President Biden To Host White House Tribal Nations Summit

The White House

WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Biden will host the next White House Tribal Nations Summit on December 6 and 7 in Washington, D.C.

The summit – which is chaired by U.S. Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland, Senior Advisor and Assistant to the President and Director of the White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs Tom Perez, and White House Domestic Policy Advisor Neera Tanden – provides an opportunity for administration and tribal leaders from the 574 federally recognized tribes to meaningfully engage about ways the federal government can invest in and strengthen Native communities, as well as ensure that progress in Indian Country endures for years to come. 

Since taking office, the Biden-Harris administration has prioritized strengthening nation-to-nation relationships, honoring trust and treaty obligations with federally recognized tribes, and advancing tribal sovereignty and self-determination. Through President Biden’s Investing in America agenda, the administration is making historic investments in tribal communities to ensure they have the support and resources they need to thrive.
