WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will address Native American leaders Dec. 2 as they gather for a White House sponsored tribal nations conference at the Interior Department. It will be Obama’s third conference with American Indians. Obama first met with tribal leaders in November of 2009.

The White House says Obama has made a commitment to strengthen government relations with American Indians. The conference will give leaders of the 565 federally recognized tribes an opportunity to interact directly with Obama and with top administration officials.

The 2009 event was the first meeting of its kind in 15 years.
