Early in his administration, President Richard Nixon dramatically changed the federal government's Native American policy to support self-determination for Native American tribes and restoration of their culture. Fortifying the fiduciary relationship of the federal government for the tribes was central to ensuring that the new policy succeeded. White House and administration officials who worked with President Nixon discuss the leadership, legislation, and litigation necessary to implement the policy and what it means to the American Indian. The Archivist of the United States, David Ferriero, will deliver opening remarks. Cosponsored with the Richard Nixon Foundation and the National Archives.
