The White House has announced that the 2021 White House Tribal Nations Summit will officially take place virtually on November 15 and 16, 2021.

Back in September, the dates were set for the week of November 8, but have changed.

The summit will feature panel discussions and listening sessions with high level administration officials on tribal priorities. 

The summit replaces the tribal nations conference that was held for eight years during the Obama administration’s two terms in office.

The White House released this statement on the upcoming tribal nations summit:

“President Biden and Senior Administration Officials look forward to hosting a robust and meaningful dialogue with Tribal leaders on key issues, policy initiatives, and goals for Indian Country. To better reflect the federal government’s Nation-to-Nation relationship with Tribal Nations, we have changed the name from a conference to a summit. The Biden-Harris Administration is deeply committed to honoring our trust and treaty responsibilities with federally recognized Tribes and the Summit provides an opportunity for Tribal leaders to engage directly with officials from the highest levels of the Administration.”

12 years of Native News

This month, we celebrate our 12th year of delivering Native News to readers throughout Indian Country and beyond. For the past dozen years, we’ve covered the most important news stories that are usually overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the rise of the American Indian Movement (AIM), to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous People (MMIP) and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools.

Our news is free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts. Any contribution — big or small — helps. If you’re in a position to do so, we ask you to consider making a recurring donation of $12 per month to help us remain a force for change in Indian Country and to tell the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked.
