The 2014 White House Tribal Nations Conference will take place on December 3.

Each federally recognized tribe is invited to send a representative to the event. But unlike years past, it will be held at the Capitol Hilton instead of the Interior Department in Washington, D.C., due to renovations at the building.

"This will be the sixth White House Tribal Nations Conference for the Obama Administration, and continues to build upon the President’s commitment to strengthen the government-to-government relationship with Indian Country and to improve the lives of Native Americans," the White House said today.

President Barack Obama has held the conference every year since 2009. Meeting on a regular basis with tribal leaders was one of his campaign promises.

More information will be announced as the event draws closer.
