Tribal Chairman Reacts To The President's Visit

Posted: Updated:

President Obama will be the third president to visit Indian Country. He'll be on the Standing Rock Reservation Friday. Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault says it's an honor and a blessing to welcome him.

During his visit, the president will speak to tribal council members and young Native Americans about life on the reservation.

"Their willingness to come only demonstrates that they're sincere and compassionate, because they want to hear from our children. They want to hear the trials they face, and they want to find out how do they overcome adversity? They want to know if there is anything that the White House or the administration or the federal government can do to ensure that Indian Country continues to exist and prosper for centuries to come," says Archambault.

The president will also announce the next steps his administration will take to support jobs, education and self-determination in Indian Country
