Paxton Myers, an EBCI tribal member, participated in a recent Obama campaign event at the Chicago headquarters. Myers joined other interested Native Americans in assisting the Obama campaign in outlining issues important to Native communities. Myers participation brings tribal issues directly to the candidate for consideration and will be part of a larger effort to make changes Native communities feel are important. President Obama convenes annually with tribal leaders to develop meaningful dialogue between governmental agencies and tribal communities.
