Obama makes first visit as president to 'Indian Country'

US President Barack Obama (2nd R) and First Lady Michelle Obama (2nd L) walk to Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland, June 13, 2014Barack Obama left Washington Friday for his first visit as president to a Native American reservation, as he seeks to fulfill what he has called America’s “broken promises” to Indian Country. The president, accompanied by First Lady Michelle Obama, will pay a visit to the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota, the tribe of Sitting Bull, the Indian chief famous for his brave exploits in the Battle of Little Bighorn. In an op-ed that appeared in a Native American newspaper last week, Obama vowed to redouble his administration’s efforts to improve employment, education and self-determination in Native American communities. “We’re writing a new chapter in our history, one in which agreements are upheld, tribal sovereignty is respected, and every American Indian and Alaskan Native who works hard has the chance to get ahead,” the president wrote.
