Prez on the Rez Set for Summer; Richardson Committed To Attend

Tribal leaders from across the nation will get a chance to see and hear the future President of the United States at the "Prez on the Rez” candidate forum -- set for August 23rd at the Morongo Band of Mission Indians’ Reservation in California.

Tribal Chairman Robert Martin said the tribe couldn't be more proud to make history for Indian Country by hosting this "extraordinary" event.

"No major presidential campaign event has ever come to Indian Country," Martin said. "This represents a historic opportunity for this country's first Americans to take a direct role in the future of America by holding a national level forum for presidential candidates."
