President Obama made his first visit to Indian Country. 

The president attended a small outdoor pow-wow in Cannon Ball, North Dakota, on the Standing Rock Reservation.    
President Obama reaffirmed his commitment in maintaining a positive relationship with tribes and offers new plans to overhaul tribal education and to improve economic development in Indian Country.
Many tribal residents welcome his visit  and hope his promises are kept.
