  • McCain supports Native American issues

    Dear Editor,

    As a young enrolled member of the Northern Ute Indian Tribe I was raised on the reservation. I now make my home here in the Grand Junction, CO., area. My family (Dad, Uncle and Grandfather) have been involved and are actual leaders of the Northern Ute Tribe for as long as I can remember. I felt compelled to correct some statements Mr. Clifford Duncan made in an article.

    In the article Mr. Duncan states that Obama would be the better candidate for Native Americans to support because he will be more likely to address Indian issues. Mr. Duncan is only 1 member of over 3,264 enrolled members of the Northern Ute Tribe, and therefore is only representing himself.

    SO who do you support as a candidate.
