Day 1 takeaways from tribal nations summit
November 16, 2021
The White House held its tribal nations summit Monday for the first time in five years. The two-day event ends Tuesday.
Tribal leaders from the 574 federally recognized tribes were invited to participate in the virtual event to discuss how the federal government can invest in and continue to strengthen the nation-to-nation relationship and ensure progress in Indian Country.
The summit began a little behind schedule with Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, Laguna Pueblo, stepping out in royal blue moccasins -- matching her blue suit. Sunday was the start of Rock Your Mocs week.
