01/26/2016 – native american youth summit press conference
The 8th Annual White House Tribal Nations Conference will take place today at the White House, bringing together representatives from federally recognized tribes in Washington, DC. The President and members of his Cabinet will speak about a variety of topics that are important to tribal leaders, with a focus on how the federal government will continue to improve the nation-to-nation relationship and ensure that progress in Indian Country is sustained for years to come.
The Tribal Nations Conference fulfills a commitment made by President Obama during a visit to the Crow Nation in Montana in May 2008, when he promised to hold an annual meeting with tribal leaders to ensure that tribal nations have a voice in important community decisions. This year’s Conference, the President’s eighth and final of his presidency, celebrates his Administration’s historic success in strengthening the nation-to-nation relationship and building a more prosperous and resilient Indian Country.
In addition to today’s Conference, the second annual White House Tribal Youth Gathering, as part of the Generation Indigenous (Gen-I) initiative, will be held on September 27, 2016. Around 100 Native youth leaders will attend the conference, where they will engage in breakout sessions, panels, and youth-specific programming alongside tribal leaders and senior federal leaders. Thousands of American Indian and Alaska Native youth have organized since the President introduced Gen-I in 2014 to meet the most urgent needs of their communities. Gen-I has assisted in the creation of a new generation of tribal leaders and improved the lives of Native youth through youth participation and strategic investments and policies.
