A room full of leaders from more than 300 Tribal Nations on Wednesday whooped and hollered as President Joe Biden took the stage to address them at the White House Tribal Nations Summit in Washington D.C. 

"To all the tribal leaders: thank you," President Biden said on Nov. 30. "Thank you for being here and for your partnership. I made a commitment when I ran for president ... that my administration would prioritize and respect nation-to-nation relationships. I hope our work in the past two years has demonstrated that we're meeting that commitment."

The two-day summit - the first in-person White House Tribal Nations Summit in six years- brings together tribal leaders from across the country for nation-to-nation discussions. On day one, federal government officials, cabinet members, and tribal leaders participated in panel discussions on education and Native languages, mental health, access to capital and economic development, and climate and clean energy.
