WASHINGTON, D.C. - As promised by the Biden administration, the White House Tribal Nations Summit is returning after a four-year absence.

Tribal leaders are being invited to attend the summit, which is set to take place during the week of November 8. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which has impacted American Indians and Alaska Natives at disproportionate rates, the event will be held virtually for the first time.

"President Biden and the Administration look forward to hosting a robust and meaningful dialogue with Tribal leaders on key issues, policy initiatives, and goals for Indian Country," the White House said in an email to tribal leaders on Wednesday morning.
