WASHINGTON The National Congress of American Indians, NCAI, is hailing the results of the 2012 election, including the re-election of President Barack Obama, as a historic moment for advancing the trust relationship between tribal nations and the federal government.
Protect our Native Women
The National Congress of American Indians, the nation's leading American Indian and Alaska Native advocacy organization, called for leaders in Indian country and in the United States government to seize this moment and advance the nation to nation relationship between tribes and the United States.
“NCAI welcomes a second term for President Obama and his administration; Native American policy advancements in his first term set the groundwork for historic opportunities to move Indian country forward during his second term. We look forward to engaging with the President to achieve even greater things in the next four years,”
said Jefferson Keel, President of the National Congress of American Indians. Keel also serves as the Lt. Governor of the Chickasaw Nation in Oklahoma.
“The opportunity for a historic bipartisan Native policy agenda is very real. Along with our federal partners in Congress and the Obama Administration, tribal nations are prepared to move forward immediately on legislation that works to
free tribal economies,
restore tribal lands,
protect the Indian budget,
improve homeland security and disaster response,
protect our Native women,
boost tribal energy projects,
improve health care services, and
strengthen educational opportunities for Native people.”
