American Indians particularly impacted by government closure

I am a Mandan Hidatsa and Arikara Nation member and wanted to express my concern with the government shutdown and the incredible impact that it has on Native American nations. The U.S. has promised many government services and programs to my people and all the Native people in America and these are essential to the daily lives and general economic well-being of my people and Native people throughout the United States. If the government must be shut down, please at least move Native American government services and programs over to the exempt category so that our people don't have to suffer so tremendously and so that you can honor your promises and responsiblities to us.

Thank you.
