Oklahoma Tribal Leaders Meet With President Obama
Two tribal leaders from Oklahoma were among 12 Native American officials who recently met with President Barack Obama at the White House.
Chickasaw Nation Gov. Bill Anoatubby and Wichita and Affiliated Tribes President Terri Parton were among the leaders who met with Obama on Tuesday, the day before the White House Tribal Nations Conference.
Obama, administration officials and the tribal leaders discussed job creation, economic development and other issues important to Native Americans.
Anoatubby said the meeting is further evidence that the president is committed to working closely with tribes.
