The President will host the next White House Tribal Nations Summit on December 6 and 7 in Washington, D.C.
Since taking office, the President has prioritized strengthening Nation-to-Nation relationships with Tribal Nations, honoring treaty obligations to Tribal Nations, and advancing Tribal sovereignty and self-determination.
The Tribal Nations Summit represents the President’s commitment to honor the Nation-to-Nation relationships the United States has with Tribal Nations. The Summit brings Tribal leaders and top Administration officials together to address the most important issues facing Tribal communities.
The Summit will also feature new Administration actions that support Tribal communities. This year’s Summit announcements will build on the record of achievements that the President has already delivered on for Indian Country. Through the President’s Investing in America agenda, the Biden-Harris Administration has made record investments to support Tribal Nations and Native communities and has taken a host of actions to address the top concerns of Tribal communities, including executive action to address the crisis of missing and murdered indigenous people, securing more stable advance funding for Indian Health Service, and championing innovative new partnerships with Tribal Nations to co-steward their ancestral lands and waters, including some of our newest National Monuments: Avi Kwa Ame in Nevada, and Baaj Nwaavjo I’tah Kukveni – Ancestral Footprints of the Grand Canyon National Monument in Arizona.
