Obama Staff Fielding Questions on Twitter Addressing Indian Country

American Indians and the rest of the country have a chance for their voices to be heard today, as members of the Obama administration, Kimberly Teehee, Senior Policy Advisor for Native American Affairs and Charlie Galbraith, Associate Director for Intergovernmental Affairs, will be fielding questions via Twitter at hashtag #WHChat.

Indian country has felt the affects of a federal government divided, from budget cuts, and bills being left on the legislative floor. But as President Obama said in his address in regards to the federal government coming together for the greater good of the country, “Those of us who’ve been sent here to serve can learn a thing or two from the service of our troops. When you put on that uniform, it doesn’t matter if you’re black or white; Asian, Latino, Native American; conservative, liberal; rich, poor; gay, straight. When you’re marching into battle, you look out for the person next to you, or the mission fails. When you’re in the thick of the fight, you rise or fall as one unit, serving one nation, leaving no one behind.”

Teehee and Galbraith will be discussing the issues that President Barack Obama addressed during his State of the Union speech on January 24 and how the affect the issues could have on Indian country. The discussion will begin at 3 p.m. EST.

You can follow the live Q&A here or in case you are unable to the full session will be posted to the White House website.
