President Barack Obama was honored Monday by Native Americans as an adopted son and a leader who has kept his promises, at the 8th Annual White House Tribal Nations Conference. This year, many of the Native American participants are focused on stopping a proposed pipeline that would carry oil through four states, from North Dakota to Illinois. VOA White House Correspondent Cindy Saine has the story from the White House.
