Tribal Summit Talks About Energy On Native Nations

Posted:

Energy is a hot topic being addressed at the Bismarck Civic Center.

This afternoon an Energy Panel made up of state and tribal officials discuss North Dakota's oil boom and the impacts the boom has on Native Nations.

The panel talked about how sequestration could impact energy projects today at the United Tribes Technical College Summit.

Tribal Chairman of the Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara Nation, Tex Hall says the tribes have many energy projects and it's important to do everything they can to keep them going.

<<"Well it's unprecedented, revenues are now coming into the Three Affiliated Tribes, we've never seen revenues like this before so this is really huge, 800 oil wells, we've never seen these kind of revenues before so it's really managing it now and putting systems in place for protections and creating trust funds for these revenues," Tex Hall, Tribal Chairman of the Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara Nation said.>>

Hall says it's also important for tribes to talk with members of congress about the need for energy independence.

Tomorrow the Summit will address Education and Healthcare issues impacting Native Nations.
