President Barack Obama and his administration have a couple of announcements for tribal leaders or representatives looking to attend the 2016 White House Tribal Nations Conference on September 27. Deadline for registering to attend has been extended and meetings with the White House Council on Native American Affairs have been added.

Mellon Auditorium, 1301 Constitution Ave. NW, Washington, D.C., with President Obama, cabinet members and senior administration officials scheduled to attend.

Over the first seven years of Obama’s run as Commander and Chief, he’s established the Tribal Nations Conference as an opportunity to strengthen the nation-to-nation relationship while addressing and celebrating accomplishments and progress being made throughout Indian country.

Following the Monday conference, there will be meetings throughout the day Tuesday, September 27, at the U.S. Department of the Interior, that the White House Council on Native American Affairs will host for tribal leaders.

We have to watch out for history repeating itself. Likely a similar trap the Gothic refugees faced when the Roman administrators attempted to assassinate their leaders to prevent an uprising when the administrators were treating the goths harshly leading to the battle of Adrianople. Selling our children into slavery to be able to sustain ourselves with a dog carcass is similar to the current situation. They're trying to prevent us from working or reproducing as our number of births of halved so that we're not replacing our numbers. I mean they don't have to cut us down with swords. This nation has chemical and biological weapons so that people that go to these meetings there get leukemia from Po-210 or are infected with a herpes like virus that causes crippling intractable pain for the rest of their lives. When we try to get an education no matter how much we pay, we're are treated like scum and left crippled and unable to function in society.
