T f President makes trip to North Dakota Looks to the future of the country, honors tradition By John Rosinski of Nordmark Publishing CANNON BALL, N.D. -- Sur- rounded by 80 American flags snap- ping in the wind, on a small hill overlooking the Missouri River, President Barack Obama made his first visit to North Dakota last week. The President was joined by First Lady Michelle Obama on a trip to Cannon Ball, a small communi- ty nestled within the Standing Rock Reservation. After landing Air Force One in Bismarck just after 2 p.m., the Obamas flew into Cannon Ball aboard Marine One, arriving on the site about a half hour later. The President and First Lady then met with some of the Standing Rock youth, and tribal leaders dur- ing a closed door roundtable dis- cussion. Following the meeting Presi- dent Obama and the First Lady at- tended a powwow, which was be- ing held in conjunction with a Flag Day celebration. President Obama delivered some remarks during the event in which he touched on a range of issues. One of the items mentioned by the Pres- ident was of particular interest to members of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa, including Tur- tle Mountain Tribal Chairman Richard McCloud, who was in at- tendance. It was in early April the Turtle Mountain Tribal Judicial Board instituted formal charges against Chief Tribal Judge Madon- na Marcellais, Tribal Judge Andy Laverdure and Tribal Clerk of Court Jolene House. Although Obama wasn't discussing the issues sur- rounding the Turtle Mountain trib- al court directly, he did indicate steps are being taking at the federal lev- el to make the system nan as smooth as possible. "My administration has gone further than any in history to strengthen the sovereignty of trib- al courts, particularly when it comes to criminal sentencing and prose- ,,aatiapeople-.w.,zxmmfit,vio- ]ce agfiinstwomen," Obama said. "AndStanding Rock has done a ter- rific job at building a court system that is open and efficient, and de- livers justice to your people.

McCloud said prior to Obama's visit he wanted to convince him to add Turtle Mountain to the White House's Promise Zones Initiative that partners with local communi- ties and businesses. If Turtle Moun- tain were to be designated as a Promise Zone, McCloud said the tribe would utilize the federal dol- lars to create its own asphalt plant that could rebuild several of the de- teriorating roads throughout the area." During his 12 minute remarks, Obama also discussed the relation- ship between the Tribal and Feder- al govemments. "And today, I'm proud that the government-to-government rela- tionship between Washington and tribal nations is stronger than ever. Sally Jewell has been doing great work. Her predecessor, Ken Salazar, did great work to make sure that we were listening to you." Obama also noted the govem- ment has "made major investments to help grow tribal economies, in- vestments in job training and trib- al colleges; roads and high-speed In- Photo: John Rosinski Rock youth in Cannon Ball, N.D. temet. And thanks to the Affordable Care Act, Native American, like all Americans, finally have access to qualify, affordable health care." Obama added that while learning from the past was important, noth- ing trumped the future. He de- scribed the young people he met as resilient and wanting to make a name for themselves. "They've overcome a lot, but they're strong and they're still standing, and they're moving for- ward," Obama said. "But they talked about the challenges of liv- ing in two worlds and being both "Native" and "American." And some bright young people like the ones we met today might look around and sometimes wonder if the United States really is thinking about them and caring about them, and has a place for them, too." Obama concluded his remarks by again looking to the future. "So let's put our minds together to build more economic opportuni- ty in Indian Country, because every American, including every Native American, deserves the chance to work hard and get ahead. That means creating more jobs and sup- porting small businesses in places like Standing Rock." Following his remarks the Pres- ident and First Lady spent a few minutes visiting with several of the dancers before boarding Marine One back to Bismarck. From there they spend the night in California. President Obama's visit trans- formed the quiet community of Cannon Ball into an international hub of activity. Residents spotted helicopters canvassing the area sev- eral days prior to his visit. On Fri- day, the community was essential- ly on lockdown. Residents couldn't leave after 9 a.m., and it was all but impossible to get into the city with- out proper identification. Those who attended the event were also greeted with airport like security. Bomb sniffing dogs cov- ered the powwow grounds, as did several members of the Secret Serv- , ice. "'  t) President Obama became the first sitting U.S. President to visit In- dian Country since President Bill Clinton traveled to Pine Ridge, South Dakota in 1999. It was the fLrst presidential visit of any kind in North Dakota since President George W. Bush visited the state in 2005.
