First Lady says husband will soon appoint American Indian policy adviser

On Feb. 9, 2009, Michelle Obama visited the Department of Interior and told the department's workers that President Obama would soon appoint an adviser for Native American issues.

"Barack has pledged to honor the unique government-to-government relationship between tribes and the federal government," she said. "And he'll soon appoint a policy adviser to his senior White House staff to work with tribes and across the government on these issues such as sovereignty, health care, education — all central to the well-being of Native American families and the prosperity of tribes all across this country."

Mrs. Obama's remarks and photographs of the visit were subsequently posted to the White House Web site. She has been visiting federal agencies to greet federal workers and thank them for their service.
