White House to host virtual tribal nations summit

Leaders of tribal governments and the federal government are slated to meet for a virtual discussion in November.
The 2021 White House Tribal Nations Summit will occur the week of Nov. 8. The White House said specific dates and times will be forthcoming.

“President Biden and the Administration look forward to hosting a robust and meaningful dialogue with tribal leaders on key issues, policy initiatives, and goals for Indian Country,” an email from the White House stated.

The name of the event has changed from a conference to a summit, which, according to the White House, was done to reflect its nation-to-nation relationship with tribal nations.

According to a White House press release this spring, the purpose of the summit “is to provide an opportunity for the leaders from the 574 federally recognized Tribal Nations to have an opportunity to interact directly with the President and representatives from the highest levels of the Administration.”
