For America's Indian nations, an alternative State of the Union


WASHINGTON — On Tuesday night, President Barack Obama delivered his annual State of the Union address from the U.S. Capitol — but 36 hours later, and a few blocks away, a representative of another sovereign nation gave an address on the status of his people.

On Thursday morning, Brian Cladoosby, president of the National Congress of American Indians, delivered the annual address on the State of Indian Nations at D.C.’s Newseum. The NCAI is the oldest and largest organization of sovereign tribes in the country, and the speech is considered an important opportunity for the American Indian government and advocacy community to reflect on what its goals and priorities are for the upcoming year.
