President Barack Obama says the relationship between the U.S. government and tribal nations is stronger today than ever.....

     CANNON BALL, N.D. (AP) - President Barack Obama says the relationship between the U.S. government and tribal nations is stronger today than ever, but there's much more to do to help Native Americans.
 
     Obama attended a powwow on the Standing Rock Reservation yesterday. It was his first visit to Indian Country as president.  Obama promoted the need to help reservations create jobs, strengthen justice, and improve health and education.
 
     He said young people should be able to live, work and raise a family on the land of their fathers and mothers.  Obama said the deck has been stacked against many Native Americans, but if the government does its part, it can break the cycle. He said that requires an investment from all parts of society.

     CANNON BALL, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota attorney and Native American rights activist says President Barack Obama's visit to the Standing Rock Reservation was overwhelmingly positive.
 
     Chase Iron Eyes says he would have liked to hear some concrete plans dealing with Native American issues unveiled during Friday's visit. But he says that Obama's trip to North Dakota was an important gesture to Native American people.  Iron Eyes is a Bismarck attorney who recently moved back to Standing Rock. He runs a website called Last Real Indians, an indigenous people media network.

     CANNON BALL, N.D. (AP) - Sen. Heidi Heitkamp says she's pleased that President Barack Obama focused on Native American children during his trip to the Standing Rock Reservation.
 
     Obama gave an afternoon speech Friday on the pow wow grounds in Cannon Ball. He said that young people should be able to live, work and raise a family on the land of their fathers and mothers.
 
     Heitkamp says Obama's message is one that rings true not only on Standing Rock but across all of Indian Country.
 
     The North Dakota Democrat says she's working on passing a bill endorsed by North Dakota's tribes that would create a national commission on Native American children to study on the effects of poverty, unemployment, child abuse, domestic violence, crime and substance abuse.
