Kalyn Free - Native American Leader and Super-Delegate Endorses Obama

Kalyn Free, member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and founder and President of INDN's List, has endorsed Senator Barack Obama.

As a member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, I am proud of what it means to be an American Indian. I am proud Barack Obama is committed to our unique issues and willing to tackle our toughest problems, from historical inequities and injustices to contemporary issues, like protection of our right to tribal self-determination, access to health care for our elders, and education for our children. Despite the threats that have faced our culture and our people, hope has lifted Indian people through the most difficult times. Because we remain connected to our past, our culture and our communities, we never gave up that hope.
May be this has something do to with why Kalyn has reached past Hillary. Hmmm. The Clintons dissing Native Americans. Sound familiar? And people think Hillary's "go-white and right" strategy is simply a tactical response to Obama's surge.
