NCAI President Jefferson Keel Honors President George H.W. Bush

Published on Dec 05, 2018

“The National Congress of American Indians honors the life and public service of President George H.W. Bush. We recognize his contributions as a Navy veteran who bravely served our country in World War II, and as a leader who helped to advance priorities deemed critical by Indian Country. From land and environmental protections to Native language revitalization to the repatriation of sacred items, President Bush’s fostering of a more collaborative government-to-government relationship with tribal nations lives on through policies that recognize and support tribal sovereignty and self-governance. On this day, as the country mourns a distinguished national hero, we extend our deepest condolences to the family and many friends of President George Herbert Walker Bush.”
