Native American Financial Services Association Acknowledges Senator Dorgan’s Op-Ed and Service to Indian Country

Recently,
the
Native American Financial Services Association (NAFSA) acknowledged Senator Byron Dorgan’s
Broken Promises’ op-ed, which was published in the
New York Times on July 10. In an article in the Sacramento Bee, NAFSA thanked Senator Dorgan for “his
service to the United States and his outstanding advocacy on matters pertinent
to Native Americans.”

The Native
American Financial Services Association (NAFSA) formed in 2012 to advocate for
Native American sovereign rights and enable tribes to offer responsible online
lending products, along with furthering economic development opportunities in
Indian Country.

Barry
Brandon, Executive Director of NAFSA remarked, “Even after Senator Byron
Dorgan’s retirement in 2011, Indian Country has continually relied on him as an
unwavering alley and a staunch advocate. While it is painful to acknowledge the
problems Indian country continues to face, we thank Senator Dorgan for his
continued work on our behalf, his highlighting the challenges our tribal
governments face to the rest of the country, and his focus on the importance of
economic development to tribal nations.”
