Tribal Sovereignty A Hot Topic At Gathering Of Native American Leaders In Spokane


There’s been a lot of political buzz this week at the mid-year conference of the National Congress of American Indians in Spokane. Tribal leaders say the next president must understand the importance of tribal sovereignty.

Tribal members can vote, but the National Congress of American Indians is non-partisan. That's why NCAI President Brian Cladoosby said issues are more important than personalities.

“It is up to us to educate Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton on the positions that tribes are taking,” Cladoosby said. “And to show not only what we hope them to do for us in the next four or eight years, but to show them all the accomplishments that we have made under president Obama in the last seven years.”
