The official White House photo featuring a Presidential meeting of several tribal leaders, including Osage Nation Principal Chief John Red Eagle, is being used on the White House’s new Web site for Native Americans.
The Web site features blog postings, videos and news articles related to Native Americans. The Web site also features links to various resources such as federal government departments and prepared statements and news releases.
In December 2010, President Barack Obama met with 12 tribal leaders in the Roosevelt Room of the White House. Chief Red Eagle was among those selected for the Dec. 15 meeting – one day before the annual Tribal Nations Conference started.
A photo of this meeting was shot, featuring Chief Red Eagle sitting at the left end of the table wearing his blue and red broadcloth blanket. He gave the opening prayer before the meeting started.
