Indigenous groups post billboards urging senators to confirm Deb Haaland

Source: The Hill

Indigenous groups are putting pressure on senators with billboards posted in multiple states urging them to confirm Rep. Deb Haaland (D-N.M.) to lead the Interior Department.

The billboards have gone up in West Virginia, Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota, home of Sens. Joe Manchin (D), John Barrasso (R), Steve Daines (R) and Mike Rounds (R), respectively. Daines in particular has been one of Haaland's most vocal opponents.

The black and white billboards show images of Haaland and say "The First People to receive this land, the last to receive the vote" and "Our First Secretary of the Interior, Support Rep. Deb Haaland."

Haaland, a member of the Laguna Pueblo tribe, would be the first Native American Cabinet secretary, and oversee a department with significant responsibilities to the tribes.

Didn't Manchin say he supported her?

1. According to the last census, the indigenous population of W. Virginia is less than 1%.

Bashing Native Americans will be a positive in W. Virginia.

3. Manchin said he would support her AFTER he got criticism for his lack of support for Women of Color.

4. Whaaaaaat

So we are just going to give the whole country to the native Americans.
I bet she builds a wall and tries to kick us poor pasty white Europeans out.
Then she will sell us a bunch of small pox blankets.
Then she will make us march to the desert and take our farms.
Then she will kill all the cows and make us eat gruel.
This is bad real bad. I don't think the native Americans like us.
The Lenni Lenape haunt my woods and they keep scaring me. I think I need a priest.
