In an ideal world a presidential campaign would include American Indian and Alaska Native concerns. But that never happens. But what if a Native American was one of the candidates?
The fourth state to vote in 2016 is Nevada where there are more than thirty reservation communities, urban residents, and a total Native American population of about 1.6 percent. More important, Nevada is a caucus state. So if a large number of Native Americans show up in the right locations, well, all bets are off.
Rep. Tom Cole of Oklahoma, a member of the Chickasaw Tribe, has the credibility to run for president.
