Brothers, Niizhoo Sullivan, 10, and Preston Sullivan, 7 got the honor to sing for President Barack Obama at the opening of the 2014 White House Tribal Nations Conference on December 3rd, 2014. The Sullivan brothers are members of the Ho-Chunk Nation and the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe Tribe. The boys are students at the Waadookodaading Ojibwe Language Immersion School in Hayward, Wisconsin and sing on the Hay Creek drum.

President Obama hosted the White House Tribal Nations Conference at the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC. The conference provided leaders from the 566 federally recognized tribes the opportunity to interact directly with the President and members of the White House Council on Native American Affairs. Each federally recognized tribe had been invited to send one representative to the conference. This is the sixth White House Tribal Nations Conference for the Obama Administration.  The conference continues to build upon the President’s commitment to strengthen the government-to-government relationship with Indian Country and to improve the lives of Native Americans.
