Tribal G8

President-elect Obama outlined a number of steps to give the issues facing the Indian community some attention. He has pledged to appoint an American Indian Policy advisor to his senior White House staff.

He has proposed an annual "Tribal G8" meeting of national Tribal leaders to develop an Indian policy agenda. Obama has continuously upheld Tribal sovereignty through support of policies for self-determination and self-governance, and has indicated support for legal protection of sacred places and cultural traditions.
