Montana’s Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau spoke at the 2012 Democratic National Convention on Wednesday, taking time in her short speech to give a shout-out to both the Griz and Cats. Juneau’s heritage as a member of the Mandan and Hidatsa tribes as well as her historic position as the first Native American elected to a statewide office¬†featured heavily in the speech.

In the speech Juneau praises Obama for signing the Cobell Settlement, for “passing healthcare for all Americans”, for “making investments to prevent violence against women in native communities” and for “making college more affordable.” To wrap up the speech, Juneau spoke of Obama’s visit to the Crow Reservation.

“It was a proud day in Montana when President Obama visited the Crow Nation and became an adopted Crow tribal member . . . He was given a crow name on that day, it translates to one who helped people throughout the land, that is more than an adopted name, that is at the core of who he is. That is his mission and that’s why this November we will reelect President Barack Obama.”
