NCAI Urges Tribes and Tribal Citizens to Protect Tribal Sovereignty

DENVER, CO – Recent assaults on Tribal sovereignty shaped the theme at the 75th Anniversary of the National Congress of American Indians Conference held in Denver, Colorado where hundreds of Tribal leaders met to hear first-hand accounts of the impacts on Indian Country.

“I think we often take our Tribal Sovereignty for granted and expect it to remain strong and in place for generations to come,” states Loris Taylor, President and CEO of Native Public Media. “We are learning that we must continue to exercise our Tribal Sovereignty, and even more so, be astute about its protection especially in the courts.”
