Resolution Introduced to Honor Success of Indigenous Women Across the Country

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Senator Lisa Murkowski, along with Senator Tom Udall of New Mexico, introduced a resolution to honor the success of indigenous women across the country.

In a press release Senator Murkowski said, "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."
