sharice Davids; they are the first two Native American women going to Congress. The two women will join the ranks of just two more Native American Congress members: Republican Reps. Markwayne Mullin and Tom Cole, both of Oklahoma. Photo courtesy Agencies
