The Obamas are due to arrive on the reservation at around 2:40pm Central Time, according to the White House. They will meet with Native youth for a roundtable discussion that is closed to the public and the press.

President Obama will then deliver remarks at the tribe's Cannon Ball Flag Day Celebration in honor of Native veterans. This portion will be webcast at at approximately 3:45 pm.

The Obamas will leave the reservation around 4:10pm and head to the airport in Bismarck. They are due to depart around 5:20pm for Palm Springs, California, according to the White House.
