Natives gettin' in the mix

Sweet! The Obama campaign is having a "regular American" or two speak every night, in prime time, at the convention. Here's one slotted for Tuesday night:

Native American educator, David Gipp of North Dakota, has spent more than three decades working towards the development of tribal colleges. Speaking on Tuesday, Gipp is also an enrolled member of the Standing Rock Hunkpapa Lakota (Sioux) Tribe.

There is now a Native American "regular American" speaking at the convention, and Holly Stebing, an Alaska Native (Inupiaq) will be meeting Obama backstage.
