Office of United States Representative Sharice Davids (D-KS-03)

Representative Sharice Davids released the following statement after the House Natural Resources Committee advanced her bipartisan bill, H.R. 5444 the Truth and Healing Commission on Indian Boarding School Policies Act, through markup:

“I would not be here today if not for the resilience of my ancestors and those who came before me — including my grandparents, who are survivors of federal Indian Boarding Schools. I am glad that my colleagues recognize the importance of investigating what happened to our relatives and working towards a brighter path for the next seven generations. I will continue working across the aisle to gather bipartisan support for this important legislation.”
