Secretary of the Interior Visits North Dakota

Posted: Updated:
It's pretty amazing to be able to say the President and First Lady made a trip to our state yesterday, but get this...within just 24 hours another political-big-hitter made an appearance in North Dakota. 

Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell spoke with veterans at the Native American Veterans Summit at United Tribes Technical College this afternoon. The Summit brought together leaders from Indian Country, the veterans community, and top government officials. The purpose was to connect Native American Veterans with the resources, support, and benefits. 
"Of all of the groups within the United States, Native Americans serve in higher percentages than any other racial or ethnic group in this country," says Secretary of the Interior, Sally Jewell. "They have always served their country and always served their country with distinction. Our Native American vets often times come from very difficult circumstances, and yet they still step up and serve in the military, and they're tremendously proud of that service." 
She says Native American code talkers were critically important during World War Two. Senior Policy Advisor for Native American Affairs Jodi Gillette was also in attendance.
