Continuing the Progress in Tribal Communities Jodi Gillette

Over the past four years, through tribal consultation and the White House Tribal Nations Conferences, President Obama and his Administration have worked to ensure that tribal leaders are directly involved in setting policy priorities. Today, President Obama is hosting the 2012 White House Tribal Nations Conference at the Department of Interior.
This conference continues to build upon the President's commitment to strengthen the government to government relationship with Indian Country, by providing invited leaders from the 566 federally recognized tribes the opportunity to interact directly with the President and representatives from the highest levels of his Administration. In conjunction with today's event, the White House released a report, Continuing the Progress in Tribal Communities, that examines the President's agenda and how this Administration, by working together with tribes, has made a difference for American Indians and Alaska Natives.
