Kalyn Free, a member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, is the founder and President of INDN's List. The Indigenous Democratic Network, INDN's List, is the only political organization that recruits, trains, and funds Indian candidates and staff and mobilizes the Indian Vote throughout America. Kalyn has been active in public service in Washington, D.C., her home state of Oklahoma, and nationally for more than 20 years. After graduating from law school, Kalyn was the youngest lawyer ever hired by the United States Department of Justice. During her ten years with DOJ, Kalyn served as Senior Counsel in the Indian Resources Section, where she supervised environmental litigation throughout Indian Country. Her two most notable cases were the filing of the first joint complaint between the United States and Indian Nations in history, with the Puyallups and Muckleshoots in Washington State and the first Safe Drinking Water Act case for secondary contamination of drinking water on the Sac and Fox Reservation in Oklahoma. http://indnslist.org/
