President Barack Obama issues proclamation for Native American Heritage Month


With his term coming to a close, President Barack Obama has issued his last proclamation for Native American Heritage Month.

In the proclamation, Obama acknowledged that America's history has been marked by "too many unfortunate chapters of pain and tragedy, discrimination and injustice." But he said his administration has been working to create a better future for indigenous nations and their youth.

"During National Native American Heritage Month, we pledge to maintain the meaningful partnerships we have with tribal nations, and we renew our commitment to our nation-to-nation relationships as we seek to give all our children the future they deserve," Obama wrote in the proclamation.
