Group seeks to put more Indians in public office


Former Congressional candidate and Justice Department attorney Kalyn Free is launching a new group aimed at putting more Indians in public office.

The Indigenous Democratic Network, or INDN's List, will make its debut on February 28 at a reception in Washington, D.C. Free, a member of the Choctaw Nation, plans to run the group from Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Last fall, Free sought the Democratic nomination for the Congressional district with the highest percentage of Native Americans in the country.
