Obama Establishes White House Council on Native American Affairs

Obama Establishes White House Council on Native American Affairs

President Barack Obama today, June 26, released an executive order that establishes the White House Council on Native American Affairs.

The Order recognizes a government-to-government relationship, a legal, and political relationship with federally recognized tribes. In the Order, Obama addresses the need to work together for a brighter future, while remembering the history of mistreatment and destructive policies that hurt tribal communities.

This order establishes a national policy to ensure that the Federal Government engages in a true and lasting government-to-government relationship with federally recognized tribes in a more coordinated and effective manner, including by better carrying out its trust responsibilities, Obama said in the Order.

The full Executive Order can be read below:
