Obama Announces Final White House Tribal Nations Conference

ICTMN Staff
8/9/16

The White House just announced that President Barack Obama will host the 2016 White House Tribal Nations Conference on September 26 in Washington D.C.

This year’s conference will be the eighth and final opportunity for leaders of the 567 federally recognized tribes to express their concerns and issues with the Obama administration.

The conference allows tribal leaders to interact directly with high-level federal government officials and members of the White House Council on Native American Affairs.

Last year Obama unveiled his Generation Indigenous initiative, while department heads shared other key announcements.

One representative from each federally recognized tribe will be able to attend the conference, which looks to build upon the President’s continued commitment to strengthen the government-to-government relationship with Indian country.

I want our resources for education at the university and graduate level to be spent on not screwing up our lives and health and providing benefits for the children of deans, obamas and elites. My money at the university paid for the benefit of some white, black and asians. While I got a travesty and had my education and health screwed up for life where I can't function in society, I paid for other people kids to be president of some club, to do community service projects, to get published and do research, get awards, for athletes and for them to have personal tutors which I didn't get of those things even after they disabled me and undid my education. How does any of that stuff benefit me? I got crap on toast. I didn't get into graduate program or a job. I want my fancy degree and high paying job where I can basically do nothing; I want other people to pay for it and they can get crap on toast. They can go to a school that acts completely against their interest and have their resources and abilities pissed away in life since my money paid for asians and other rich pieces of crap to have an ideal education.
