White House Tribal Nations Conference Progress Report Released
The White House has released a Progress Report detailing the actions and policies that have emerged from the Tribal Nations conference meetings conducted beginnning in 2010. In his addresses relating to the conferences, President Obama made clear: “What matters far more than words—what matters far more than any resolution or declaration—are actions to match those words.” The White House report states:
The Administration’s commitment to that standard of action is reflected in the many federal policies and programs discussed throughout this report that are being implemented by federal agencies in response to concerns raised by American Indians and Alaska Natives. These policies are focused on healthcare, education, public safety and economic development for American Indian and Alaska Native communities and protecting tribal lands and the environment.
