Native Americans

New Mexico’s strength is rooted in its diversity, its families, and its history, including the rich traditions of its Native American communities.

Democrats are proud to have members of the Native American community as active members of our party. We are working with American Indians throughout New Mexico to expand the roles they play in the state and county party organizations, and we fully support Native American participation in the electoral process, not just as voters but also as candidates. We are working to promote economic growth, improve educational opportunities, ensure clean water, and cultivate tribal energy. Most important, Democrats are committed to the Native American community by taking care of those who need a helping hand and giving a voice to those who have not had representation.

Democrats stand for the issues important to American Indians. Tribal governments know what it means to meet the needs of underserved citizens and to provide care and services to those less fortunate.
