WASHINGTON (NEXSTAR) — Traesa Keith is the mother of a student who died at the Chemawa Indian School, a federally operated Native American boarding school. 

She said her daughter had one of the biggest hearts. She also said valuable time was lost because the school assumed her daughter’s medical emergency was a student fight.

Oregon representatives Kurt Schrader and Suzanne Bonamici even went to the school.

Bonamici said, “We’re very concerned, that the students do not seem to be getting the support they need to be successful in school.  And that means having a safe campus.”
