WHNAA June 2022 Engagement Session
June 29, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm CDT
The White House Council on Native American Affairs (WHCNAA) invites you to meet with WHCNAA leadership on June 29, 2022, 3:30pm – 5:00pm EST.
As WHCNAA co-chair, U.S. Department of the Interior Secretary Deb Haaland will convene the hour and a half-hour engagement session between the WHCNAA Education Committee leadership and Tribal leaders. The Education Committee will focus on Native Language initiatives and seek Tribal leader guidance and feedback on those efforts. Specifically, the Committee will seek dialogue on the implementation of the Memorandum of Agreement on Native Languages, the White House Initiative on Advancing Educational Equity, Excellence, and Economic Opportunity for Native Americans and Strengthening Tribal Colleges and Universities per Executive Order 14049, funding opportunities, and a proposed Federal Plan on Native Languages.
During the June 29, 2022, session, Tribal leaders will be asked to share their guidance, recommendations, and perspectives on the WHCNAA Committee’s workstream and progress. The virtual engagement will also provide a valuable opportunity for federal agencies to share information about existing resources, future Tribal consultations, and initiatives being planned over the coming months.
Materials are available on the WHCNAA website (www.bia.gov/whcnaa). Please submit any written responses to the framing questions to email@example.com no later than July 22, 2022.
