Cayuga Nation Federal Representative Clint Halftown traveled to Washington, D.C. last week after he was invited to attend other Native American Nation leaders at the White House Tribal Nations Summit. The Summit was an opportunity for Native American leaders to hear from several top officials in the federal government and engage with them on key issues of concern to Indian country.
Halftown was selected to serve as the Cayuga Nation’s leader and federal representative by an overwhelming majority of the Cayuga Nation. He spent time in several meetings in the Capital regarding Native issues.
“While we are a sovereign and self-governing Nation, it was an honor to be invited to represent the Cayuga Nation and its interests before President Biden and the rest of the federal government last week,” said Halftown. “We appreciate the Biden Administration’s support of Indian country.”
The Tribal Nations Summit took place on November 30th and December 1st.
