Assessing Biden’s presidency so far
The Biden Administration touts support for tribal consultation; policies aimed at helping Native businesses; federal money for energy projects, infrastructure, and connectivity; and respect for Native land among the accomplishments that favor Indian Country since he took office.

Some other federal land and energy policies have drawn both praise and criticism. This President’s Day on Native America Calling, let’s discuss how President Joe Biden’s term so far resonates with tribal interests.
