Tribal leaders get Joe Biden's attention

Some 300 tribal leaders are in the nation’s capital for the 2022 White House Tribal Nations Summit


December 1, 2022

WASHINGTON — The halls of the Department of the Interior were abuzz with conversations and laughter before the beginning of the 10th annual White House Tribal Nations Summit, and the first in-person one since 2016 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the Yates Auditorium, five flag bearers wearing jingle dresses were walking slowly back from the stage in an attempt to keep their dresses from making too much noise as a panel discussion was ongoing. It did little to keep the sound of the metal military tags, in replace of jingle cones, from echoing in the room.

The group smiled and laughed. One even mouthing that their dresses were loud and ended with a smile.
