MADISON- Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa President John D. Johnson Sr. delivered the annual Wisconsin State of the Tribes Address today at the Wisconsin State Capitol. Rep. Robyn Vining (D-Wauwatosa) released the following statement on the State of the Tribes address:

“The State of the Tribes is an honored tradition at the Wisconsin State Capitol, where legislators and judges hear directly from the leaders of the eleven sovereign tribal nations of Wisconsin. This is a real opportunity for us to strengthen our relationship with, to listen, to hear, and to seek to understand our important tribal partners. I appreciate President Johnson’s remarks, and I look forward to working together to build a Wisconsin that respects our earth and the people on it.

“I echo President Johnson’s sentiments that we need equity initiatives at all levels of government to root out systemic racism. He said it best — without security for all, we all face insecurity. Forward together.”

Rep. Vining represents the 14th Assembly District, which includes parts of Brookfield, Wauwatosa, and Milwaukee. For more information, visit Rep. Vining’s website here
