Democratic presidential candidates will descend on Iowa next week to do something that Native Americans say doesn’t happen enough: Court their vote.

LeBeau, a 99-year-old registered Democrat, said that’s a change from the past when politicians largely overlooked Native issues. “We’re like a third-world country,” she said. “No one really listens to us.” (AP Photo/Kali Robinson)
