Tomorrow, President Obama will host representatives invited from 566 American Indian and Alaska Native tribes at the 2013 White House Tribal Nations Conference. This year marks the 5th Conference and reinforces our commitment to a strong government-to-government relationship with Tribal Leadership.
Earlier this year, the President established the White House Council on Native American Affairs to promote and sustain prosperous and resilient Tribal nations. Chair of this Council, Secretary Jewell of the Department of the Interior, will lead several Cabinet officials in direct discussions with tribal leaders during the Conference.
