Jefferson Keel, President of the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) presented this year’s State of the Indian Nation’s Address. His speech is entitled “Sovereign Indian Nations at the Dawn of a New Era.”
Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) delivered the congressional response to the address. The response here is not like the opposition party’s response to the President’s State of the Union speech. Senator Murkowski was not delivering a criticism, but was just giving her perspective as a longstanding
member of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs.
Check out the spleech and the response.
