State Sen. Anastasia Pittman (Dem., Oklahoma City) has been named vice chairman of the National Caucus of Native American State Legislators.
The Oklahoma legislator is a member of the Seminole Nation, as well as the former secretary and past Chairman of the Native American Caucus in Oklahoma.
She currently serves as the chairman of the education committee of the national caucus and previously was vice chairman of the health committee of that organization.
State Sen. Pittman has also served the past four years on the national Quad Caucus, which is a convening of Asian Pacific American, Black, Native American and Hispanic caucuses of state legislators.
“I want to support the Chairman, State Sen. John McCoy from Washington, as well as the goals and objectives of the caucus,” said State Sen. Pittman.
“By creating a ‘gathering of voices,’ we can foster communication among Native American legislators, both past and present.” She went on.
While developing opportunities to support the sustainability of state and tribal relations, we can also promote partnerships, cooperation and dialogue to move our economic and civic engagement efforts forward.”
State Sen. Pittman was elected as vice chairman of the national caucus on Aug. 12 at a meeting held in Chicago, Ill.
