President Richard Nixon signing landmark legislation on Native American sovereignty at the White House,
December 15, 1970 by Oliver F. Atkins

President Richard Nixon dramatically changed the federal government’s Native American policy to support tribal self-determination and cultural restoration. Enforcing the government's obligations to tribes was central to his success. White House and administration officials who worked with Nixon discuss these changes and what it means to the American Indian.

The Archivist of the United States, David Ferriero, will deliver opening remarks.

Cosponsored with the Richard Nixon Foundation and the National Archives.
