"After much consideration by NCAI’s Administrative Board and Executive Committee, we have decided the most prudent path forward is to conduct this conference in a fully virtual environment," NCAI President Fawn Sharp (Quinault Indian Nation) said in a letter. "While we are disappointed that we are unable to come together in Washington, D.C. during this time, our priority is the health and wellness of Indian Country. In the forthcoming weeks."
