9. BERNIE SANDERS ON NATIVE AMERICAN RIGHTS

BERNIE SANDERS ON NATIVE AMERICAN RIGHTS
Bernie Sanders respects and values Native Americans and believes the U.S. needs to support and work with our First Americans to improve their standard of living. Bernie supports the right of Native American tribes to self-govern and have sovereign jurisdiction over their lands. He also supports directly acknowledging our continuing history of mistreatment and racism against Native Americans and actively promotes measures to achieve justice for them.

Tribal Sovereignty: Native American tribes should have sovereign control over their lands.

Healthcare: Healthcare for Native Americans should be improved to better address medical needs and improve outcomes.

Acknowledging Racism: The history of gross mistreatment of Native Americans should be brought to and maintained in the publicís attention. Stereotypes and slurs against Native Americans should be discouraged and denounced
