Native American Issues Subcommittee meets in North Dakota





The Native American Issues Subcommittee at the Department of Justice is meeting this week in Bismarck, North Dakota.

The subcommittee consists of 15 U.S. Attorneys from districts with Indian Country. The group is chaired by Brendan Johnson, the U.S. Attorney from South Dakota. Timothy Purdon, the U.S. Attorney for North Dakota, serves as vice chair.

"By bringing these U.S. Attorneys and other top DOJ officials together with tribal leaders from North Dakota to discuss how we can all work together to improve public safety in tribal communities, we hope to build on the progress being made in Indian Country in North Dakota and around the country," Purdon said in a press release.

The U.S. Attorneys will host a joint meeting with tribal leaders tomorrow. The meeting takes place at the United Tribes Technical College in Bismarck.
