Republican Senator John Hoeven is pro-Keystone Pipeline, pro-development and of course, he is non-Native Ancestry. [He is of Dutch and Swedish ancestry.] Somehow I doubt that he will strive to help Native Americans...

If the Republican Senate really wanted really wanted to "empowering tribal economic development" then they wouldn't have supported Donald Trump's Candidacy for President. Trump spent millions trying to block a Native American Casino at a Horse Racing Track​ because he didn't want competition for his "Taj Mahal Casino"...
