NCAI to Host the 2014 Tribal Nations Legislative Summit & Excecutive Winter Council

Next week, the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) is hosting the 2014 Annual Tribal Nations Legislative Summit and 113th Congress Executive Council. Aimed at connecting Tribal leadership with governmental leadership the event is scheduled for March 11-13, 2014 with most events taking place in the Westin Washington City Center, Washington, DC.

In advance of this meeting, Jodi Gillette, the Senior Policy Advisor for Native American Affairs in the White House Domestic Policy Council, released in a blog post both the Synopsis for the the 2013 Tribal Nations Conference and the 2013 White House Tribal nations Conference Progress Report.

At least 14 members of Congress are scheduled to speak at the event from both sides of the aisle. There are 13 Federal Agency speakers scheduled. Additionally there are 13 tribal consultation events or listening sessions scheduled.  These public forums  give tribal leaders a chance to speak directly to departmental leadership in the federal government.  This is one way in which the governmental departments identify important topics and gather feedback on the issues and their impacts on Indian Country.
