Ruth has devoted her education and career to improving the health and lives of North Dakotans.
Ruth Buffalo is a citizen of the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation. She is a public health advocate and mom who has worked to fight a problem that most lawmakers still choose not to give the proper attention to: the trafficking of, and violence against, Indigenous women and girls. She is a member of Fargo’s Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Human Trafficking task force. Buffalo names affordable health care as one of her top priorities for North Dakota, as well as public safety and education equity for all communities. She is running to grab a currently Republican-controlled seat.Support Ruth
