Barack Obama And Native Americans Conference On November 5

It has just been announced that President Obama will host a White House meeting on November 5, a year after his election, for native Americans.

Entitled the Tribal Nations Conference, a representative of all 564 federally recognized tribes will be invited to the gathering, which sounds likely to be the biggest conference in size and detail regarding native American issues, in the history of the country.

This is a major step forward, which hopefully will lead to work on matters important to native Americans, since the tendency has been to ignore our smallest minority, which remain by every statistic available, the poorest group in America. It is time for real action and return of dignity to native Americans, so it is expected Obama will go beyond the niceties of the conference and produce major results that will affect the long term future of native Americans.
