      Remarks by the President at Tribal Nations Conference

      Mellon Auditorium
      Washington, D.C.

      3:52 P.M. EDT

      THE PRESIDENT: Hello, everybody. Thank you. Thank you. (Applause.) Welcome to the Eighth White House Tribal Nations Conference. And what an amazing honor, and what a kind gesture for the honor song and the blanket and the hat. I have to say that I’m very glad that you also have a blanket for Michelle so she doesn’t steal mine. (Laughter.) She would, too. I’m just saying. (Laughter.) But that was very moving, and is a reminder of the great friendships that we’ve developed over the last eight years.

      I have a couple of people here who I want to acknowledge for their longstanding commitment to Indian Country. Sally Jewell, our Secretary of the Interior. (Applause.) Brian Cladoosby, President of the National Congress of American Indians. (Applause.) We’re honored to have here Thomas Begay, one of the last surviving Navajo Code Talkers. (Applause.) And we have some just amazing young people here that I had a chance to meet earlier, including those who are participating in Generation Indigenous, so please give our young people a big round of applause. We’re so proud of them. (Applause.)

      So today, the most important thing I want to say is thank you. After almost eight years as your President, I have been so privileged to learn from you and spend time with many of you while visiting more tribal communities than any other President. (Applause.) Standing Rock Sioux Tribe here? (Applause.) Choctaw Nation? (Applause.) Alaska Natives? (Applause.) My trips to your nations and communities are days that I will never forget. Michelle and I still talk about hosting those remarkable young people from Standing Rock Sioux Nation in the White House and taking them out for pizza. (Laughter.) My staff still talks about all the wonderful people in Kotzebue, Alaska, who tried to — they tried to teach them Iñupiaq, and tried to stuff them full of meat at Cariboufest. (Laughter.) And my brothers at Crow Nation, brothers and sisters here, I may be an adopted son of the Crow Nation, but I try not to play favorites. (Laughter.) Because I pledged to all of you when I first ran for President that I’d be a partner with all of you in the spirit of a true nation-to-nation relationship, to give all our children the future they deserve.
