United Tribes NewsSpeakers at White House Conference Focus on Robert F. Kennedy
13 November 2013
BISMARCK (UTN) - United Tribes Technical College President David M. Gipp focused on the Indian Country legacy of Robert F. Kennedy in a speech November 13 during the 5th Annual White House Tribal Nations Conference in Washington, DC. His talk recalled Kennedy's September 1963 visit to Bismarck, North Dakota for an address to the National Congress of American Indians, wherein the attorney general expressed the Kennedy Administration's commitment to justice for American Indians.
Gipp's talk at the U.S. Dept. of Interior introduced the nation's current attorney general, Eric Holder, for his remarks to the assembled tribal and government leaders. Between the two speeches a video produced by the Dept. of Justice was shown about the Kennedys legacy in Indian Country.
