Native American Heritage Month kicks off at the White House

Posted by

November is Native American Heritage Month. As we begin our celebration of the contributions of American Indians and Alaska Natives to our nation, the White House is preparing to host its third White House Tribal Nations Conference.

Yesterday Kimberly Teehee, White House Domestic Policy Council senior policy advisor for Native American affairs, hosted a listening session at the National Congress of American Indians convention to kick off this heritage month and to hear directly from tribal leaders about their priorities for the upcoming conference.

Read more about it in a White House blog post by Teehee, and don't miss President Obama's proclamation in honor of Native American Heritage Month.
