Resolution honors indigenous women

A resolution honoring indigenous women for their contributions, service and sacrifice has been introduced in the U.S. Senate by Senators Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and Tom Udall, D-NM.

“As we celebrate women across the globe on International Women’s Day, it’s important that the efforts of Alaska Native, American Indian, and Native Hawaiian women and how they helped shape our country is recognized. Alaska Native women have not only played an integral role in leading their communities forward but have also been a key factor in preserving their history, heritage, and culture,” Murkowski said.

“During Women’s History Month, let us reflect on the contributions, the service and the sacrifices of American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian women – enriching their communities and the United States as a whole,” Udall said.

The two senators introduced a similar resolution in 2018, which passed the Senate unanimously.
