2021 White House Tribal Nations Summit

Monday, November 15, 2021 11:00 AM - Tuesday, November 16, 2021 5:00 PM (EST)

Description

The White House is excited to announce that the 2021 White House Tribal Nations Summit will officially take place on November 15 and 16 2021. Please note that the dates have changed. This year the Summit will take place virtually.

Register by Friday, November 12, 2021. If you have already summited your registration for the Summit, you do not need to re-register.

The Summit will feature panel discussions and listening sessions with high level Administration officials on Tribal priorities. Your input is highly valued and we ask that you fill out this short questionnaire by Friday, November 5.

President Biden and the Administration look forward to hosting a robust and meaningful dialogue with Tribal leaders on key issues, policy initiatives, and goals for Indian Country. This year they have changed the name from a conference to a summit to reflect the federal government’s Nation-to-Nation relationship with Tribal Nations. The Biden-Harris Administration is deeply committed to honoring their trust and treaty responsibilities to federally recognized Tribal Nations and the Summit provides an opportunity for Tribal leaders to engage directly with officials from the highest levels of the Administration.

Additional details about the Summit are forthcoming. Please be sure to register for the 2021 Tribal Nations Summit by Friday, November 12, 2021.
