July 2015 AIPI Newsletter

July 13, 2015

The National Congress of American Indian’s (NCAI) 2015 Mid Year Conference was held July 28th through July 30th in St. Paul, Minnesota. The event began, as always, with posting of colors and reports from the NCAI Executive Director, the NCAI Elected President, State and local leaders, and federal leaders. There was an interesting presentation on opportunities for digital governance by Megan Smith, the United States Chief Technology Officer and Special Advisor to President Obama. This was followed a policy overview from Kevin Washburn (Chickasaw), Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs, Department of the Interior.
