“Obama can solve Native Americans’ problems”

Barack Obama, who is more sympathetic to Native Americans than his predecessors, can deal with the tribal sovereignty issue and end the infamous Leonard Peltier case, investigative journalist Wayne Madsen told RT.

The US president is hosting what is billed as the largest gathering of Native American tribes in US history. Obama promised a yearly summit to discuss the problems they face.

It’s expected that the infamous case of Leonard Peltier will come up. The rights campaigner was jailed for life in 1977 for shooting two FBI agents.
