Karen Diver, a citizen of the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa who serves as the Special Assistant to President Barack Obama for Native American Affairs, announces the release of a new White House report that details some of the policy advances of the last eight years:
The Obama Administration has made historic progress over the past eight years in improving the nation-to-nation relationship between the United States and federally recognized Tribes. Together, the Obama Administration and Tribal Nations have accomplished shared goals and achieved milestones that upheld self-governance and self-determination – the foundation for prosperous and resilient tribal nations.

Today, the White House is releasing a report outlining some of the successes of this Administration while working on behalf of Tribes. The report sets a baseline of progress for Tribal Nations to reference in their ongoing work with the federal government, and outlines the priorities that the White House Council on Native American Affairs (WHCNAA) will continue to work on based on Tribal leaders’ recommendations.
