On October 20, President Barack Obama announced the 2014 Tribal Nations Conference via an official press release.

This December 3rd event will mark the sixth White House Tribal Nations Conference held under the Obama Administration. Selected representatives from each of the 566 federally recognized Native American tribes will meet at Washington D.C.’s Capital Hilton hotel to discuss relevant issues with President Obama and members of the White House Council on Native American Affairs.

According to the announcement, Obama strives to “strengthen the government-to-government relationship with Indian country and to improve the lives of Native Americans.”

In June, the President paid a visit to North Dakota’s Standing Rock Indian Reservation during the annual Cannon Ball Flag Day Celebration. Obama’s appearance stands as the first presidential visit to a reservation since Clinton’s in 1999 and the third presidential visit to a reservation in all of our nation’s history.
