Two Jobs Well Done

I could not let this election pass without a word on two good friends and the jobs they have done over the past two years.  Wizipan Garriott (Sicangu Lakota) and Nicole Willis (Cayuse, Yakama, Nez Perce, Oglala Lakota) have been heading up Barack Obama’s Native Vote Operation since 2006.  They have traveled the country and worked countless hours to turn out Native voters for Senator Obama’s campaign.  They were with Senator Obama long before his victory was a sure thing – way back in 2006 when Hilary Clinton was still the “inevitable” Democratic Nominee.  Their efforts have helped Barack Obama generate unprecedented enthusiasm in Indian Country for the Presidential race, and just may make the difference in several key states.  Regardless of the outcome of today’s election, Wizi and Nicole deserve great applause (and rest) for their efforts.  Miigwetch!
