Remarks by Ambassador Susan E. Rice, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, at the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues


Thank you, Mr. Chairman, Members of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, Distinguished Representatives of indigenous groups from around the world, Excellencies and distinguished delegates. In his Presidential Proclamation last fall honoring Native American Heritage Month, President Obama recognized that the "indigenous peoples of North America-the First American-have woven rich and diverse threads into the tapestry of our Nation's heritage." What is true in the Americas is true around the world. There is no true history that does not take into account the story of indigenous populations-their proud traditions, their rich cultures, and their contributions to our shared heritage and identity.

Categories: Varios en ingles, USA

By Department of Interior, Washington, D.C.

The president: Thank you. Please, everybody have a seat. Thank you to Jefferson Keel, thanks for the wonderful introduction; to Clarence Jackson for the invocation. Good morning to all of you. I am honored to be with you today at this unique and historic event, the largest and most widely attended gathering of tribal leaders in our history. (Applause.) And I am so grateful to many members of Congress who could join us today, along with several members of my Cabinet who will be participating in this conference today.

You know, a couple of summers ago, I had the opportunity to visit the Crow Nation in Montana. And while I was there, I was adopted into the nation by a wonderful couple, Hartford and Mary Black Eagle. I know what they’re saying now: “Kids grow up so fast.” (Laughter.) Only in America could the adoptive son of Crow Indians grow up to become President of the United States. (Applause.)
