The Biden administration released a “progress report” in conjunction with the White House Tribal Nations Summit, being held virtually this week.

The 38-page report was prepared by the domestic policy council at the White House. One of the members of the council is Libby Washburn, a citizen of the Chickasaw Nation who serves as Special Assistant to President Joe Biden for Native Affairs.

“President Biden’s relationship with Native Americans is built on respect for Tribal sovereignty and self-governance, honoring federal trust and treaty responsibilities, and conducting regular, meaningful, and robust consultation with Tribal Nations,” the report reads.

The report provides more details about information contained in a fact sheet about the Tribal Nations Summit. The fact sheet was released on Monday, the first day of the virtual summit.

The summit begins at 11am Eastern. It opens with remarks from President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden.
