The National Congress of American Indians is opening a new embassy for tribal nations in Washington D.C. today:

For the first time since settlement, tribal nations will have a permanent
home in Washington, D.C. where they can more effectively assert their
sovereign status and facilitate a much stronger nation-to-nation relationship with the federal government," said NCAI President Jefferson Keel.

Later this week, the White House will host a conference of tribal nations which President Obama said he hopes will "strengthen the Nation-to-Nation relationship."
