Condensed by Native Village
President Barack Obama will
host the White House Tribal Nations Conference on Wednesday,
December 5, at the US Department of the Interior. This will
be the President's fourth White House Tribal Nations
Conference as he continues his efforts to strengthen government to
government relations with Indian country.
White House Tribal Nations Conference invites leaders
from the 566 federally recognized tribes to
interact directly with the President and his highest-level
Each tribe is invited to send one
representative to the conference.
Last year, President Obama made these remarks at the third
White House Tribal National Conference:
"So this new relationship represents a major step forward.
It is change. But I promised even more than that. I told
you that as President, I would work with you to tackle the
most difficult problems facing Native American families.
And that's exactly what we've done. We passed the Tribal
Law and Order Act, and began making Indian Country a safer
place to live. We permanently authorized the Indian Health
Care Improvement Act, and made quality health care
accessible to more Native Americans."
