Living in Montana, you’re never too far from Indian Country. But I live closer than most. Right down the road from my farm in Big Sandy is the Rocky Boys Reservation, home to the Chippewa-Cree Tribe.
Standing up for Indian Country is a responsibility I never take lightly. That’s why, earlier this month, I stepped forward to become the chairman of the U.S. Senate’s Indian Affairs Committee.
Leading the Indian Affairs Committee will give me new opportunities to work with tribes to improve the quality of life for Montana’s – and America’s – Indian Country.
